I went to Ascension for seven years, starting when it opened. The school is plenty rich, and there are TV's in every classroom as well as computers, smartboards, and a new program called accelerated math. I didn't get to use most of these technological advances because they were implenmented some years after I left. Money doesn't always buy good education though. My time there could have been well spent at some other school.
When I attended years ago, there was a principal that has since left that was very strange. Even parents felt uncomfortable around him. That is one the reasons for the poor rating.
Other reasons for the poor rating include clueless teachers, bad english teaching, and not enough classrooms.
