The Ambrose School Reviews

88 reviews
All Categories
Ambrose has been an incredible blessing to our family over the last nine years. Rather than a school we "send our kids to," Ambrose is a partner that comes alongside us in raising our children, both in academics and character. The quantitative data easily demonstrates Ambrose's academic excellence, but it doesn't adequately portray the love of learning that is cultivated by teachers who share their passion for knowledge with the students. Nor do the numbers express the development of character that fosters a "we before me" pursuit. So, yes, my children do love school. Yes, they have been taught to think deeply and speak well. And, yes, sometimes they do have to work hard in order to learn how to do hard things. But, more importantly, they have been surrounded by a community of supporting friends and loving teachers along their journey towards truth, beauty and goodness.

I have gone to Ambrose for all thirteen years of school that they offer. While no school is perfect, I think that Ambrose has well made up for its flaws with the genuine loving and Christian atmosphere they offer. I have been taught how to think critically, and to voice my opinions with respect and clarity; all the while remembering that what I do is for Christ. The teachers are caring and supportive striving to building my character, and appreciation for what is of value. I have loved my time at Ambrose and have cherished the community there, if I would have to state one thing over all that could be improved upon I would say that the homework load is excessive at times and does take away from my free time, and emphasis on having good grades is something the older student body struggles with.
The rigorous Ambrose curriculum has broadened my skills and greatly prepared me for college. The classical books and Socratic discussions have opened my mind to learn more things. However, I wish there were more science courses to chose from.
