Wow. Ambleside is just what we were looking for! It has warm community, small classes, teachers who are relationally connected to each student and are committed to their growth, excellent classical curriculum, and an amazing atmosphere that is peaceful and joyful. My children are thriving and love school. The spiritual emphasis on Christ is beautiful. At Ambleside my children are loving to learn and they care about what they are learning. I am so thankful for a school that intentionally brings students to maturity and has them think on ideas that are good, true and beautiful!
