My son has been going to St Ambrose for Kindergarten and it has been a great experience. My son loves the school: the students are very welcoming and well behave, the staff is warm. He is having a blast. I love the school also seen my son so happy. And academically he is thriving. Mrs. F. from Kindergarten taught him how to read and write very efficiently. He does math also, technology and they also have Spanish for all students! I would recommend to anyone. The school is not too big so new kids don't feel overwhelmed.
