My son went to St. Ambrose and it was the best decision we made for his education. Outstanding academics, teachers, and faculty. My son felt embraced and enjoyed every second there. We had amazing access to teachers and staff with constant feedback which made students and parents feel comfortable. In this great environment, a child thrives, advances academically, and enjoys the friendships made within a caring school. we love it! we recommend it and will always consider it as one of the best experiences we have had in the US. Thank you, St Ambrose! Keep shining... God Bless.

Our son graduated from St. Ambrose and now grandchildren attend this loving school. If you want your children or grandchildren to gain the foundation of a great education with a focus on STEM, community involvement, and self-esteem this is the school for you. We wanted our kids to gain the critical foundation in elementary school to love learning and not be bombarded with woke programs or ideas when they are so young and impressionable. Learning Spanish starting in kindergarten is a huge plus.

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.
