Horrible school, teachers are not interesting in students progress, not helping students at all. I would not go there again if it was the last school on earth. There is a lot of bulling going on , the education level is low teachers give students homework once a month.

My granddaughter will be going into the second grade there this year. I have found that the teachers there strive for your child to be their very best.You don't find that in a lot of schools anymore. Something that is very much needed for any child.

My child attended school here for 3 years. The schools reading & testing levels have always been below the standards. I think the teachers are awesome people but perhaps introducing stronger reading & learning programs will help the students. Since her move to a new school, I can tell that Amberlea ...  Read more

The staff at Amberlea are kind and caring adults who want the children at the school to succeed. The teachers do their best to work with the parents to help the kids. The Principal and Assistant Principal are fair in their discipline and are always willing to speak with parents.
