St. Ambrose school has been a wonderful experience for my children. I have three children attending this school and each learns very differently.

My son attended St. Ambrose for Pre-K through eighth grade and went on to attend both an outstanding Catholic high school and Catholic college. Despite a diagnosis of "visual perception impairment," my son was nurtured and very successfully educated in a caring Christian environment by excellent teachers.

As a former student, I believe I can give a realistic view of St. Ambrose. First off, the situation with the bullying is in no part the faculty's fault, it is the students; they're kids, they do whatever it takes to be popular, and yes the mothers are much worse than the kids. In the arts, the choir
... Read more is great, the instrumentals are great, as were the plays when I was there. The art program is good, yet kids just never seem to have a huge interest in it. The music class however, is awful; it is more of a religion class than it is music and all I learned from it was the 7 composers. Religiously the school is strong; the classes are good, but the mass programs that we had to do were just terrible. In science we certainly learned and the teacher tried to make it interesting, she was just a little much though. History was the best, a teacher with a passion for teaching who was so under appreciated though. English and reading were great, they picked interesting books and I actually enjoyed reading, the writing was well instructed too. Spanish was the best it could be, I had it twice a week and the info taken helped a lot in high school. The gym program was repetitive, but fun anyway. Read less

Bullying is not tolerated. St. Ambrose is a great school, but it is definitely not a miracle maker. The principal deals quickly on any report of bullying, and there are definitely consequences to the behavior. However, you have to remember that the school did not create the bully. That began at home

Unfortunately, the bullying at this school persists. There was so much hope but the popular kids and their mothers continue to behave as they did under the old regime. The teachers are friendly with these mothers so they never reprimand these students. The sad part is that some of the younger teachers,
... Read more themselves, are being bullied by these students. There is a lot of disrespect towards nice, good teachers. Their parents believe for some reason that their children are above the rules. Why must a good teacher who is kind be treated in this ugly manner every day? Especially when these students parents requested the teacher. It's awful to listen and watch each day as this teacher is mimicked, made fun of, hurt by a bunch of spoiled brats. The school will be a better place when they leave. Lets hope they take their mothers with them! Read less

If you have left this wonderful school then I hope you find the peace and happiness that you are searching for. The rest of us are quite happy here and find SAS to be a second home. Most of our children are thriving and loving life at this school Almost all of the children are involved in after school

These parents are good people trying to create a moral, spiritual and academic future for their children. St. Ambrose is a blessing and I am grateful and blessed to be able to send my daughter here. It is okay for those few who have left St. Ambrose to move on now. Obviously this wasn't the best fit for you. You are happy, we are very happy and that is as it should be. Turn your energies to your own family and live a happy life. We are so good here. Read less
