Sign up for the Pre-K class early. It fills up quick! Mrs Sidney is awesome!
I am a substitute teacher who, like many other subs I know, won't go to Ambler. I understand that when a sub shows up the kids are thrown off because the usual authority figure is gone, so they take advantage. However, these kids go beyond the norm. They are loud, unruly and show no respect. It makes for a long, stressful day.
Mrs Sidney and Mrs Dickerson are awesome with the Pre-K children! They teach alot and generally care about the students.
I think Ambler is a great school. My daughter went to Ambler now my grandchildren is attending. The teachers are very attending to the student needs and if the students were to do all that is required in the class and homework "the students will grow by leaps and bounds." Different Culture involvement and the field trips are very educational. Small classroom size is always a plus. Great school!!!
This school is a very good school it has excellent staff it made many of my family members get into great schools including: Dodson middle school, King Drew high school, Stanford, Dartmouth, El Camino, and even Columbia. I truly recommend this school to anyone reading this review
My son is part of their ICAP program. In my opinion it is the best special ED program LA Unified has. I know there is an excellent magnet at the school and great parent involvement. I've have ovserved school activities and I speak with office staff routinely . They have a great staff, courteous kids, and a priority of providing a safe enviroment for their students.
My son just completed his kindergarten year at Ambler. The school is under the leadership of Mrs. Ellis who does an outstanding job of setting the tone and spirit of academic excellence for Ambler. The kinder teaching team is AWESOME! Mrs. Nakata, Ms. Harris, and Ms. Veceles are all very committed and dedicated to helping each child develop to his/her fullest potential. My son is very bright and I had concerns that he may not be challenged enough. The kinder team did a great job of dividing the students based on ability and meeting each child at his/her point of need. I highly recommend Ambler Elementary Gifted and Magnet School.
I have a son and daughter in Ambler. In my opinion, it is the best public school in the area. Doubt me? Take a look at the test scores for these kids at Ambler. The proof is in the figures, this is a great school indeed!
My dauhgter loves this school. She says that her teacher Mrs.Ali a 4 grad magnet teacher adores her.=}
i love this school i sent all of my children to this school and the kids learn the teachers are great and the students are friendly
my children have went for five years and they are going to graduate in June it has been a wonderful experience. The teachers are very dedicated and they also have a wonderful staff. I feel safe with my children going here. Great school
This is high quality teaching for my child. She is eager to learn from her teacher and learn music. Spelling and reading are the subject she love. All of her teacher really are great.
I think Ambler Avenue school is a great school. The new principle is well qualified and I see positive changes since she came aboard. Ambler has a lot of potential.
My daughter has been at this school since pre-k, she is now in the 5th grade. I have had many ups and downs with the classes she has been in. My experience has been the magnet classes get more attention the the regular classes. I feel the school focuses on the yearly tests given rather than learning the basics. If a child is not doing well in a particular subject, they do not offer any classroom assistance to help the child stay on grade level with the subject. The homework club is a joke, no one on assistance! Ambler needs to slow down in the class rooms. They have way to many children in each class also.
My daughter just completed the 4th grade magnet program at Ambler. This is her 3rd year in the magnet program, and her 4th at the school. I have been in awe at the wonderful teaching staff that these children have access to. Thank God for Ms. Fruedenberg - she really helped my daughter excel in the subject that she was struggling in the year before. Thanks to her and Ambler, my daughter is not a happy young lady!
This school is getting better, unfortunately this is my daughter's last year.
I am enjoying my experience at Ambler Avenue School. I feel that our new principal is doing a great job in changing the learning environment at Ambler. I believe with positive parent participation Ambler can grow to be a school that Carson can be proud of.
Great open court reading program. Immaculate extra curricular activities. Tremendous parent involvement.
New principal at school seems to really want to improve the school. School also has an afterschool program that allows yard time for kids to play.
