My daughter is now in 5th grade and my son in 3rd grade at Ambuehl Elementary. I can say every year has been amazing. We are a fairly small school with an incredible family feeling. We could not have asked for better teachers and staff. Everyone is so caring and loving and shows real concern for everyone. I would highly recommend this school to everyone.
This is our seventh year at Ambuehl and we still have a few more years to go with our last of 3 children. It has been nothing but a positive experience for our family, both academically and personally. I look forward to our youngest experiencing what our older children have and feel fortunate and blessed to call Ambuehl our family's home away from home.
Ambuehl is a small, private school like public school with amazing teachers and parental involvement. My 2 kids have had an outstanding education there. Many people I know have left their private schools and come to Ambuehl when they realize their kids are behind and they are having to hire tutors to catch them up and also pay tuition. The school is top notch and parents should tour it and look past the olderish buildings and at what is really important; Excellent teachers and amazing extras like a science lab, music for all grade levels, an instructional aide in each class and an Artist program that focuses on the great artists of our times... all sponsored by the PTA! Don't miss out.
My school is Ambuehl Elementary School (aka Harold Ambuehl Elementary). This school has a great faculty, nice, safe neighborhood environment, and huge play ground and grassy areas. The active PTA supplies SO MUCH for the school that it has a lot of amenities that other schools may not have. Ambuehl has a science lab, roaming teacher's aide, music, art program, computer lab and great activities and programs all year long. I highly recommend it for a caring, educational environment.
Ambuehl is the best school. It has that small town family feel with teachers that have been there for many years. You see the same faces year after year which gives you a level of comfort and that warm & fuzzy feeling. The parent involvement is special because parents WANT to be involoved. They love getting in the classroom with the kids and it allows you to be on the same page with teachers and our children. Ambuehl is like a home away from home. What is most important about our school is our high level of expectations. We may not have the highest scores in the district, but as a whole the level of education, the responsibility and respect expected from our children is stand out and I can see that in my own children by how they grow each day to be better children with morals, kindness, and intelligience. I feel that it is a joint effort, from home and from our school. Go Ambuehl Eagles!
Wonderful school with an involved Principal and fabulous teachers. We have had a great experience with this family oriented school!
Some teachers obsessed with diagnosing children with ADD. 1 teacher in particular loses her head and yells at student and parents. She is a stickler for rules like hanging backpacks a particular way. Luckily not my children's teacher. Principal is diversified, he has a television program on for kids on a local cable network. Very clickish school. Parents tend to be high income. Many stay at home moms in the area with alot of involvement in the school.
Our experience: xlnt grades K - 3, not as great 4-5. Varies from year to year as staff tends to switch grade levels often. Very involved and supportive parent base.
DIfficulty with ethnicity issues. Primary teacher good, but advanced teachers were uncommunicative, even after repeated requests. Nice location, but not worth the attitude.
Ambuehl is an outstanding school! There are great clubs, art programs, and music programs available to the kids. The level of parental involvement is amazing.
A great school with great teachers and admin. needs better facilities..
