Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
Huge amounts of mindless work, if you want to play sports, you will be up until 1-2 am doing homework.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Headmaster is effective in marketing, and bringing in new families. Enrollment numbers and SAT scores, are top priority.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
We strongly warn parents to consider the fact that almost none of the teachers are trained or credentialed to teach. This really does matter!



- a
Our child has attended Ambrose for the last several years. Our child has since lost their faith in God, as a direct result of the utter hypocrisy and superiority complex witnessed by our child. It's impossible as a parent to reconcile things said and done, and convince a thinking and intelligent young mind that those things are acceptable, because they are not. Things like teacher's spouting views and opinions that are liberal, and don't align with our Christian evangelistic beliefs. Things like being ignored and put down by "friends" because we don't allow the latest cell phone, group texting at all hours and snapchat. Teacher's openly teaching and supporting old earth evolutionary theories. Being told that you must not have your heart right with the Lord if your work isn't perfect. We are done. We will be joining the dozens of ex-Ambrose families, in counseling to try to get a grasp on how we missed the red flags, how to get our child's Faith back, and try to heal from this experience. Public school would have been better than this.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
Very poor leadership. Dismissive of parent complaints.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Way too much homework is given, no room for family time, or youth group.



- a
This school used to be awesome. Sadly, since the arrival of "new" administration, it's a sinking ship. Parent's have zero say or input and concerns are ignored. Teachers range from great to terrible. Anyone with an open check-book is admitted, no matter of Christian values or lifestyle. The priority is marketing, money and enrollment numbers. It's not about the kids any more. The school board is totally biased and 90% have spouse that are employed by the school. There is no check and balance system at all. Many families are leaving, and frankly it's heart breaking to watch.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
How can you have good leadership when there is no transparency, or accountability? This school runs like a dictatorship


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Certified, trained teachers are required by any other standard in public and private schools. We believe the reason they do not hire such teachers is so they can "train" them to teach what they want them to teach, whether it's actually proper education or not.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
The homework is over the top. Both my wife and I are highly educated professionals, with multiple degrees and we never had this type of homework load in high school or college. It deflates the kids, and causes stress to the point of physical illness.
