This is our 6th year (K-5) at Ambrose and we love it! We debated private vs public, but we're very happy with our choice to send our kids here. The teachers and overall education are excellent, the administrative staff very helpful and personable, and there are plenty of extracurriculars to round out the experience. Families are very involved. Since there are five elementary schools in Winchester, each is a nice relatively small neighborhood school. We've had a great experience and highly recommend Ambrose if you're moving to the area!

We've been at Ambrose for 3 years and have been very pleased. The principal is very responsive and caring, and really does know each and every student. The teachers are top quality. We are so happy to be in the Winchester schools!

We have had a wonderful experience at Ambrose Elementary. We've moved quite a bit, so this is our third elementary school, and we feel like it's the best so far. The teachers are wonderful, and the other programs (music, PE, art) also are great. There is a great deal of testing, which we don't get excited about, but that has more to do with state requirements. The school was completely renovated a few years ago, and it's beautiful. The principal is also great--she knew my kids by name almost immediately. The PTO is involved, and there are a lot of parent volunteers, which is always a sign of a healthy school. I highly recommend the Winchester schools to anyone who might be moving to the area. Taxes and housing is expensive, but we feel like we get our money's worth here.
