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.
