What differentiates your school from all others?
From a family who made the change from public school to St. Ambrose:
While my kids were getting a fine education in the public school setting, something was missing. That something was true expressions of love - love of Christ, love of the Catholic faith, love for educating the whole child, love of neighbor over self, love of children and parents. After our first ice cream social the first day of school at St. Ambrose School (what to many is a crazy, chaotic event), I found a true home for our family, filled with joy and LOVE. I couldn't be be satisfied with a fine education when I knew my kids deserved an exceptional education. St. Ambrose School delivers on that!
Why should we choose your school?
From a family who is moving mid-year:
We are so very sad to be leaving St. Ambrose because we have LOVED it. The kids grew in the most amazing way during their time with you. I am so impressed with all of the people who have taught my two children and their dedication to educating kids, not just in math and science, but also in the more important things….kindness, love, goodness, and their faith in Jesus. I cannot thank all of you enough.
