    "My kids transferred to Ambuehl this year and we are so very happy! My son is a second grader and has Mr. Coon who is the kindest and most patient man. My son is happier than he has been at school ever. My daughter is in fifth grade and she adjusted quickly and made friends right away. Mrs. Norgren is the perfect fifth-grade teacher and she knows how to deal with these kids that are not really so little anymore. The RSP teacher Mrs. Stone is really great and my daughter feels like she has learned more this year than she ever had in all the rest of her years at her other school. Both of my kids would tell you that their teachers are the best. If you are looking for a school with caring teachers and a laid back atmosphere that will remind you of how school used to be and this is the school for you."

    "I completely agree with the previous parent who posted one star. The principal does nothing to correct issues. For any child with special needs, almost no help is given. District rules are followed but that's it. You have to push and push to get any issues addressed. My son's 3rd grade year was so bad that the teacher retired and 5-6 families left the school. We had enough. Behavior issues are ignored, bullying on the playground goes unaddressed. We finally had to force the principal to allow parents to assist with playground times just to be assured our kids were safe. The PTO is very involved and does a lot for the school. Many involved parents. It would be a wonderful small town school if they get better management."

    "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."
