    "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."

    "Ambuehl is a small, private school like public school with amazing teachers and parental involvement. My 2 kids have had an outstanding education there. Many people I know have left their private schools and come to Ambuehl when they realize their kids are behind and they are having to hire tutors to catch them up and also pay tuition. The school is top notch and parents should tour it and look past the olderish buildings and at what is really important; Excellent teachers and amazing extras like a science lab, music for all grade levels, an instructional aide in each class and an Artist program that focuses on the great artists of our times... all sponsored by the PTA! Don't miss out."
