Ambleside School Of San Angelo Reviews
worst experience a parent and child could possibly have
inappropriateness at its' peak with students of all ages 4-17 interacting with very poor supervision and even worst structure. very serious incidences were denied with responses like no one saw or knew anything followed by maybe it's not a right fit.
inappropriate circumstances with sensitive and serious concerns were met with denials and displays of ignorance instead of the obvious negligence, ultimately lacking structure and professionalism but most importantly integrity.
Enrollment is up 22% in the past year alone, especially in the upper grades. Growing and nurturing children while their minds are exposed to great ideas in a loving Christian atmosphere. Rigorous mathematics, language arts, science, and history, and many other subjects are a standard part of the curriculum; Music, violin, art, Spanish, nature study, artist and composer study, citizenship, grammar, and an emphasis on community service.
Ambleside School of San Angelo is truly unique in its philosophy and methodology. I had all but given up on primary education until I saw what was happening at this amazing school. The Charlotte Mason philosophy is based in every child being seen as a person, deserving a rich education filled with living ideas, art, music, Bible, language, field study, strings, and a strong core curriculum in literature, history, math and science. The goal is to have students love learning and Ambleside students do just that. They also build real and lasting relationships with each other. Most of these things cannot be found in the public school system anymore, and are a priceless commodity for any parent. The twice yearly, teacher designed essay style examinations are a true reflection of the great ideas the students have learned in a semester. The field studies (trips) are designed for student learning in the curriculum they are studying. Children at Ambleside truly love to learn the great ideas placed before them in a safe Christian environment.
Small class sizes is a nicer way of saying low enrollment
Enrollment lowering as grade level increases and very few graduates completing this school says it all.
Ambleside is Amazing
Ambleside School of San Angelo has an amazing Christian atmosphere that feels like home for the students. Children want to come to school because they love the learning and take joy in discovering great ideas through living books. The kind and caring staff walk hand-in-hand with parents to cooperatively bring up a child in the way that they should go.

My daughter was enrolled in a private Catholic school in San Angelo from pre-k through 1st grade and wasn't excelling academically and we were not filled with a feeling of safety, love or comradery , so we made the switch to Ambleside. I cannot express how pleased and excited she and I have been with this school. I have never seen so much love shown between the staff and the children, the staff and the parents and even between all the parents themselves. When you walk through the doors, it's as if you're with your family. And the morning chapel, academics, art and music are just outstanding. My daughter likes to go as early as possible and wants to stay even after she has been dismissed. They have taught her to love learning. It's the best decision we have ever made. I cannot recommend this school enough. RUN...don't walk....to Ambleside!
