The Grammar Stage: Grades K - 6

Everyone loves to do what they are good at! During the Grammar phase, children are eager to memorize and we challenge them with facts that span all subjects from Bible to history to science. We use songs, chants, and rhymes to help children enjoy the learning experience. These years build a solid framework of knowledge that will serve them for life.  

BUILDING CHARACTER THROUGH GRADE LEVEL THEMES

Every grade in the Grammar School has a grade level theme. Like a treasure hunt, students look for these ideas in Scripture, in history, in stories, and in how they interact with each other.

“Our goal for our children's education has always been for them to be at a school that would reinforce all the biblical truths we are teaching at home, and for them to be surrounded with like-minded children and families. Once we discovered The Ambrose School we realized it is the ideal school for our children.”
