For guidance in understanding what our Ambleside school is about, these videos by Bill and Maryellen St. Cyr, founders of Ambleside Schools and fellow implementors of Charlotte's approach, are a good place to start. Each video is about 9 minutes long, and each hits on concepts that are important to an Ambleside school.

About Ambleside

We are grateful and pleased to announce that we have relocated for the 2017/18 school year and are now directly off the Northway Exit 19 at 15 Burke Drive, Queensbury, NY 12804!

Children within a 20 mile radius of our facility in Queensbury, NY are eligible for public school busing.

Ambleside is an independent Kindergarten Readiness-8th grade school. We strive to educate the whole child, from the traditional subjects of reading, writing and arithmetic to the forgotten courses of handwriting, art, music appreciation, composer study, poetry, and nature study.

Want to find out more and be a part of our educational experience? Call and make an appointment to visit our classrooms! Please phone (518) 744-5320, or contact us !
