Come and Watch Intelligent Lives on April 17th at 6:00 P.M.

From award-winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes INTELLIGENT LIVES, a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for the most systematically segregated people in America.

INTELLIGENT LIVES stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.

INTELLIGENT LIVES challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment, and intimate relationships.

Film length: 70 minutes

Please help us with traffic flow

Because of our location arrival and dismissal are challenging. There are a few things that can help:

  • No Parking Zones: Please observe designated No Parking zone on W Cedar heading away from Bristol. Cars parked here slow traffic flow and create an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
  • U-Turns: Please do not make U-Turns on Gray or in the intersection or Gray & Cedar during arrival or dismissal. This slows traffic flow and creates an unsafe situation at the crosswalk. Thank You!
  • Drop & Go: Please refrain from parking and exiting your vehicle during arrival & dismissal times. If you must park please pull all the way down Gray or park on a neighboring street.

Thank you!

Little Statemen Store

The Ambrose PTO has gained permission to open an online Little Statesmen Store specializing in spirit wear for the youngest of children in the district (infants through preschool). The High School Parents Club graciously shared their designs with us so we could be the providers for little kids. Please help our PTO support the Ambrose Center by sharing this information. The store will be open for three weeks so timing is everything.

What's for Breakfast & Lunch?

Find Breakfast and Lunch menus here:

Allergies & Lunch Room Seating

To ensure the health and safety of all students during lunch, and to make sure everyone feels included, we provide tree nut & peanut free tables/seating on each side of the cafeteria. These tables are clearly marked. Please note that students who buy school lunches are allowed to sit at the peanut free tables. If your child brings a lunch from home and wants to sit at the peanut free table with a friend, they need to check with an adult to ensure their lunch doesn't contain any nuts.

Thank you!
