I am a parent of two graduates, and I attended this school as a child. St. Andrews really values character and nurturing of its kids. It is a very warm community. Both my kids matriculated to the local private high schools and were well prepared. There are many extracurriculars that really grow the 'whole child' in a "whole-hearted" way!

Both my kids attended Saint Andrew's from 1st to 8th grade. The youngest one just completed 8th grade this year. We feel that the program is very well balanced with the appropriate mix of academics, sports, performing arts, and character education. The small class size allows the teachers and students to know each other very well. Students are comfortable speaking publicly for their project presentations. In addition to the core academic subjects, Music, P.E., Computer Technology, are also part of the standard curriculum. Students from the school have a strong sense of ethics and social justice issues from regular discussions in Religion and Social Studies classes. Sports teams, orchestra, choir, jazz/pop band, and school play have a no-cut policy so students get to try a variety of extracurricular activities. The parents community is amazingly active and friendly. Graduates from Saint Andrew's are well sought after by the local competitive high schools.

As a current parent of two (7th grade and 6th grade) here at Saint Andrew's, I can share that this is a dedicated educational community fostering student happiness, academic achievement, and character development. During the campus visit and admission events, I was truly amazed by how generously the parents and students at Saint Andrew`s shared their experiences with us. That wonderful experience really set Saint Andrew`s apart from the other schools we visited. My kids enjoyed their shadow visit very much and were both excited when they learned about the acceptance. The students were very welcoming and helpful when my kids started school here, which eased them into the new environment so smoothly.Even though we have only been here for one year so far, we can already clearly see that our kids have become better articulating their thoughts, how much they have enjoyed the school activities, and how they have challenged themselves to try new things for the opportunities that the school and teachers provided. I really appreciate how the teachers are willing to help and to support the students to become a better version of themselves. If I could turn back the clock, I wish I had found this school earlier for my kids. Therefore, I sincerely hope that you attend the campus visit or open house events, and see for yourself.

Saint Andrew's is an incredibly special school built upon an exemplary and dedicated faculty and staff. Surrounding that outstanding foundation is an entire community dedicated to the social, emotional and academic growth of each and every student. As an educator I understand, intimately, the importance of educating, cultivating and nurturing each and every child, each and everyday. For us, Saint Andrew's was the only choice.

Choosing a private school is a process with many parts to it. It also takes 18-24 months to complete. This collection of articles deals with the first part of the process in which you begin to look at private schools and what they offer.

Solid parent-teacher relationships have always been an important part of K-12 education. During this interminable pandemic, parent-teacher relationships have become even more important.
