School Reviews

I am a parent of a graduating 8th grader and a 5th grader, both of whom have been at this school since kindergarten. I couldn't be more pleased with the academic preparedness, quality of education, amazing and attentive faculty and staff, and parental community who come to feel more like family. Beyond a faith-based education, our girls have received important moral and spiritual guidance that will no doubt serve them well throughout the rest of their lives. Always striving to remain relevant and current with our ever-changing technology and social needs, St. Andrew is just doing it right! Would compete comfortably with any Northern private school for anyone new to the area.
