We could not be happier with St. Andrews. Our child LOVES going to school everyday and we do not take that for granted! The teachers are wonderful and have made such a difference in our child's life. I love that the entire school is in sync with their message and teachings around character and being good citizens of the world. It is a lesson that starts in Pre-K and continues through 8th grade. We feel so lucky and blessed to be at St. Andrews!

Saint Andrews is a wonderful school that provides an environment for your child to grow and thrive! My favorite things about our school is the community of people, the focus on character and the whole child approach. My children love going to school and participate in a welcoming environment where they can feel comfortable to demonstrate their best. We have been at the school over 6 years and every year they improve and grow more close to being their best self! I can't say enough positive things about the school and encourage you to come see for yourself :-)

Saint Andrew's Episcopal School has been an excellent school and community for my child as a student and our family as a whole. Upon visiting the school for the first time, it was clear that there was something special: the feel of experienced and creative teachers in the classrooms, a well-organized and well-thought-out curriculum which caters to the WHOLE child, and an amazing character program which emphasizes pillars of character, such as trustworthiness, responsibility, honesty, etc. Once my child started his first year, the 'feel of something special' became a reality. It is truly something special. The community at Saint Andrew's is one that is unique in that you have to be on campus to feel the wonderful connection among parents, students, teachers and administrators. If you are considering the school, I suggest you schedule a visit and see for yourself. Saint Andrew's is outstanding in every way.

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

Good character is modeled, discussed and taught during advisories, in the classroom, in chapel and all around campus. The CHARACTER COUNTS! Six Pillars of Character (Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, Citizenship) are on display in the Outdoor Classroom and all around the school. Each of our Lower School teachers is trained in the Responsive Classroom approach to classroom management and discuss and develop class norms with the students.

The school did not do its job. It was terrible academically, and all other departments were lacking except PE and art.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
The school is hypocritical and disorganized in their punishment. They were unable to deal with mentally ill students and the teachers were poor role models




- a
Extremely disappointed with this school. Academics are lacking, especially compared to local public schools. Teacher quality varies greatly, many teachers were ineffective. Administration is extremely poor, with very little care to each child as an individual. Staff uses very nice language about how they care for each child, but in practice there's very little care or concern and unwillingness to put in any effort to help the children to thrive. Extremely high teacher turnover made this even worseworseit seemed like we were constantly getting emailed about yet another teacher leaving. Ultimately, after several years of having my children at this school, I withdrew my children. We have had a significantly better experience this hear at other schools.

Develops character: Strongly disagree

St. Andrew's Episcopal School has very effective admission office staff; very capable politician school heads; high turn-over rate (more than 50% within 1 year for the middle school teachers); some incapable and inexperienced teachers teaching key subjects (math, Spanish, English…), irresponsible management culture – after problems occur, they do nothing.
