PART 1 : School may seem as a nice caring environment but trust me it's a facade. It lures in and fools the families of younger children and can even fool the parents. Most of the teachers are unfair, even to other teachers. If you do something Mrs. O'niell or that a teacher does not like it is automatically disrespectful. An explanation from the child is not even allowed to be spoken. A whole class is punished for one student it not snitching. If you have a phone and a student puts it in the phone box it most likely will be looked through if there is no password. I HIGHLY RECCOMEND PUTTING A SIM LOCK ON. If phone is confiscated it will not be returned for 24 hours. Be sure to read handbook thoroughly because it states that they are not responsible for electronics. Mrs. O'Neill is not approachable and takes everything personal instead of professional. She's quick to put in her personal feelings into a conflict. PLEASE PARENTS DO NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING THE TEACHERS SAY OR THAT SHE SAYS BECAUSE SHE IS THE PRINCIPAL.
St. Andrew's is a wonderful, caring environment with very high educational standards. My children are thriving there, socially and academically. We have been so pleased with the education they are receiving that my wife and I have chosen to keep them at St.Andrews, even after we have moved to Stratford CT.
My son attends this school and I also attended this school when I was younger. It's a great learning environment and the class room sizes are small enough for the teachers to pay attention to all the students needs. The school lunches are even better then the normal public school lunches. I would defiantly recommend St. Andrews School.
My son attends here. Very helpful and understanding teachers. Small class sizes. After school programs are most helpful. School needs to encourage it's teachers, students and their families to attend the churches and Knights Of Columbus functions more often. The church and the Knights need that participation from it's community. It's all done for the children, to make it a better place for all who go there.
