St. Andrew's School seems to be a positive influence on my son. He is adapting well to the culture and says that "he loves it there". I'm happy as long as he is. :-)

Just an amazing school with a caring faculty and outstanding academics. It is a wonderful experience for young men and women. I highly recommend this fine institution. Tad Roach is a fantastic headmaster. The facility is beautiful and the academic rigor is second to none.

St. Andrew's offers a unique community for students to learn and thrive in. The teachers ensure they become part of the greater community and at the same time bring students into their homes. They serve as mentors, athletic and life coaches, and most importantly phenomenal educators. St. Andrew's presents great opportunities for students to develop and self-mature away from their families. A St. Andrew's education provides students a well-rounded, best-in-class, and global-minded education.

Two of my three children and my husband attending this fine institution. They experienced academic challenges beyond their years. They left as caring and thoughtful citizens with the intellect to challenge conventional wisdom and ideas with their own.

My daughter's academic experience at St Andrew's can only be compared to my college classes. She loves all her classes and her teachers. The small size of the school means that she doesn't get as many sports choices as she would like, but she does get plenty of personalized attention.

A better social environment for boys than for girls. Also, it helps if you have money.

Two of my children have had the unique opportunity to be edcated in the St.Andrews' tradition. Only, when I am given the rare privledge of reading their written work am I in awe of the development of their critical thinking and writing skills. This school affords all their students the opportunity to achieve while being themselves regardless of race, color, creed or sexual orientation. They have managed to create a unique counter culter that challenges the student to rise to levels that are global in thinking and local and caring in application. Students are given opportunity so rare in this world, a caring and intellectually challenging, demanding educators, surrounded by extremely well educated educators the kind of whom are rare.

Totally awesome! My three children graduated from SAS with life changing exposure to the world of education, music, art, religion, athletics, and humanity. I was lucky enough to be a school nurse there for 3 years. Even my dogs loved it! I would do it all again, if possible.

Superb academics, caring faculty and staff, beautiful setting, serious athletic environment without focus on winning. This school continually produces top quality writers. My only concern is the tendency to be PC.

This is a wonderful school! I am a student, and I am about to start my fourth year at St. Andrew's. I love this place so much. It is a great enviromnet in which to place your child: everyone is so warm and friendly. The faculty are great, and really supportive. You can always count on a teacher to be willing to answer your questions, no matter when. There are tons of extracurricular activities at your fingertips, and it's just up to you to join up. Come over to Middletown and see for yourself!

I am a student of St. Andrew's School, and this school is amazing. Great academics and athletics along with warmth of the community are just few things that could be written here.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
