I say, couldn't be more happier this year. Of all years being at this school, we are having such a great change of pace. More leadership, more stability. yes, every school has their kinks, but, honestly what school doesn't. When it comes to a Religious school and you have faith, you have to believe in FAITH, HOPE that it will come together , not in our time, but in the good LORDS time. He's incharge. Everything comes together when the whole community prays. We have many things to still offer, but you have to come to our school for that information to get the full effect of it. We have such great Administration, basically , teachers and faculty. Each one doing their job. Nothing more to say, then to check us out. Parent involvement is great, unbelievable. A loving and caring school.
Called main # asking for information on the school, woman said, "this is not a good time" and hung up on me. I will not be calling back.
BEST SCHOOL ....SECOND TO NONE!. My family moved here from up north and we couldn't have found a better school to call our home. Our two children have fit right in. This is not a school but a family. The teachers are awesome and so kind, caring, young, energetic and knowledgeable. I love all the afterschool activities for my kids and all the family outings to meet the other families. The Principal is great and he exudes Catholic Values. If you want not just a school but an environment of true faith and Catholic Values, this is for you. I highly recommnd this school to all families.
Phenomenal School from top to bottom. The principal is a take charge guy and has done wonders. The teachers are new, young, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and caring Catholic teachers. The students are well behaved and well mannered. The parents are generous and giving. I cannot say enough about the education my children are getting at the school. The curriculum is fully integrated and the technology is the latest for educational classroom. The afterschool enrichment programs are also well rounded and challenging and fun for the kids. This is not a school it is one big family. Stop by and see what everyone is talking about.
Five stars!! My two children are thriving at this school. The teachers are excellent, the principal leadership is outstanding and they have a great team with wonderful committed parents. This Catholic school has mass once a week on Wednesday and the children participate in the choir and also serve as lectors and ushers. Science Fair, talent show, television studio, after-school golf program, band, cheerleading, sports, chess club, Latin club, culinary club and more are offered here. There is something for everyone.
OK!!! Major overhaul and long over due. For the first time in 5 years there is a sense hope and real change. Catholics acting like catholics. There is true leadership going on and it is inspiring. The school has been going through a rebirth. The school has introduced virtual classrooms and the latest technology. Yes there were some tranisitional problems. I am happy to say those problems were worked out and the children are ingaged academically. The children have both a virtual classroom and a teacher in their classroom to help enrich their learning experience. All advanced math classes are taught by our #1 teacher of the year. Another huge improvement this year is a comprensive recess program was introduced for all grades k-8. The school has made so many improvements and I am proud to send my children to St. Andrew Catholic School. I am also proud to be part of the positive change. God bless our school and our children.
Oustanding academics, excellent teachers, loving environment, committed parents and Catholic values make for a winning environment for the children. I'm impressed with the new administration and new teachers. When some of the teachers left to follow their husband's to new jobs in different states, the administration acted quickly to replace them with excellent educators. In addition, the administration was compassionate toward the teachers who wanted to be with their families and let them break their contracts in order to move wtith their husbands. The new teachers got right to work not only teaching excellent academics but sponsoring clubs and helping the children prepare for the science fair. The new language arts teacher sponsored a Latin Club and our children are learning Latin after school. All we had to do was buy the book! My one son is on the track team and is being coached by excellent parent volunteers who were track stars themselves. The commitment of the parents here is phenominal and there is a real family atmosphere.
GREAT CARNIVAL..., but horrible school. The school is going to online classes, guess we don't need actual teachers anymore........ IOWA test scores are very very low, enrollment is way down, no structure. School is a joke. They have an advanced math class that is an online program anyone can get into for a small fee, school charges way above that and says it has advanced math....
The kids are amazing, but there is something wrong witht he administration when they can't keep teachers. This place is like a revolving door. The administrations seems to keep starting over.
This is a our first year at the school and we are very satisfied with the curriculum and the teachers are great. The offer Spanish, Music, and Computer even in Kindergarten. Come join the family at St. Andrew's School.
Wow, I just attended their brand new ,latest technology digital classrooms and I can say these will really enhance my children's learning. This is cutting edge education. I am really excited about this and the curriculum attached to it. Definitely a huge positive. Couple that with warm and caring teachers who are so hands on, I can see why my children have always scored extremely high on their IOWA's. Thanks St. Andrew!
Two of our three children attend this school and our youngest will start next year. We couldn't ask for a better school for our children. The Catholic enviroment, love, care, disipline and high academic standards along with excellent teachers and staff make this school a wonderful experience for both children and parents.
My two children started this year. We have come from another private school and I am amazed at what the school has to offer. The teachers are caring and have really challenged my children. I am glad I made the move. The other parents are real friendly. I would highly reccomend
I thought it was a 'big' school. I'm disappointed by the art of teaching, financial pressure received in all kind during every day school, therefore the parents involvement is so high.
I have two children that go to St.Andrew & we are very happy. I have seen a noted improvement in leadership & a positive growth in technology that I feel will prepare our children for the future. The music and media programs are great. The teachers & families make the school warm & caring.
We love the school and Pre-school! My children are very happy ! Every morning when we drop off our children we have the security that they are in a loving and caring place, and that they are learning and having fun.
St. Andrew is a terrific school, which offers both academic and spiritual enrichment. I credit the school with providing a safe and comfortable learning environment for my children. Recent improvements include more emphasis on digital learning with upgraded computer technology.
Excellent school with a loving environement and fabulous academics. I have had four children attend here. My two youngest are thriving there now. Clean, excellent facilities and awesome computer classes. The basketball court is a recent addition and is very nice. A nice family school.
My first year for my son. I love the uniforms and my son knowing his prayers,But since,my son has attended the school, they seem to be short on school supplies,but thats for just preschool, they always asking the parents to bring supplies.They also seem very strict,like they want them perfect.
My son is in first grade and I found this school to have good academic levels comparing to other schools, they get parents involved in all different aspects of the students everyday homework and social activities as well
