My children have just the right amount of homework. They have a little review to do most evenings that pertains to work completed in the classroom during the day. It helps my children learn "the basics," how to organize their materials, and a little responsibility.
St. Andrews Lutheran School in Park Ridge has been a huge blessing for our family. The principal, teachers, and staff are dedicated and very attentive to students. My children love the choral music program and enjoyed being in the all school musical last year (held every other year). My husband and I love the small, close-knit community at St. Andrews, the Christian perspective, the extra attention our children get from small class sizes, and that standardized testing is not a major focus. Wonderful school!
St. Andrews is a blessing to our children's educational, emotional, and spiritual needs. The principal and assistant principal are outgoing and care deeply about their students. The preschool program is booming and their director continues to offer and open new programs. We started our children with preschool at St. Andrews and now they are in elementary and jr. high! Praising God for being able to send my children to this private school!
St. Andrews is a wonderful school! We came to the school last year after leaving another private school and the difference is night and day. The teachers are attentive to each student, the Principal is very engaged and the religious aspect is second to none! The newly remodeled library is outstanding along with the computer lab. Our family is looking forward to many more happy years here.
Great PreK teacher. Not so good after that. Some academic issues such as middle grade teaching of evolution as a myth and a slow math curriculum. Felt more rigor (in addition to/beyond text book) could have been utilized, especially with such small class sizes. Middle grades teacher correcting student at Geography Bee about Shakespeare's birthplace, "England is not a country. Shakespeare was born in the country of UK." Busy work word searches for homework. Not impressed. Not returning.
