I moved my child here from another ISAS school in New Orleans. WOW! What a great school. The academics are great and the teachers are top notch. I am so glad we made the move. I agree with the other review that this must be a hidden jewel.

We transferred to St. Andrew's this year. This school has exceeded our expectations. The combination of great academics with the most nurturing environment I've ever encountered makes this school shine above the rest. I think it must be a hidden gem. The transition was very easy for our child. He now LOVES his school and takes great pride in being a St. Andrew's student. Our entire family was welcomed by the school community. The head master is a forward thinker and an innovator. Your student will be valued as an individual, while receiving an excellent education. I cannot say enough about this wonderful school.

Small classes, caring teachers, all the up-to-date learning boards and computers that children love. Was a wonderful school when my daughter and then my grand-daughter went to school.

The environment is nurturing at St. Andrew's, and each child is seen as having gifts that are encouraged and developed. Creativity thrives at this school! As a teacher, I believe in tailoring the curriculum to each class of students, allowing their personalities, interests, and needs help shape what research we do and what field trips we take. I have never felt such support from parents and administration in my efforts as I do at St. Andrew's. I love it!

My son has attended since 3rd grade and this year, 6th grade is starting off great. Small class size and a warm a nurturing environment. He's made lots of friends & they actually get to know each other! Field trips such a a jewelry factory owned by one of the student's family was amazing. They met the artists, had hands on with gems and then talked about how these gems were created geologically, how it affects the environment,cultural aspects and more. SAES nutures and grows confident, moral wise students who love learning and find wisdom in every part of life. Activities are open to all students in an environment that encourages trying. Shy kids become more confident and bold kids learn to be helpful w/their gifts. Great learning experience

My children attended St. Andrew's for their elementary school. Both children are doing very well in their high schools and earning honor roll status. St. Andrew's is an excellent school for academics. The teachers and staff are devoted to providing for each child's educational needs.

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.
