This is the top school in the state of Mississippi.It is strong academically and extracurricularly with great parent support. The Head of School is a tremendous leader with a national reputation. If you want the best school in Jackson, Mississippi this is it!

The lower school is an excellent choice for your kids. The teachers are warm and caring and the environment is the best you'll find in the area for learning. There are computers and many activities that the students participate in on a regular basis. The art and music programs are top-notch and allow young minds the room to be as creative as they want.

I have four children at St. Andrews. I can't think of another school that challenges and stimulates thought the way St. Andrews does. The social climate is not intimidating. Our children have good friends from all walks of life, from many races and many cultures. The teachers are loving, firm but fair, and open to criticism. I am pleased with the choice we made when we returned to Jackson.

This is an excellent school, with a nurturing environment, and a wonderful environment. Though Episcopal, the school is very open to other religions & encourages children to share their religious & cultural traditions with other students. Weekly chapel, to which parents are invited, encourages parental involvement. May Day is a schoolwide performance, each grade does a routine, the finale is the 4th graders dance around the May Pole; this is truly special & a rite of passage from the lower to the upper school.

I have two children at this school and it is wonderful. The teachers and administration are fantastic. Both of my children are academically challenged. I have no complaints!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
