My child has attended St. Andrews since the first day of pre K 3. We had moved here from Dallas TX and were not impressed with the Madison public school system our older children attended. This school embraced our family and our child. He is now a 2nd grader- reads and does math better than my Jr. High student. We have been thrilled with St. Andrews and the loving, caring teachers and staff.
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.
