School was not good for my child. Teacher yelled most of the time. Seemed like they were not trained. More emphasis on religion than academics. My child learned more at home than in the classroom. Parent association was very active, but if you are not a part of the parish, then forget about it. School made you feel like an outsider paying higher tuition and getting treated less than favorable to others that are associated with the church.

I am an alumni of St. Andrew and chose to send my children there as well. The teachers are dedicated, highly skilled and creative and make learning fun. The principal is hands on and supportive of his staff and students alike. The families are welcoming and the community is warm and friendly. We couldn't have picked a better school for our children.

In my opinion Saint Andrew school is one of the best. Both in academics and social tolerence and exceptance. The teachers are dedicated, and the students proud of the school. Hard to turn out a bad kid from this school. The new principle is as dedicated as they come, his pride and values show everywhere.

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.
