My daughter is in her third year at this school. She had to start with speech therapy along with other help in math and spelling. The school did a great job with her. If you have any children with special needs this is a great school to go to. The staff and admin. are very friendly and kind. The principal is great with the kids also!

Great teachers and administrators with a lot of community involvement. The school offers a number of programs to meet every student's needs and interests. The school is new (just 2 years old) so the students are involved in building the schools identity. Andrews has a multicultural environment, with students from all over the world. It provides a great environment for our kids. We considered every option for our child including private school and homeschool and feel we made the best choice for our child by selecting Andrews.
