My daughter has attended St. Andrew since Pre-K and is now about to finish the 1st grade. Her first 2 years were good; the amount of information she learned was phenomenal. She is reading at a 3rd grade level and doing great in all subjects. Unfortunately we are not returning because my daughter has
... Read more been bullied by an older student on several occasions and as a parent I feel the school is not doing enough to prevent it from reoccuring. So overall, if the dress code were a little more lenient (my daughter was forced to remove her earrings that she had been wearing for 2+ yrs because her new teacher's preference was different than prior teachers; also the uniforms are very expensive and bargain [matching] substitutes are not allowed) and there wasn't the bully issue... we would be returning my daughter as a student. Bullying is not okay in our home and I would be contradicting what we've taught her if we continue sending her to a school that is not doing more to protect her and make her feel that it won't happen again. If you choose this school... big piece of advise is LISTEN to your CHILD when he/she tells you about problems with other students or teachers! Read less

HORRIBLE SCHOOL. 3 different teachers physically hit and pushed my child at this school. Also, they fit 30-35 kids in 1 classroom. Your child does not get much attention. It's not about the St. Andrew Family getting bigger, its about your child getting less attention and the school making more money;

Even in a public school your child will learn more than St. Andrew, Why? because Public schools teacher-student ratio is less than 19 children per class and their curriculum are much more advance. Believe it when your children tell you they don't like St. Andrew; they tell you that for a reason! Read less

My child will be entering her 4th year at St. Andrew. We have been nothing but pleased with the teaching staff.

St. Andrew is safe, has a fantastic academic program in all grades, quality teachers, and has a nice compliment of extracurricular activities. The parents are supportive, and the school community feels like 'home' and a 'family'.

The academic programs need to be improved as the students are falling behind the public school students. In addition there is a high teacher turnover rate (6 left this year in the middle of the year!) as well as a high family turnover rate. The area has went down in the past few years.
