This school has a extensive history of bullying. EXTENSIVE. I am not a disgruntled parent but a FORMER STUDENT, who was a victim of merciless cruelty at the hands of my fellow classmates, literally being spit at, no exaggeration, while teachers, administrators looked on and did NOTHING. This school has
... Read more always been dominated by cliques of parents that are very involved with the parish, and as in my case, these were the parents of the offenders, the worst bullies. Don't waste you money on tuition at the substandard school when public schools in the area are far superior. Unlike the public schools they are accountable only to themselves which allows for bad behavior to run rampant. Read less

It's a shame that one or two disgruntled parents are the only ones choosing to comment on Saint Andrew, but that is usually the way. We are into our second year at Saint Andrew, and, although the actual building may not be in the best condition, the faculty, high-parent involvement, and various after
... Read more school activities offered, more than make up for it. The faculty work wonders in the classroom and go much further than just teaching academics; they teach morales, discipline and responsibility, something that can't be found at public school. The newer faculty are also bringing new elements and further bettering the school. These few allowed words aren't enough to describe the wonders of the principal, Mrs. Hanna. She is so invested in the school, cares so much, and her door is always open. She even checks and signs every test graded so she knows what's going on in her school with both students and faculty. She is funny, charismatic, and so much more. Not only does the school have a STELLAR music program and various sports teams, they also have a very reasonably priced morning and after school program. This school really cannot be beat! Read less

I've seen kids get picked on because they can't speak right. It happens in the classroom right in front of the teacher. The teacher simply ignores it.

This is a school with a lengthy history of bullying. Years and years of it. The teachers look the other way, therefore send a message of "it is acceptable to treat others this way."
