“I strongly recommend St. Andrews as an excellent school that teaches a rigorous academic curriculum within a caring and fun environment.”
“My son recently completed a year at St. Andrews. He claims that it is “the best school in the world” and I would have to agree that it must be one of the best. Before becoming a year 1 student at St. Andrews, my son could recognize most of the letters but was unable to read. Within a week at St. Andrews his attitude had changed and within a month he was reading simple books. At the end of the year he had progressed to reading above the expected reading level for his age. Academically this typifies St. Andrews. The teaching staff are knowledgeable and thorough and work with parents to bring children up to expected levels in all core subjects. This rigorous academic curriculum is integrated into an atmosphere where children barely notice that they are learning. Cooking classes, excursions and topic activities complement the academic work so that every day is not only a learning experience, it is fun.”
“I am so happy to be at such a lovely, warm school with such fabulous staff and parents and confident kids.”
