“Saint Andrew School has strong academics and teaches children values they need to grow and be a successful person!” -Sally Boyer-Myers
"I cannot speak highly enough of our kids' teachers and Ms. Martin during the pandemic. While many public schools in the area floundered for weeks, St. Andrew School was back up and running full-speed online in just three days. Our kids' teachers succeeded in recreating the in-class experience through video-conference classes during coronavirus. Our kids missed seeing their teachers and friends in person but their education was not negatively affected. As I was working from home too, I saw it every day." - Ken Mulligan
"My granddaughter started Kindergarten last year at St. Andrew School. When we were going through tough times, Principal Martin stepped right up. The support from school and parents was overwhelming, and I will never forget the love and support given to my granddaughter. Saint Andrew School is a true family." - Eileen Doman
"As a parent of a child who has attended St. Andrews School from Kindergarten through fourth grade, we have been truly blessed every year we have attended. St. Andrews has provided high-quality education in an environment where each student receives personal attention to achieve personal, educational and communal goals as well as fostering love, faith and community of experience. I can't say enough about the commitment, dedication and skill of St. Andrews' teachers, staff and parish who have gone far and above any expectation in providing continuing classes and support for students in a time of pandemic and uncertainty. The sports team and mascot are very aptly named. Go Saints Go. I can hardly imagine teachers and administrators more dedicated and effective than those of St. Andrew School during Covid-19." - Nath Paskert
