"If you asked me what the perfect school would entail, I would tell you it must have a sense of community, challenging academics, strong athletics, and a creative art & theater program. What I just described is Saint Andrew’s School. Two years ago, we decided to relocate from Pennsylvania to Florida, and we visited a number of schools in South Florida. From the moment we arrived on Saint Andrew's campus, there was no other place my children wanted to be. There was an energy on the campus of excitement, both from the faculty and students. They were genuinely happy and proud of their programs and campus life. There was nothing more we wanted than to feel that sense of community for our family.
My kids transitioned into Saint Andrew's at odd years, 8th and 10th, on top of dealing with the pandemic. Despite the new “norm,” my children seamlessly transitioned into Middle School and Upper School with ease. The entire Saint Andrew's community was welcoming, supportive, and positive. The school's safety protocols gave us a comfort level that allowed the children to attend school in person. This also provided them with some normalcy in unprecedented times.
My daughter and son are now both in the Upper School. They are active in the sports and theater programs. They are experiencing freedoms and navigating being a High School freshman and junior. Their teachers are challenging them to be self-advocates but also supporting them in mind, body, and spirit. They are truly thriving! As for my husband and I, we could not be happier with the education and support they are receiving. The learning center has provided more than enough accommodations for our daughter, who has a few learning challenges. The college counselors are preparing her for her next steps with the college application process. Our son is living his best life, meeting new grade 9 students, and being a proud member of Scots football.
It’s every parent's wish to find that perfect fit for their children. We have definitely found that with Saint Andrew’s School and the community."
