Hello St. Andrew Friends and Families,
It is my pleasure to welcome you and your child to our St. Andrew School family. We are a Title 1 school for students with disabilities and our commitment is to helping our students achieve academic, social and emotional growth. Through our PAWS program our students learn to be successful. Your participation and support of our program are the keys to helping your child achieve their greatest potential.
I encourage you to be a part of our School Advisory Council, where you can support and help guide us in developing programs and policies, and have input in guiding the general direction of the school. Please refer to daily home notes, parent portal, monthly newsletters and ClassDojo for information on meetings and school wide events. We incorporate a character education program at St. Andrew School called Core Essentials. Each month, we have a Big Idea "Word of the Month'' and a corresponding animal and color.
I look forward to working with you to continue the vision and traditions that make St. Andrew School such an incredible, student-centered school focused on growing our students academically, socially and emotionally.
Mission: The mission of St. Andrew School, in partnership with our families and the community, is a commitment to provide a safe learning environment that promotes each child’s social/emotional and academic development through positive behavioral supports and research-based practices. All students are provided opportunities to develop and achieve according to their own strengths in preparation for integration into the least restrictive educational and social setting.
Vision: St. Andrew School will provide a standard of excellence and positive supports in a safe environment where all students can achieve their full potential in academic, behavioral, and character development.
