At Saint Andrew's Episcopal School we believe the education of children must become a partnership between teachers and parents. It is our expectation that the major responsibility for academic life and work lies with the students themselves, but we recognize that an essential contribution is made by parents who wholeheartedly support teachers and students in the acquisition of an outstanding education.
In order that Saint Andrew's Episcopal School develops as fully as possible the intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social capabilities of each pupil, it is essential that parents take an interest in the activities that contribute to a well-rounded educational experience. Significant parent-participation parts of the educational program are the scheduled conferences with parents of each student, as well as conferences held at other times as needed. Parent conferences are planned to ensure each student's continued growth and success.
As the academic year progresses, teachers may request specific assistance from parents with class programs and activities. The administration also provides opportunities for parental involvement in the life of the school. All parents are members of the Parents' Association, which encourages and organizes parent participation in the educational and social activities at the school. It works with the administration toward the development and support of the school's programs. We hope that parents will respond to the needs of their children and the school, so that together we -- the Saint Andrew's community -- may experience growth through community efforts.
