For over seventy years, St. Andrew’s Episcopal School has been a leader in elementary education on the Peninsula. We welcome children of all faiths to grow in mind, body, and spirit and strive to be an inclusive school community celebrating the diversity that each student brings. From our Pre-kindergarten classes through fifth grade, St. Andrew’s students are challenged by a rigorous academic program that includes the core academic subjects as well as music, art, French, Chinese, computer, physical education, science and library. Our daily chapel services nurture the spiritual development of each child. With passion and joy, our faculty and staff encourage each child to be his or her very best. We invite you to visit our school.





Meet our Head of School

It has been my privilege to wear several different hats during my tenure here at St. Andrew’s. Who knew eight years ago when I began searching for an elementary school for my own children, that it would eventually lead to my current position as Head of School. The opportunities given have allowed for a more global view of this wonderful school.

It seems like yesterday that my husband and I toured St. Andrew’s for the purpose of enrolling our own children here.  All parents want the BEST education for their children, especially during the foundation years. St. Andrew’s impressed me in such a way that I not only wanted my own children educated here, but I wanted to be a part of the faculty. Once our eldest was accepted into the program, I inquired about possible employment.

I became a part of the faculty the same year my daughter entered kindergarten. After becoming a part of the faculty it did not take me long to realize that St. Andrew’s does what it says it does every day.

“St. Andrews Episcopal School instilled in me the values of compassion and awareness from a young age.
“I wish every child could be fortunate enough to have the St. Andrew’s experience. I love that each child is known and celebrated for their strengths and unique qualities.
Our favorite thing about St. Andrew’s is the commitment of the teachers and staff to meet each child’s individual needs in helping them reach their potential.
“St. Andrew’s has been a big part of my entire life ~ I have been a church member since birth, I was a student from K – 5th grade, and now I am a church member, parent, and employee.
