St. Andrew's School Reviews

I am an alum and also a current parent. We looked at all the top schools. We did not want a place with 25% rich foreign students who isolate themselves, nor a pressure cooker. We wanted a home away from home where the ethical base and expectations are very high, and where the school delivers on superb academics and a tolerant culture.

Importantly, about half the students at SAS are on full or close-to-full scholarships; as parents who are at the upper income end of the spectrum, we definitely did not want our children going to a place full of spoiled, entitled, rich jerks, and that aspect is VERY difficult to find elsewhere.

SAS grads tend to be very well adjusted socially, mature, good critical thinkers and writers, and very well prepared academically, without being cocky.

it really should be a 4.5
SAS is a very liberal place with liberal teachers preaching liberal ideologies. As the school advocates acceptance, it neglects accepting different world views. The school culture otherwise is arguably the best in the country, definitely in the state of Delaware.
Lots of opportunities. If you are looking for small schools with less competition, SAS is the place to go.
school headmaster wants to place the school as a vanguard in confronting drugs/alcohol/hook-up culture. There is 100% no drugs and alcohol, and the school is safe at all times.
The main reason i give a 4 is that the school's communication is a total mess... no communication with parents at al.... sad!
Besides that, a great school is you want to pursue liberal arts/humanities in college
St. Andrew's provides a unique boarding school experience. All who attend feel an extremely welcoming sense of community. Our school focuses on addressing and discussing the crucial topics of today, from LGBTQ rights to racism to politics. The education, community, and overall experience at St. Andrew's will properly prepare one for college and beyond.
