    My family's experience at St. Andrew's Schools has been amazing. This review is based on my children's progress academically and socially during their two years at St. Andrew's Schools.

    The first few months of their first year at St. Andrew's Schools was hard since moving to O'ahu from a small neighbor island. As expected they struggled with entering a new school. Especially one in the middle of downtown Honolulu (I saw it as an opportunity!). However, it took less than 3 months of them being at St. Andrew's Schools that they began to show progress by making new friends, improving greatly on schoolwork and playing sports. Prior to them entering St. Andrew's Schools, they struggled with school work, achieving decent grades and was not interested in joining a sports team. Their progress from two years ago until now has proven to my husband and I that we made the right choice with St. Andrew's Schools. We are thankful to be a part of this amazing school community.

    St. Andrew's is a very small school, one with less than 600 students. Because of its small student body, I feel each of our students is able to connect on a deeper level with their teachers than those who go to larger schools. Through this relationship, we are able to learn more and achieve a higher standard of education. Compared to my old school, Wilson Elementary, many of my peers are also much friendlier. During my first year at St. Andrew's, I was mortified that I wouldn't have any friends, but everyone in my grade was very welcoming and made me feel as if I had always been apart of their community.
    I was enrolled since the 6th grade and since graduated. My experience at St. Andrews Priory was wonderful, I made alit of new friends and since it was an all girls school I could relate better without other distractions. The classes where smaller, so there was a great student to teacher ratio for better one on one lessons. The campus was also smaller since it was a private school therefore it was manageable.
