Our teachers inspire our students, instill a love of learning, and bring extraordinary life and perspective into the classroom. They are individually celebrated for their wonderful uniqueness, incredible talent, and wealth of experiences. Our faculty - our extended family - makes St. Andrew's an exceptional place to be.
Many of our faculty members have advanced degrees from universities all over the world, but an advanced education is not all we seek in a candidate. We believe that life experiences in the world outside the classroom, a thirst to continue learning, and an undeniable love of teaching are equally important in being a successful and inspiring educator.
One thing that draws so many faculty members to St. Andrew's is our flexible curriculum. We meet and exceed curriculum goals needed to advance to the next grade level - and eventually to college - but we leave room for teachers to incorporate subjects they are particularly knowledgeable in or passionate about. This makes for a richer learning experience and allows teachers to integrate their own life experiences - from growing up in a foreign country to working in a particular industry - into the classroom. St. Andrew's believes that learning not only comes from lectures and books, but also by applying real world examples and experiences into each lesson.
We believe that our faculty should benefit from new learning opportunities and experiences, too, and support for continuing education is made available to our St. Andrew's teachers. Every school year, teachers are encouraged to apply for faculty enrichment grants provided through the Parents' Council. Over the years, teachers have traveled throughout the United States and abroad bringing back all the newest teaching methods, ideas for speakers and class projects, updated resources, and above all, new ways to make St. Andrew's the best school it can be.
