Lower School Learning Center
The Lower School Learning Center strives to create an environment that embraces the diversity of its learners and empowers them to realize their potential. The Center is staffed by a full-time Learning Facilitator, a full-time Reading Specialist, and two part-time Learning Facilitators. This team provides instructional assistance to students with learning needs and partners with parents, faculty, and other professionals to administer services which enhance learning and academic progress.
With clinics on both campuses, our school nurses maintain cumulative health records on all students and serve as a resource for faculty and staff on medical needs. Nurses see students based on teacher referrals, administer daily medications, monitor acute and chronic conditions within the school setting, help devise plans with medical conditions that may impact the school day, relay guidance as needed on student medical conditions, provide health instruction in classrooms, and coordinate medical needs when students go off campus. Our nurses also work with our greater Student Support Services teams to help recognize students who may need support.
Health and Fitness
St. Andrew's works to continually support the physical well-being of each student by introducing skills, strategies, and information to encourage long-term healthy life-style choices. Using multi-faceted and holistic approaches, students participate in an age-appropriate fitness curriculum that addresses growth and development and focuses on taking care of their bodies and minds. The program is organized by division and is designed to improve aerobic and anaerobic fitness, musculoskeletal fitness, and flexibility. In Lower School, the students improve their understanding of fitness and their motor development through cooperative games and other activities.
