Established in 2001, St. Andrew's Episcopal School is a Montessori program for children from age 12 months through 5 years. Offering certified, trained, and expereienced Montessori teachers, our classrooms are communities of children and our school is a community of families, all of which are dedicated to the goal of allowing each child not only to learn but also to experience the joy of learning - for it is from experience that a child creates knowledge.
Located in the historic Houston Heights, St. Andrew's Episcopal School is a ministry of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church and is committed to nurturing the growth of both the child and the family.
The mission of St. Andrew's Episcopal School is to enrich children's lives through respectful exploration of spiritual, cognitive, physical and creative learning while nurturing the environment, the community, the family, and the child.
Our Episcopal Montessori school holds up the values that the two traditions share:
A Questioning Curiosity
Open Minds and Hearts
An Inviting, Inclusive Community
And all in the context of Love
The Reverend Barbara Lewis
