We visited St. Andrews Episcopal school during a fun filled school spirit showdown with Germantown. Students, teachers and faculty all got in on the competition.
The poll is ongoing and will draw to an end Wednesday at noon. St Andrews showed no signs of slowing down or accepting second place.
We visited with the Winter Choir as they belted some traditional holiday tunes. Choir teacher Libby Walden also shared a personal story of the importance of what the students mean to her, and why they are an important part of her life.
Founded in 1947 as St. Andrews Episcopal day School serving 45 students grades 1-4, the purpose of opening its doors was to emphasize Christian values in a academic setting as well as provide individual attention to each student.
During the time of the tumultuous Civil Rights movement St. Andrews excelled as a private academy geared towards equality and the acceptance of all students regardless of race, sex, or religion.
The school continues to thrive on diversity as well as high academic achievement.
