  • Class of 2026 visits Mo Ranch

    The Class of 2026 had an awesome trip to Mo Ranch earlier this month. 77 students and 16 faculty members headed to the Texas Hill Country for three days of team building activities, swimming in the Guadalupe River, and great food! Students went through a variety of activities and challenges designed to push them out of their comfort zones and required them to work together to achieve various goals. From the Big Gulp and Mo Slide to canoeing and handling reptiles, the three days was packed with fun.

    The trip comes at a great time the for the 6th grade class as it allows an opportunity for our new students to get to know their classmates and teachers as they begin to settle into life at St. Andrew's. New bonds are formed among peers, and friendships are created and strengthened. The Mo Ranch trip is always one of the highlights of the Middle School experience, and this year was no different. Thanks to the Class of 2026 for such a fun trip!

  • 5th Grade Fall Play: Capture the Moon

    5th Grade actors are in full swing preparing for the Fall play, Capture the Moon, by Ernest Joselovitz and Harry Bagdasian.  The story is based on the traditional Yiddish tales of Chelm, spotlighting a poor, fantastical village's humorous attempt to solve a streetlighting problem by capturing the moon and harnessing moonlight. The Chelmites undertake a journey through the surrounding Christian countryside in search of the moon at its lowest point on the horizon, and through the process, come to understand difference and the power of imagination.

  • Upper Schoolers Wow Audience At Spring Awakening

    Please turn off your cell phones.” 

    Theatergoers have heard this refrain for years, but at St. Andrew’s Upper School’s recent production of Spring Awakening, audience members actually used their phones throughout the show to grapple with the show’s difficult themes in a new way. Inspired by techniques of Brazil’s Theatre of the Oppressed, director Rick Garcia’s addition to the show had audience members visit a dedicated website throughout touchpoints in the show. After certain scenes, the performance would pause and a question appeared on stage that dealt with a theme audiences had recently witnessed in the show. The questions revealed connections between the problems dealt with by the teenagers in Spring Awakening’s 19th-century Germany to the ones many teens struggle with today.
