St. Andrew's Scots School aims to graduate responsible citizens committed to serving Argentina and contributing to its equitable development through a well-balanced, bilingual education which meets high international standards and fosters a joy for learning.
Pupils are taught to inquire deeply, work responsibly and care for others, themselves and the environment. We build their character in a diverse and respectful community, expecting high standards of discipline and commitment, supporting them to reach their full potential and nurturing their intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual dimensions.
The ethic and moral foundations of St. Andrew's Scots School are anchored in its Presbyterian heritage, rooted in the Sacred Scriptures.
I sent my three sons to St. Andrew’s, it is definitely one of the best schools in Buenos Aires. Currently the school is in a process of moving its Kindergarten and Primary Schools to a recently acquired approximately 17 hectare “Campus San Andrés” , located on the Calle Uruguay close to the Panamericana Highway at the Camino Bancalari exit .
I attended this very fine school many decades ago when I lived just down the block. The lovely residential homes have since been torn down and have been replaced by high rise apartment buildings which is a pity.
I lasted only a few months at St. Andrew's because I had transferred from Moses Brown School, a New England prep school which followed the U.S. curriculum, which was, as I discovered to my dismay, at least a year behind St. Andrews. Also, I wasn't used to their strict discipline in everything.
However, I gave St. Andrews a superior rating because even though I wasn't properly prepared, the school itself was outstanding.
Long story short, I switched to the American School and I did just fine. Looking back, I have to admit that it was probably a step down to go to the American School.
