SAES Kicks Off 13th Year!


On August 25 St.Andrew’s Episcopal School began our thirteenth school year. With the help of many parents, board members, and faculty, the school continues to grow and yet maintain a very special culture of nurturing and caring for the child in a Montessori environment. 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our faculty and staff:

- Our Toddler I class is led by Michelle Balch and assisted by Mari Matthews and Nick Curtis. 
- Toddler II is led by Christa Wilson and assisted by Monica Chapa.
- Our Early Childhood environment is led by Martha Pena and co-taught with Tuan Vu. Edith Rivera assists both teachers. 
- Maryuri Duran functions in the very important role of Business Manager, keeping our records up to date and making sure we have what we need each day.
- Michelle Hlavenka is our Director of Admissions and Marketing. 

We work together as a team to create an environment that nurtures and enriches the children and their families. Come by and see what a very special place SAES is and, how much fun we are having in our Montessori community!

St. Andrew’s is accredited by the Southwest Association of Episcopal Schools and is a Member of the American Montessori Association. Parents interested in admission to the school may contact the main office at standre or 713-861-2954. We hold small group tours each month and accept applications and enroll year-round.
