Principal's Welcome

August 18, 2014

Dear Parents, Students, Teachers and Community,

Welcome back HIGHLANDERS! 

We are so excited to start the 14-15 school year.  Our first year brought a great deal of success.  From an academic perspective,  McAndrew students performed extremely well on STAAR.  In addition, we introduced  many activities that enhanced the learning environment and have worked diligently to create a family friendly school where parents and teachers work together to ensure that our children are prepared for college and the 21st century workforce. 

As we move through the new year, we will continue to challenge our students.  The state TEKS have changed and some skills have been redistributed to different grade levels and our teachers attended  extensive training sessions to prepare for the new curriculum.

Our doors are always open and your children are our first priority.
