St. Andrew’s School for Pre-K3 through Grade 12 on Wilmington Island, Savannah

St. Andrew's School Savannah Private Schools on the Georgia Coast St. Andrew’s School 7th and 8th grade students headed back to the beach recently but just to get their feet wet. The students were getting a hands-on lesson identifying sea life and learning about the coastal environment. After a morning of research and preparation, these 78 students made the short trip to Tybee to work with counselors from the Burton 4-H Center.

“Our students were surf detectives today on Tybee Island, exploring their own coastal back yard,” said Jesse Lazzuri, Head of the Middle School. “We are fortunate to be so close to the coast so it makes sense to take advantage of this unique opportunity.”

The experience offered the Middle School students a distinctive approach to learning about sea life and the environment. They were able to kick-off their shoes and pull a seine net through the waves. After each tow, the students observed, identified and discussed their catch that included ghost crabs, blue crabs, shrimp, bumper fish and more. The recent field trip illustrates the school’s commitment to experiential learning and the application of concepts.

“We had a great time on the beach today,” said Jacob Boyd, 8th grader. “This was a cool way to learn about the different creatures that are swimming around our feet.”
