My daughter and I recently relocated to Tampa, Florida from Georgia, and upon moving, considered Anderson Elementary and Ballast Point Elementary School- both in which were rated very highly. We toured both schools and felt that Anderson would be the best fit for her. I have been very pleased thus far with her teacher (Kindergarten) and with the after school program provided by the YMCA. She is being challenged academically and I have seen a lot of progress in the past few months. Her teacher is helpful, communicative, and sets clear expectations for all of the students. We are so happy we chose Anderson, as it has been a great fit for her so far!

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
My daughter was never given homework before we attended Anderson (she is in Kindergarten); however, it has seemed to be effective in reinforcing concepts learned in class and she is now able to generalize concepts more quickly.


Develops character: Strongly disagree

The principal's strong leadership reflects in the teachers that my kids have been taught by.

Ms. Gadsden is awesome principal. I feel she has helped the school with fundraisers and participation. Ms. McHugh is an incredible teacher. She kept the parents informed to the kids' progress and she truly cared about the kids! Ms. Anderson and Ms. Cosgrove were good teachers too. I love this school and I look forward to seeing it increase to an A school!!

My child has been here since first grade and I absolutely love the family feel at Anderson. The administration and staff go above and beyond to make sure my child is successful. I love all of the family activities that the school and the PTA put on for the kids. The weekly phone call messages from Mrs. Gadson are nice reminders about what is going on in the school. Anderson is truly a hidden gem in South Tampa.

This school continues too go downhill. The students may work hard to keep their grades up, but the communication from the school is lacking. The new principal is extremely unprofessional and rude. What else would you expect the teachers to act like?



- a
The school is fine as long as you have the right teacher. 5th grade teacher to pray your kid gets: Laduke or Jeffers. If you get the other one...your child is not crazy! Someone is not operating at full speed!



- a
excellent school and teachers and good environment my child love school every day she learn something new.




- a
Anderson Elementary is a nurturing, well managed campus with caring and talented teachers. Can consider ourselves fortunate to live in the school boundries.



- a
Anderson is a great school with teachers who are compassionate, yet hold the children accountable. Teachers differentiate to meet the needs of all learning styles and abilities. I find it interesting that there are very few comments, representing less than .03% of the school population. Anderson has always been a hidden gem in South Tampa. Keep up the good work!
