I have two children at Annistown, one of which just graduated from 5th grade. I am very pleased with Annistown, the leadership and educational offerings. I am an involved parent, which I think is very important as well, otherwise, some issues may not get addressed. In some instances, parent involvement needs to improve (ex. Room Reps). The same parents are always involved and volunteering. I appreciate that the teachers are willing to communicate, offer assistance, and identify strengths and/or weaknesses in order to encourage and strive for excellence!

Annistown Elementary has been a great Kindergarten and Second Grade experience for my children. They have learned relevent information, participated in great programs and bring home great works of art! Most certainly they deserve a higher score than 6, the faculty and staff do a wonderful, caring job.
