I love Anderson Elementary School because they teachers and staff truly care about the safety and well being of our students. I am both a parent and member of the teaching staff and I have been for 18 years. My children have been nurtured and given the tools they will need to become successful adults.

I had family go through Anderson Elementary and I see the kind of top notch education the school gives, even with limited financial resources.

The staff at Anderson Elementary have a solid, positive influence in my child's life. When we see teachers or staff memebers, either in or away from the school, they always call her by name. With a minimal budget the educators here have created a community were learning and citizenship are both exciting and rewarding.
