As a former staff member, I cannot say enough great things about the principal. She is 1000 percent dedicated. Being a former principal myself, I know the demands of the job. She is clearly the best principal I have ever known.

I honestly have to say that I have had a great experience in the Papillion-LaVista School District. My son attended Anderson Grove Elementary and was well prepared for middle school. As a result he was ready for advanced math placement. Consequently, when he made his way to Papillion South High School he was ready for Honors and AP classes. I'm proud to say that he is going into his Senior year and scored a 33 on his ACT. All thanks to the education he received each step of the way in this District. Many thanks!

As a former staff member of Anderson Grove, I cannot tell you how much this entire staff cares about each and every child who attends. The school is truly a family community - working together to encourage growth academically and socially. The example starts with the principal and is modeled throughout the building. You will feel it as soon as you enter! A great place to work and a great place to send your child.

My child attended this school for 4 years. I LOVED the staff! They were all very warm and caring. The principal was fantastic as was all of the staff. All of that aside I believe the education is lacking. My child never had homework or spelling words etc. Since we started a new school I can really see how much it was lacking. The music program thrives on a few "favorite" students who are always picked for everything. This makes it hard for any other child to try out for a part in a play/program because you know they won't get it. I tried to get my child in to the HALL program (gifted) but was told they didn't have enough "points" to get in. My childs new teacher said that my child was very gifted and should have been in honors all along. This was not by me asking, it was her addressing it to me at confrences. My child is now in honors and thriving! While I loved the staff and the environment at Anderson Grove it did not make up for what it was lacking education wise.

Can't really speak much about the school itself, as my child has not been attending too long. School is clean and staff seems very friendly. I did want to comment on the small class sizes in another users comment. My child started at this school in October and there are 29 students in his class. I was told that at the end of last year many students moved, and there were not enough students to add another class. I have been told that the teacher does have another adult helping at most times, but I still feel this is way to many kids for a 2nd grade class.

Yes the student-teacher ration is wonderful with about 13 kids in a classroom, but I'm not impressed with the curriculum here. No homework is brought home; I spoke to PPLV administrators about this. As an educator myself, I found their reasoning to be questionable. If your student happens to be ahead of the class there is nothing for them to do. The gifted program is basically a study hall to get the students out of the teachers way. I am looking at other schools in the area to see if they offer a more challenging environment for my child.

Love this school! There are only about 200 kids from grades k-6!! Small classrooms! Very down-home feeling! Couldn't be happier.

My daughter started attending this school the 2007-08 school year. She really enjoys this school and says that the teachers are caring and respectful of the students.

I could not ask for a better place to go every day than Anderson Grove. Parents are involved, teachers are amazing, and the pricipal cares what happens to each and every child. I am inspired by my colleagues, and each staff member contributes to the academic and social growth of the children. I am truly lucky to work here.

As a parent of a special needs child I have been thrilled with the progress our child has made. I had heard horror stories about exclusion at other schools. Anderson Grove educators have worked closely with us to ensure our child's special needs are met. As a result of this planning our child has thrived emotionally and academically.
