Overall excellence and a substantial library.


Posted October 29, 2009

I take my granddaughter to kindergarten at Anderson and have found nothing but greatness. Great staff help me in all ways. Even though classrooms are large the class is structured and nurturing. Breakfast and lunch are provided and before and after school programs are available. I'm glad my granddaughter has the opportunity to learn in a great school like Anderson Elementary.

My son has been at Anderson for 4 years.They do have good special ed program,but that's about it.I don't think they protect kids from bullies.And they give way to much homework my kids do about 3 hours of homework a day.

It is a good school. It's only draw back is the Teachers pretty much lets the kids do want they want to do. If they want to run around in the class room while doing they school work it's ok as long as they get their work done.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Nevada used the Criterion Referenced Test (CRT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The CRT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Nevada. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
