Anderson Primary is an awesome school. My son attends Anderson and receives a top quality education. The faculty and staff treat each other like family and with respect.

I think that school is great and they really care about the students. My daughter gives me no complaints, so that is wonderful. Being that I am a college student, I need to know that she is well taken care of while she is away from home. Theres no other primary school I would want her to be in except Anderson, home of the baby Jags.

I have worked at this wonderful school going on 10 years now and I can truly say that this is a most responsible school to students and to parents. We try very hard to give the students all the tools that are needed to further their learning. The teachers are always learning new techniques to further their ability to teach more to the students. I love this school.

About these ratings

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
