I have two children that attended Anderson by choice. Although the demographics changed significantly this year, the qualitiy of the education received did not. Teachers worked harder to meet all student needs dispite challenges with behavior issues. The PTA stepped up with new leadership and continued to provide family nights that were amazing. Blending 2 student climates seemed challenging, but all involved, from the teachers, to the parents, to the students, now see one united color- Viking Purple!
I have to disagree with the last parent comment. I am on my 2nd child to go through this school. I have never been treated with anything but kindness and respect from the teachers and the staff. They are more than willing to go the extra mile to accommodate ANY students needs. It doesn't matter if you child is Green, Brown, Purple, Black, or White they will do everything to make your child successful and they have the test scores to prove it.
There is lot of discrimination at this school, they don't like african american, hispanic or anybody that is not white american that's why I moved from that area.
My daughter went from 1st to 5th grade at CAE, and now my granddaughter is attending. She has finished PreK and Kindergarten, and is now going into the 1st grade. My daughter got an excellent education here. Now my granddaughter, who is 6, is reading books at about a 3rd grade level. One of the main things that is keeping me at my current address is the fact that we are in the Mansfield school district. Thanks to Ms. Faustino, Ms. Brown and Ms. Richardson for providing my children with a top-notch education. Thanks to Mr. Beaird for his tremendous leadership as principal. We are looking forward to another great year of learning and advancement with Ms. Stark at Charlotte Anderson Elementary.
My daughter absolutely loves this school! She has completed K-3rd and is looking forward to her 4th grade year. Extremely high parental involvement, fabulous caring teachers and a wonderful academic program make this school a hard act to follow for any other school we attend. Thank you Charlotte Anderson for such a wonderful experience!
Wonderful school! Our children have had an amazing educational experience with wonderful teachers! Hats off to Ms. Deil, Mrs. Duhamell, Mrs. Bernard and Mrs. Bradford. They have not only shown what wonderful teachers they are, but also what caring individuals they are when it comes to our precious children. Mr. Baird is a wonderful principal and very involved with the kids. Parent involvement is extremely high! We moved to this area to be within Anderson's boundries because of the reputation of this wonderful school!
Wonderful school! So much parental involvement that it can be difficult to find parking. There are always parents there to volunteer. It shows! Great staff who really care. My children Love to go to school. I can't ask for anything better!
Charlotte Anderson is an amazing school. The parent volunteering percentage is phenominal! The teachers really care and enjoy loving your children. The principals just rock! Our PTA is the best, and we just continue to thrive even more each year. The level of education that my children bring home is awesome!
My grand children began school mid year at Charlotte Anderson Elementary and were behind the average in their respective classes K and 4th. We were warmly welcomed by staff, administration and teachers. In just 4 short months the boys were brought up to average and greatly enjoy the Charlotte Anderson experience. These kiddos cant wait to get out the door to school in the morning. We enjoy the learning process and the after school activities.
Anderson is an excellent school. It has a strong parental support. During my son's five years there it was rated exemplary by the state every year. Dr. Tammy Rountree has left to become an assistant superintendant in Keller. However, I think the community will sustain the program.
We were foster parents to our son at first, and the school excepted him with open ares! This is a wonderful school! My son attended first grade with Mrs. Duhamell. Hat's off to Mrs. D! She took the time to work with him one on one. He went from a 0 reading level to a level 4 in only a few short weeks. My son's kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Williams. Hat's off to Mrs. Williams too! She also worked trial and error with our soon who is diagnosed ADHD. She worked through issues of puking everyday to just sending a note home saying he finally sang in class. The IEP program at this school is by far one of the best we have ever seen. We have since moved from Texas, but if I had one suggestion to any parent moving into Texas, buy a home in this school's district!
This elementary school is exemplary in every aspect. I have who started and finished elementary here and another who has been there for 3 years. The staff is great to work with, I feel they try to make sure the education they provide helps each child excell to their greatest potential. We are moving, so I hope that we are able to find this in our new school district.
This is the best elementary school in MISD. Not only do we have teachers who go above and beyond for their students, but the parent involvement is outstanding. Not many schools can boast that every student passed the reading TAKS taken in 2003! That is extraordinary. Although every school may have one or two teacher issues, this school rarely does and when concern is expressed, the issues are addressed and resolved. So glad to have a 1st and 3rd grader continue their education there.
I can't say enough about the quality of this school. It's our third year and we have had excellent teachers. The principal knows how to run a tight ship, which I think is required in times today.
Average school. We had a terrible time with a kindergarten teacher who insists my child has problems. Talked to other parents and stated that they were told by said teacher that their child had problems as well. One parent was told by this teacher to not come to school as often - scary!
I have a son starting his second year and a daughter starting her fourth year at this school. The leadership of this staff is outstanding. The teachers take the time to spend with each individual student. The parent involvement at this school is amazing. As a father of three I recommend this elementry school.
