Anderson's teachers and the look of the school are amazing. But the principle favors certain students and doesn't give them the right punishments for there actions. Children get hit by others and nothing is done even when it is reported.

all the teachers...the office staff is the only reason my son made it through kindergarden

I do know that the teacher student ratio is certainly not 16:1. Most classes have between 21 - 24 students, which is still fairly low. This is a really great school with a strong sense of community and lots of parental involvement.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Wyoming administered the Proficiency Assessments for Wyoming Students (PAWS) in reading, writing and math to students in grades 3 through 8 and 11, and in science in grades 4, 8 and 11. PAWS tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wyoming. The goal is for all students score at or above the proficient level.
