I am a parent of a 2nd grader this is her 2nd year attending Anthony Elem. I am very pleased with her progress and willingness to want to learn more and be more involved. This is due to her Excellent 1st grade teacher who put extra time and effort into my child. Iam also a parent who is involved with her child and teacher and has almost daily contact with her. Im glad our family moved to be in this school zone. It was the best decesion for our child.

When I wrote a glowing review in 2009 for this school it was indeed a first rate school. My son's kindergarten and first grade teachers were the best of the best! However the quality and performance of the school has gone downhill drastically since that time. Standardized test scores have fallen significantly there's been two changes in principles very very few parents participate in PTO or SAC and it is becoming increasingly difficult for parents to know what actually takes place in their student's classroom. This no longer feels like our local community school; it's more like a typical government-run institution that has its own set of priorities.
I am the parent of two children that attend Anthony one which is in the 4h grade and the other in 2nd they both started there in Pr-K. The teachers and Parents are great couldn't ask for a better school for my children to attend!
I have a son that going to anthony it is a A+ school
I am unfortunately having to take my son out of Anthony.We are moving to Ft.Myers.I am hoping we will be back before he gets out of elementary.I like Anthony because it is a small school so it is easier to get to know people.I am looking at the population of the schools down there compared to Anthony and I am going to miss it.My sons kindergarten teacher Ms.Gilby was great!We are going to miss her.I feel there should be more involvement with the parents.It seemed only a select few participated in the PTO.Since my son was only in kindergarten I cannot comment on the after school programs.I feel the academics was awesome!I also hope I can utilize the library at the new school for AR.I am gonna miss you!
