Oklahoma Core Curriculum Tests (OCCT)

    Our son has been at Anderson since K and he's now going into the 2nd grade. We love Anderson. The teachers are awesome and so are the parents and students. Our son is a great reader because of how they teach. Not everything is perfect at Anderson but it's an above average school for kids to learn and excel and they have some outstanding teachers!

    My son has been a student at Andersen since Pre-K. He is currently in the 5th grade and this is his last year there. We had considered moving within the district a year ago but decided to keep him at Andersen for his 5th grade year. We love it there! Andersen's staff seems more like a second family and we feel that our son has received an excellent education through this school. Mr. Williams has been a wonderful example of leadership and the teachers have been tremendous in helping our son grow academically socially and physically. We will be sad when May comes around and he says goodbye to his elementary years! We highly recommend this school to anyone looking at the Union school district.
