    What a happy place. The teachers and staff are always friendly and the students pick up that same energy. Very impressive.

    This school has been transformed in the last few years. Just a few years ago it had the lowest test scores in the county - now it is above 800. The principals and teachers have worked so hard to reach the students and transorm the culture of the school. The teachers have engaged the students and take complete responsibility for student learning. Amazing!

    Anderson Elementary school is the best school in the moreland school district. The teachers and principal are wonderful. The staff at anderson work hard to teach our children and meet the states no child left behind program. The staff here makes sure that those who need extra help get it through different programs after school. My child recieved the help he needed through an intervention program. The children are taught that character counts they are constantly reminded that they must be responsible respectful and safe. Again in my book Anderson and its staff is the best!
