Anderson Students

Students at The Anderson School are truly unique. They are often misunderstood, but are all extraordinary kids who possess many talents and abilities in so many different ways.

At the Anderson School, students learn to be proud of who they are and believe in what they can accomplish.

A partnership for student success

Anderson + Parents

The Anderson School staff work closely with parents to ensure that the individual needs of each student are being met.

As members of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team, parents provide a great deal of knowledge and experience regarding their child. They provide historical information and the big picture from year to year. They share insights about how their child learns, the child’s interests, and other things that only a parent would know. They can listen to the ideas of others about what their child needs to work on at school and share their suggestions. They can also report on whether the skills the child is learning at school are being used at home.

Throughout the year, both parents and school districts receive a detailed report of student progress. This includes academic standards that are mastered throughout the year – Mathematics, English, Science, and Social Studies.

Parents are encouraged and welcome to contact the principal at any time with concerns, ideas or suggestions!


What Parents are Saying about Anderson

“I have noticed small changes in my daughter and her attitude and willingness to engage in her education since she’s been at the school and it’s been a little over a month.   She communicated that this is the first school that she felt safe and free from anxiety and likes being there.  She gets up on her own and gets ready without my prompts.”

2023 Parent

My daughter was falling through the cracks in public school. The relationships formed with staff have turned not only her grades around, but also her confidence and outlook on school. She knows that ‘she matters.’ Thank you, MCIU!”
