During our time 3 principals have rotated but it continues to improve and inspire. I have a 1st and a 6th grader attending and regret that we are moving. This school is to be commended on many levels - Anderson Allstars they truly are - we'll miss you.

Alphabet Phonics has turned our child around in one year. Mrs. Bedenbaugh is a must have for Anderson. The PTA leadership is outstanding also.
