- Anderson Elementary School
N/AGreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageWe were very pleased with the quality of our son's education at Anderson. Don't be scared by the lack of a Great Schools Rating; it is a function of the types of standardized tests that go into the rating system. The elementary schools on Eielson are split in two; K-3 at Anderson and 3-6 at Crawford (we had sons at both). Our son attended the last quarter of his Kindergarten year and left at spring break in his second grade year. (both were a function of our military-related moves) We found the class sizes and academic curriculium to be comperable to most of the other schools we have had our children at throughout the country. The teachers, in my experience, were fantastic. They were always exceptionally communicative, to include personal updates on both positive and negative academic and behavioral issues. Wish there was more PE, but it's tough at -30!Parent Review11y ago

5/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageNorth Pole E has great teachers who really care about the kids and their education. It is wonderful that the school day starts at 9 am. The kids aren't treated like robots who have to perform for test scores. They are treated like individuals with individual needs and learning abilities. This is a great school and my two children love going to school at NPE. The fact that many of the teachers send their own children here says a lot about this school.Parent Review11y ago

6/10GreatSchools RatingParent Rating AverageMy eldest is in 4th grade and has been at this school since Kindergarten. We have had teachers that are thoughtful. The old principal was great, this new one I just don't know much about other than my child is upset by taking away walk-arounds in halls when it is too cold to go outside and the talent show. I am upset that my child has had a problem with certain subjects since 2nd grade and we had teachers that down played the problem. Now she has grades instead of the rating score and she is D's and F's. We had a support team meeting with just about everyone because that was the only route to get dr ordered testing. They said give them 6-8 weeks to let them improve. At 8 weeks I called back and was told they wont test despite pediatricians request and they don't know what to do at this point. I am not getting calls back anymore either.Advice, if your childs grades suffer (pay attention to percentages, not the 'S' Rating) then holding back is not an option I was told after 2nd grade. I am highly upset that at this point my child is supposed to move through the system with suffering grades because it is better than holding back emotionally. She is the type that struggles with her math and reading assignments to the point of tears and several hours when it should be under 20 minutes.Good is that I have liked her teachers and the old principal, Mr File, as I don't know this one.Other Review5y ago
