This school is getting better and better. The teachers are great and very dedicated to make students successful. Homework and programs are reasonable and effective, and my kids got very quick learning in many perspectives.
My son is currently enrolled in Alex Anderson Elementary School. I love this school. The teachers who I've interacted with are very caring and dedicated to making sure the children are successful. The diversity in population is wonderful. I haven't seen much bullying. I volunteer regularly and have my son participate in whatever programs they offer. It makes a big difference to be in the class and see what the teacher has to deal with on a daily basis. I've heard parents complain about teachers, but do little to actually help the situation. My experience with having my son attend Alex Anderson has been wonderful.
This School keeps getting better every year. Excellent caring teachers. Amazing yard dutys who are actually nice and watch over the safety of our children. Mrs. Yvonne Campbell Home and School Club president is an Angel to this school. She is there everyday volunteering and making our school better. Over all its A Great School
Alex Anderson does have some great teachers that dedicate themselves to their students and I am grateful my children were giving some great teachers. Not the best setup of a school I've ever seen, but what can you do its older. Sadly I have had issues with what I think is a glorified babysitter of some students. I have never seen someone working at a school act so childish by pointing her finger and saying I am sure disrespectful things about me for no reason and the looks I got wow if looks could kill. Mind you I never even met her. In 2012 my child was verbally harassed by a child's grandparent and I didn't even hear about it till I picked my child up from school from him. Nor the teacher or anyone else informed me, I was livid. The principle did not call me or would even give me the time of day to let me know it was taken care of. Same son was signed up to talk to a therapist (I as a mom was worried about his attitude affecting his learning and distract other kids. Family changes can bother kids in a different way.) Come to find out she wasn't even a certified therapist, she ended up causing way more hard them good, it was terrible. When my husband called to talk to the principle she again was unable to and when she was able to talk to him she had no real idea about the therapies. Other then the few teachers I did happen to meet, I disliked this school so much from the very beginning. I am fighting tooth and nail to get them into a better school, so far at least they are transferred out of that awful place.
