Anderson Elementary School, located in the Moreland School District, educates over 400 students in a safe, productive learning environment. The school staff is dedicated to developing the whole child by teaching academic competence, modeling effective social skills, and providing engaging enrichment opportunities.

The academic program is focused on research-based teaching practices and standards-based curriculum. Every six weeks, students are assessed in the areas of vocabulary and reading comprehension and are showing excellent growth.

Anderson students are offered excellent enrichment opportunities thanks to the support of local neighborhood associations, businesses, and the parent community. Students are participating in visual arts, poetry, photography, and ballet.


In partnership with the City of San Jose and other community resources, Anderson parents also have the opportunity to take classes. Classes have included: cake decorating, exercise, and gang awareness. Other classes are scheduled for the beginning of the year.

The staff at Anderson strives to strengthen the bond between students, parents, and staff resulting in the ability of all students to reach their full potential in being responsible citizens and life-long learners.
