School Notes:

The idle mind of bright child is truly a dangerous workshop. It is filled with an unbelievable potential and no place to go. Its powerful, innate creativity creates its own unique pathways. And where they go is usually anyone's guess. Children need to have a significant portion of their curriculum dedicated to the processes, not the products, of thinking. The act of thinking, as a serious and deliberate process for study, is typically neglected in schools. But children need to think about thinking. Gifted children need help to understand their powerful potential and, more importantly, come to realize that life must contain joy in living every day together with a purpose.

School Reviews

I am a French teacher. In my later years, I tutored physics, math, French, and chemistry (subjects I taught for 35 years) at Borders Books. Four years ago I was hired at Anderson School. In my many years as a teacher, I cannot remember being in such a relaxed environment as Anderson School. The children of various ages are gifted, outgoing, and greatly encouraged to develop their talents under Dr. and Mrs. Anderson's tutelage. I can only hope and wish that all educators would take a good look at Anderson School (and themselves) to better their own teaching habits.
