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.

Fortunate and grateful to The Anderson School, for reigniting enthusiasm and excitement for learning within our daughter. She shares with us openly, specific examples of "Something that happened at school today!" The remarks range from really cool discussions they have at the beginning of each day to a math experiment, measuring and charting how far the sun had moved in two hours. When I first came upon this school in a rather country, bucolic setting, I questioned how much academic study actually gets accomplished here? Little did we know, at this gem of a school, each child is such a valued, integral member of this curious and kind community, that they want to efficiently complete their required daily tasks, so they can participate in a lively discussion about the upcoming presidential election. The true character of a child is fostered at a school where the Leadership balances and models learning facts with creating lasting relationships.

My first day at The Anderson School seemed like I had walked into someone`s house, set out on this incredibly beautiful piece of land, kind of like in the country. But in a good way! I was 11. There were about 20 kids, sort of in the age range from 6 to 16, and I was kind of shocked to see all these kids working hard at stuff, but at the same weird time, having a good time? The year before at my old school, I was totally hating it. Not a day went by, that someone was not being somehow really rude, basically a bully tosome other kid. The next two years, at the Anderson School I can`t tell you how much my overall learning improved. It had been a long time since I had liked going to school. I have to say the most important part was learning how to be supportive of other kids you go to school with - You know, respectful. How to talk about things that we might not agree on, but we learned how to discuss our differences. If you get a chance to go to this school, do it. Dr. and Mrs. A are some of the best teachers, the best people you will come upon, in your life.

My family feels very fortunate and grateful for Anderson School. It is such a gift to families like ours that have struggled in the past with finding a challenging educational environment. We searched and searched for a place that was truly different and built especially for gifted & talented students and we are grateful that we didn't stop looking until we found Anderson. The school has met and exceeded all our expectations.

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.
