PUBLIC SCHOOLS:

ANDERSON COMMUNITY SCHOOL SYSTEM includes two high schools (Anderson & Highland), two middle schools (North Side & East Side), and nine elementary schools. Offices are located 101 West 29th Street.

Each middle school serves as a feeder school to one of the high schools: North Side to Anderson & Highland, East Side to Highland. The middle schools of Anderson Community Schools include the 6th grade and are viewed as a unique division in a total school program and through which students move steadily from kindergarten to graduation from secondary schools.

The curriculum is considered uniquely suited to the students and the community. A required program of general education enables each student to experience those common teachings, which are considered essential for effective living in American society. A broad program of specialized education supports the general education program, offers wide opportunity for exploration and perhaps, certain possibility of study in depth.
