Anderson School offers our non-traditional learners a typical school experience and a stimulating classroom setting. Our modifications and adaptations combined with an individualized approach to learning meet and exceed the state’s curriculum. We incorporate enrichment opportunities into our program such as music therapy, cooking and baking.

We are an 11-month program, with consistent scheduling and staffing year-round. The school has rolling admissions, so that eligible students can be enrolled at any time throughout the year.

“We are deeply appreciative of the care that our child receives at Anderson School - care in terms of the team being invested in his health, wellness, and development, as well as caring about and finding delight in him as a person and friend.”

“It makes us feel comfortable that our child is 100% safe - not just in the building but also the way the staff present themselves, and are. I know my child is in good hands and for a mom with a non-verbal child, that means the world!”
