Welcome to Anderson School


Welcome to Anderson School!  We are proud to serve the Anderson community and provide a learning environment that supports all learners both in and out of the classroom.  We excel because of parent and community support, a passionate staff, and an engaged School Board.

Our K-8 school is located in an area rich in history and culture, and is surrounded by exceptional natural landscapes.  Although we face many of the same challenges as other small, rural districts, we succeed in educating all students through the employment of highly-qualified staff, exceptional programs, and collaboration with the Gallatin-Madison Special Education Cooperative.  Anderson School is a recipient of the Montana Behavioral Initiative(MBI) Gold Award for having systems in place to provide necessary skills for success: socially, emotionally, academically, and behaviorally.   The District strives to promote success in all areas and to offer every student the opportunity to become the best they can be as a learner and a citizen.

As the Superintendent and dad of two Anderson Panthers I am proud of our accomplishments and I am excited for the future adventures and challenges that we will experience together.  I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school district.  You may also contact the school using the contact form under the “Contact” tab or call us at 406-587-1305.

Go Panthers!
