Dear Parents and Scholars,
Welcome to Susan B. Anthony Elementary School! Anthony Elementary is a 2018 Honor Roll School in the Garden Grove Unified School District, an award-winning Honor Roll and California Distinguished District. We are very proud of our reputation for academic excellence. Our dedicated and caring staff is committed to providing all students with the academic and personal skills that lead to lifelong learning and success.
At Anthony Elementary, we create a learning environment where effort and achievement are celebrated. Anthony’s skilled teachers have high expectations for students and provide strong instruction combined with effective instructional strategies to ensure student have a positive learning experience.
Anthony is committed to preparing students for success in the future. To meet this need, we are expanding student learning opportunities in the area of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics). In addition, we have continued to expand our use of flexible seating throughout the school to improve student skills in the areas of discourse, collaboration, teamwork and problem solving.
Our goal is to ensure Anthony is a place where all students feel safe and experience academic success and personal growth. To do that effectively, it is my belief that schools and families must work together as partners. If at any time you have any suggestions, comments, or concerns, please know that my door is always open.
The staff and I are committed to making this school year an exciting and rewarding year for your child. We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child attains their highest potential.
The teachers and staff at Susan B. Anthony Elementary School are hardworking and dedicated to providing our students with high quality learning experiences and preparing them for a future filled with success.
Gifted and Talented Education Program (GATE)
We are proud to offer an on-site GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) Program. GATE students are grouped in general education classrooms with GATE-trained teachers who understand how to meet the unique needs of gifted learners. Our GATE teachers adhere to GATE Standards and attend on-going professional development training.
Technology and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)
At Susan B. Anthony School, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) is a priority. Our staff members realize the importance of preparing students for a future in technology. Thus we have a strong commitment to providing students with a broad and rich experience with technology. We are very proud to offer students the opportunity to use both iPads and Chromebooks with a 1:1 ratio in 1st – 6th grade and 2:1 ratio in Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten. Students participate in coding, robotics, movie-making, just to name a few. We are currently developing our new Information and Technology Center to integrate even more technology opportunities to enrich our student program.
In addition to our STEM focus, we are also proud to offer a strong program in the Arts. We currently have specially trained music teachers that provide vocal music instruction weekly to all students. Students in 5th and 6th grade have the opportunity to participate in the Susan B. Anthony Choir. Additionally, we have an instrumental music teacher who provides instruction to students in 4th-6th grades. Many of our exceptional musicians participate in honors choir and honors band. In addition to music, students also participate in FIBO art instruction and workshops throughout the year.
