Anniston Avenue Elementary School Reviews
Gulfport is a great place to work and learn! As one of three original Excellence For All pilot districts, we have lead the way in Common Core implementation in the state. Out-of-state parents have lamented about the rigor of our curriculum noting that their children are being challenged to become conceptual learners and critical thinkers. This is also a testament that the district holds everyone to high expectations. As a parent, Gulfport School District (GSD) was and is an easy choice. Thanks to the teachers counselors, and administration, two of my sons earned about $60,000.00 in academic, leadership, and band scholarships. The third and youngest son has requested to stay because he loves the school, its robotics program, and band. What more could a parent expect? I recommend GSD as THE education destination on the Gulf Coast.

Anniston Elementary is a great school. A lot of people want their children to attend Anniston, even paying tuition for their child to be able to attend. So, that says a lot about a school.
Anniston is a great place for a child to learn and grow! With a caring and dedicated staff, Anniston helps every child find the Leader inside themselves. The Leader In Me Program at AAE is truly giving each student skills that they can use today, tomorrow, and for the rest of their lives! Anniston's academics are above and beyond what is expected for each grade level :) Proud to be an Anniston Tiger !
Anniston Avenue Elementary is by far the best school in the Gulfport School District. As a teacher and as a parent, I know and understand the need for a compassionate and supportive staff to take care of my child. Anniston Exceeds that expectation. We are dedicated to your child and know what it takes to be the best.
Anniston Avenue is an outstanding school! They have quality programs and are doing some innovative activities like having students participate in Steven Covey's the Leader in Me Program . The staff at the school works hard to insure all of the children get a quality education. When I visit this school the children are having fun, engaged in learning, and working hard.
Anniston is a wonderful school with an amazingly dedicated faculty. I've had children there during the last ten years, and I can say nothing but incredible things about the experiences they've had and the education they've recieved!
Anniston is a great school with attentive teachers. It's in a large neighborhood and many children walk to school-which you can't say about many schools this day and age. Gulfport is the first district in MS to adopt the new core curriculum. Obviously given this opportunity because the MS Dept of Education knows Gulfport's educators are very capable of implementing such a drastic overahaul to our education system. Children at Anniston feel important, respected and in turn are taught to make others feel the same.
Teachers, principal, vice principal, and staff are all welcoming and easy to communicate with. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to be involved in their child's education and school festivities. Curricula promote application of topics taught, which provides my children (3rd grader and 1st grader) with confidence in their skills. Great positive reinforcements provided motivate students to excel.
Anniston and the Gulfport School District have provided a wonderful education for my 1st grader. We have experienced wonderful teachers and a great administration. As I parent I feel heard and involved. Children are encouraged and rewarded for positive action. The school provides lots of extracirricular activities for a broad range of interests.
My son's first year at Anniston in Kindergarten and this school has exceeded my expectations. The teachers and staff care about the kids. I feel comfortable about going to the Principal or teachers about anything.
I love Anniston Elementary! The teachers and staff are wonderful. The principal and vice principal are amazing. I have one son in kindergarten and one in 1st grade, and I am beyond impressed by their progress. I am active duty military, and I hate that we may be leaving the area next year.
I'm impressed with their curriculum, gifted programs, cafeteria, and strong arts programs. It is truly one big family!
Very impressed by the teachers and their motivation to get the best out of every student, every day and in every way. Quest program challenges and exposes my son to problem solving in various ways- awesome.

CHILD NUTRITION IS EXCELLENT FOR TAKING CARE OF THEIR WORKERS!
I work in the Finance department and find the employees at Anniston Ave do a very good job managing records and people with a goal of doing what is best for the children.
Anniston is a great place to send your child. Teachers are passionate about their jobs and are doing an exceptional job to prepare students for the middle school. It is ranked as one of the best schools on the Coast.
The staff at Anniston is by far the most attentive, passionate, and knowledgeable group of educators that I have come into contact with. They put their heart into their jobs.
The staff at Anniston Elementary is extremely attentive to children and parents of children transitioning from pre-k to kindergarten. During transition meetings staff provided information to parents regarding kindergarten and actively listened to parent concerns. Parents left the meeting with knowledge, comfort in knowing what to expect and excitement for their child's entry into the public school system. This was due to the principal and staff at Anniston.
Without a doubt, the children at this school receive a quality education that is unsurpassed by any district on the Coast. Go GSD!
I have worked very closely with the Anniston Avenue Elementary School staff throughout the past two years, and I can honestly say that I have never been involved with any other school that truly takes each and every students' educational needs into consideration when preparing them for the future.
Anniston is an inspiring school with a high rate of exceptional students, teachers and administrators. I look forward to my visits to the school each and every time. The school boast a learning atmosphere in the hallway even before entering the classroom.
As a district staff member and an AAE parent, I can say that this IS the best elementary school in the district! Great staff and fantastic administrators!! Your child will receive a top education here as well as a fun and safe learning environment. I give it 5 stars!!!
This a wonderful school with a great staff. The children receive the highest level of dedication from their teachers.
