Since kindergarten, I have found Anderson School District 1 to be my second home. The teachers and staff at all three schools have been nurturing and helpful in my growth. The current administration at Palmetto Elementary School could learn a thing or two from the current administrators of the Palmetto High School. Our high school principals know the students and parents of the students. They value a solid home/school relationship. I recommend this school district for those seeking a nurturing environment for their children. I'm grateful to have spent my childhood here!

Anderson School District No.1 is truly an exceptional community. The teachers, faculty, and administrators are all extremely dedicated to the success of their students. The number one purpose is to instruct us and to lead us along the right path in order to thrive in the future. I would like to see our district institute more course choices especially for Advanced Placement students.
Anderson School District 1 has been a very good school district that I have been enrolled in. There were some problems during the school year that had to be taken to the head of the district, but it was answered in a professional order. Overall, I love Anderson school district 1!
