My experience with Anderson Five Charter School was amazing! They are one of the best schools in the state in my opinion. I'm very glad I was able to be a part of a school that was all technology. Being able to do my classes online helped me become more focused, and helped me be able to graduate a year early! having the opportunity to have such amazing teachers to help me through anything was the best part. I really appreciate the love and acceptance I received from everyone! This school also helped me overcome a rough patch in my life. I was really struggling with bullying in school, and my ninth-grade adviser at Westside High School was very helpful. He helped me get into Anderson Five Charter School, so I could become more independent, and succeed in my life as well.

Anderson School District No. 5 is a growing school district that has dedicated employees. Teachers go above and beyond to do what they can for their students, and money is used to better the environment in which the students are learning in. The district is beginning to evolve with technology and offers chromebooks to every student. They provide equal opportunity learning and try to help students in all subjects to make sure they succeed. Of course no district is perfect, I wish to see more improvement in the courses offered and after school programs that help struggling students. Otherwise, district 5 is a flourishing school district!
This school district is one of the best! The curriculum challenges its students to strive for success. However, I do feel as though the district could be a little more lenient.
