Andersen Elementary School opened its doors in 1919. The school is located in Bayport, Minnesota and along the heart of the beautiful St. Croix River. It is one of nine elementary schools in Independent School District 834. We are a kindergarten through sixth grade school with an enrollment of 350 students. We offer full day kindergarten and first through sixth grade traditional classrooms.
Our educational program is based upon Minnesota State Standards and is designed to help each child reach their academic potential while at the same time helping students develop skills to be outstanding citizens in our community. We have a safe and caring school where each child is valued for the person they are and the contributions they bring to Andersen Elementary.
We also encourage parent involvement and support. Our hope and vision is to develop a strong partnership between the school and family so we can work together in helping children develop to their fullest potential. Parents are encouraged to visit classrooms, talk with teachers, volunteer services, and attend conferences. Parents are always welcome at Andersen Elementary School.
Andersen Elementary offers a variety of programs including media, technology, music, physical education, special education, gifted and talented, ESL, Student Council, Adventure Club before and after school care and Community Education after-school programs.
