Anchor Elementary is one of two young 5 through second grade schools in the Dexter Community School District. 

Our mission is to provide a quality education for all students.

We are so proud of the students who come here to learn each day. Our staff believe children learn best when they feel safe and respected, and when they believe they are valued members of a caring school community.  We work every day to encourage a love for learning as we surround each child with a rich and stimulating curriculum.

We take pride in:

  • Highly skilled teachers, para-educators and support staff
  • Ongoing staff development
  • Our wonderful parent teacher group
  • Our weekly “Anchor Assistants” from each classroom

Thank you for visiting our website.  If you have any questions about our school, please feel free to contact Principal Craig McCalla.

We are on Twitter!
