It is our privilege to lead these students in the direction of their dreams. We are committed to academic excellence while also maintaining a focus on genuine care and concern for each child.

Jack Anderson Elementary is a school with a solid foundation and a history steeped in success. As one of the first fifteen schools in the state to receive Tennessee STEM Designation in 2018 and also earning AdvancED STEM Certification and Accreditation in 2016, JAE strives to keep momentum moving ever forward as our program continues to improve.

Strong relationships have been built between our school and community. These partnerships have provided many of the opportunities and experiences available to our students.
