Anchorage Independent School
Home to the only Independent school in Jefferson County, Anchorage, KY is a highly sought after area. In fact, quite a few residents moved to Anchorage specifically for the school!

Independent from the Jefferson County Public School District, Anchorage Independent School is still subject to the same state testing as other schools in the area. They follow the same year long school calendar as well. However, the school board has more control over the individual decisions made there. Located only 20 minutes from downtown Louisville, this is a wonderful school choice if you are looking to go a different route than the Jefferson County School District.
Instructing students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, the school prides itself on nurturing lifelong learners. There is a heavy focus placed on the fundamentals (math, reading, and writing) through the use of up-to-date technology, and there is no shortage of extracurricular activities either. Small class sizes promote individualized instruction, while involvement of parents and community members makes Anchorage Independent School a unique and all-encompassing learning experience.
