    Welcome!

    Andersen Community,

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Andersen Elementary. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition of education! My most recent administrative experience was at Woodland Elementary, where I served as principal. I am excited and eager to bring my skills as an educational leader to Andersen and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

    Along with the teachers and staff, I will work hard to continue Andersen’s legacy by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character education and empowering teachers and students so that we can continue to increase all of the students' achievement. I have been spending time getting to know the school's community and familiarizing myself with Andersen. In doing so, I've learned that Andersen is a place where strong connections are made between home and school, and staff members are committed to developing the whole child. As the parent of two children, I fully understand the challenges and rewards you face every day to ensure your child has the best educational experience. My passion has been, and always will be educating students. With that in mind, you can expect that I will work diligently with teachers to make sure our students are exposed to curriculum and instruction that is engaging and challenging.

    My door is always open, and I welcome your input. Please feel free to contact me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you to help each student at Andersen meet their goals and have a successful school year!

    Sincerely,
    Tiffany Lewis

    About Our School

    About Us

    Andersen School is located at 1900 Port Seabourne Way within the city of Newport Beach. The school serves approximately 360 students in grades transitional kindergarten through sixth. Our community consists of single-family homes. The school opened in 1973 and is named after a former school superintendent, Roy O. Andersen.

    Andersen Elementary was designated a California Distinguished School for the years 1987, 2002, 2008 and 2014. The success of our students is due to the strong partnership that exists in our community. The school staff works closely with parents to promote learning, personal growth, and high self-esteem. The high quality of our staff and active participation of our parent community make for a very successful partnership.

    Our mission at Andersen Elementary School is to develop character and to create a positive school environment where learning is a shared responsibility of staff, parents, and community in order to ensure that every student experiences personal success academically, physically, emotionally, and socially.
