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.
