Anser Charter School

Why the Goose?

Our name, Anser, is Latin for goose. Geese are birds with extraordinary learning capacity, social skills, individuality, stamina, and physical health. The name was selected to reflect the sense of community at our school.

Geese fly in formation and use thrust to fly farther and faster than they ever could by themselves. They rotate positions while flying to increase endurance and their honking encourages continuous community effort. Finally, geese will stay with an injured bird until it dies or recovers before joining another formation and pushing on with the journey. These characteristics of a supportive and collaborative community are embodied in the name Anser.
