Welcome to Anser!

Whether you are an Anser family, a prospective parent, or a community member, we welcome you to Anser Charter School, Boise’s first charter school entering into our 25th year in operation!

Anser is one of 160+ Experiential Learning (EL) Education schools in the country. The EL model is a research-driven, student-focused education reform model making a difference in the lives of students, parents, teachers, and communities around the country. At Anser, we educate the whole child by meeting the academic, social and emotional needs of students through a hands-on, rigorous, and social approach to learning.

Our students experience opportunities for growth through Adventure, Fieldwork, and Service, changing the world through thousands of hours donated to the greater community. They also develop their potential through focused Visual Arts and STEM curricula, lifetime sports, and the support of our engaged and dedicated parents.
Anser is a special place, thanks to the dedication and involvement of our highly trained and effective teachers, committed families, and the many community members who share their talents with our students.

For parents who want to learn more, our Enrollment Tours offer a rich overview of Anser. For those interested in making a donation, our Support page provides a number of ways to give back. If you are an artist or non-profit that could benefit from student service or a community member who has a gift to share with our students, we welcome your involvement.

Please contact us! We would love to hear from you.
