    At Anona Elementary, our focus is providing an academic environment with the highest student achievement possible in an engaging and safe learning environment. Children and teachers alike must become master learners, problem solvers, and world communicators in order to be effective and successful. We are proud to have received an "A" grade for the past four school years. Outstanding students, a dedicated staff, and supportive parents all work together to help our students succeed. We are all proud of Anona's accomplishments and will continue striving for excellence.

    Anona Elementary School was originally established in the 1800s. The first recorded history of Anona was in 1874. While the school building has been moved from its original location, we still strive to maintain that small community atmosphere while increasing our use of technology, offering your child the best of both worlds. Today, we have a flourishing school community with more than 400 Kindergarten through Fifth Grade students.

    Morning Car Circle Safety
    For your children's safety, please wait until your vehicle has cleared the guard rails along the sidewalk before you allow your children to exit your car. Staff members are stationed in the drop-off area between Building 5 and the Kindergarten room closest to Indian Rocks Road. If everyone pulls forward as far as possible in the lane before children exit cars, we should be able to move the line more quickly and safely in the morning.
