The Anthony Independent School District (AISD) has seen an increase in student enrollment from 830 in 2011-2012 to 847 for the 2012-2013 school year. Anthony ISD has three schools (PK-5; 6-8; and 9-12), where we anticipate a steady increase in enrollment over the next several years with the development of housing areas within the boundaries of AISD. For Texas UIL academic and athletic competition, Anthony ISD competes in District 3-AAA along with schools from Clint, Mountain View, Fabens, Fort Stockton, Pecos and Presidio.
Anthony is unique in that it is considered a rural community by TEA standards, sitting midway between Las Cruces, New Mexico and downtown EI Paso with accessibility from I-10, the Anthony Gap and Trans-Mountain. Residents in the community enjoy the quiet setting afforded by living in Anthony with most of the residents commuting to El Paso or Las Cruces for employment activities.
Even though Anthony is a relatively small district, it has made a major investment in classroom technology and associated infrastructure. The role of technology at AISD is to achieve excellence and equity in student performance. This will be accomplished by using technology to expand student learning sources and accelerate instruction especially for all student groups, particularly our language minority students. For all students, technology is expected to stimulate creativity and curiosity as well as to assist in the development of problem-solving and higher order thinking skills. Technology in the classroom is utilized to establish the levels of technological literacy and competence that students will need in the future.
The district has made a full commitment to the Technology Applications, Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and has focused Career and Technology courses in the areas of Business and Technology. Also, by utilizing curriculum and assessment tools provided by the district’s CSCOPE curriculum framework, Eduphoria student data management system, a multitude of instructional software programs and teacher-made assessments, the district has the capacity to track and monitor student progress and achievement during the school year; and throughout the student’s academic career. This also allows teachers to make continuous adjustments to instructional delivery to meet the student’s academic needs. Differentiating the classroom instruction to meet the needs of individual learners is the primary focus of our academic efforts.
The district’s mission is to prepare all students for life and learning beyond high school taking advantage of their unique bilingual and bi-cultural heritage. It is the goal of the district to have students not only meet state-assessment standards and the STAAR and EOC, but to achieve academic excellence.
