Principal's Corner

Dear Gold Academy Families,

My name is Jana Anderson, Principal of the Gold Academy. My vision is that learning occurs in a safe and respectful environment with high expectations for everyone. The teachers at the Gold Academy guide, facilitate, and monitor differentiated learning experiences which empower all students to become self-directed learners.  Support for this learning is a partnership of family, school, and our community. Some highlights of Gold Academy include….

  • Utilization of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Strategies)
  • Professional Development for staff each week based on curricular needs
  • Targeted interventions each day
  • 1-to-1 iPad use for all students in grades 1-6
  • Family events throughout the school year

My goal is to support students, parents, and teachers on a daily basis and promote a caring environment that fosters trust and collaboration to ensure that our students are motivated to achieve their personal best.

The Gold Academy is Decatur Proud!

Jana Anderson
