The Motto of the School embodies the vision and mission of Anderson Higher Secondary School.

Enter to grow in body, mind and spirit, depart to serve better your God, your country and your fellowmen.

About  Us

From a humble beginning in 1991 where Classes Nursery to Class IV were started with only 100 students and 10 teachers, it has proceeded from strength to strength and the first batch of Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) students, 7 in number, passed in 1998 with flying colours. The school was accorded Recognition for Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) by the Meghalaya Board of School Education (MBOSE) and Department of Education, Government of Meghalaya in the year 2000 and it has performed excellently till date where many meritorious students have bagged positions in the General List, Tribal List as well as Top 20 lists with 100% passing, majority in the 1st Division with distinctions. Class XI Arts Stream was established in 2005 and the first batch of Higher Secondary School Leaving Certificate (HSSLC) students passed in 2007 with excellent results. This stream received Recognition from MBOSE and Department of Education, Government of Meghalaya on 2007. The students of the Arts stream have had 100% passing till date. Scientific modern times demands the change in educational needs even in rural areas, and to meet this challenge the school introduced Class XI Science and Commerce streams in 2013. This year, 2015, our Jubilee year, the first batch of Science and Commerce are appearing in the HSSLC Science and Commerce streams.
