Leland Anderson


Leland Anderson and his family recently returned from Shenzhen, China, where Leland was the Head of School at Shenzhen RDF International School. Prior to his employment in China, Leland worked for American Heritage School in American Fork, Utah, as a high school principal, assistant principal, and a co-director of American Heritage’s worldwide distance education programs. Leland graduated from Harvard University with a Master of School Leadership. He taught English at Oak Canyon Junior High School in Utah. He also holds a Bachelor of English Teaching and a minor in Management from Brigham Young University. Leland and his wife, Gina, are the parents of six children. “I am grateful that American Heritage School celebrates the truths of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ while also pursuing excellence in languages, history, science, and the arts,” Leland says. “Salt Lake Valley was my boyhood home. I feel enthusiasm whenever I think about helping to establish an American Heritage School in Salt Lake City. The school’s culture is one of unity in the principles of kindness, liberty, and scholarship. I am glad my children have been blessed by the faculty, administration, staff, and programs of this exceptional school.”
