Our Mission

The mission of the Alton School District is to prepare our students with college, career and citizenship skills through a safe and progressive learning environment.

District News

On Saturday, April 2nd the Alton School District had eleven 5th through 12th grade students qualify for the SIUE Regional Science and Engineering Research Challenge at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. These students showed off their scientific skills in areas such as chemistry, physics, botany, biochemistry, and microbiology. While working on their projects, students learn to apply the scientific method which includes observing, inferring, measuring, collecting data, and forming conclusions to interpret interactions between experimental variables. Students become aware of the interdisciplinary nature of science as they apply not only reading and writing skills but also mathematics and art to communicate their research findings. Congratulations to the following students:
