Alton High School Graduation 2015



Rotarians Larry Thompson and Ron Mayhew deliver a set of books to Eric Dickerson's classroom at Lewis & Clark Elementary School. We are grateful to the Alton Godfrey Rotary Club for the recent donation of over $1200 worth of literature that will be enjoyed by students in fourth grade classrooms across the district. A special thanks to Ron Mayhew for taking the time to survey classroom teachers to tailor the purchase to instructional objectives and student interest. The Alton School District truly appreciates the ongoing support from our local Rotary Club.



Alton Middle and High School students will be taking a short school climate survey during April/May.  This survey will be brief, voluntary and anonymous.  It will not ask for personal experience details, but perceptions related to school safety, the school environment and student engagement.  If you have questions regarding this survey,  or want your child to opt out of the survey, please contact Sandy Crawford, School Climate grant coordinator at, or (618) 978-6335.  



 News 4 Schools: Metro East school getting boost in reading skills

Students at Alton's West Elementary are getting an extra boost in reading skills thanks to some generous volunteers. 

This year a dedicated group of community members has stepped up to support our second grade students in the area of reading. Three of our elementary schools have implemented a program commonly referred to as Reach Out And Read, or R.O.A.R.

Reach Out and Read targets a thirty minute block of time in the mornings before classes start, where second grade students can practice their reading one on one with an adult.  East Elementary, West Elementary, and Lovejoy Elementary are thankful for our wonderful network of community businesses and organizations that are willing to contribute their time to support literacy.

  During the 2014-15 school year, students in third through eighth grade and high school students will take the PARCC in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math. The PARCC exams replace the ISAT, formerly given to third- through eighth-graders, and the PSAE, previously given to 11th-grade students.  Click here for more imformation.
