Superintendent’s Message

“When any child comes into this world, it gives all of us an opportunity to be part of something special.” Author Unknown

The East Alton Elementary School District #13 is a place where the faculty, the support staff, and the members of the Board of Education understand that every child is special. It is with a realization that each child has a unique gift just waiting to be discovered that we work together with a common goal of providing nothing less than the very best educational experience for all our students.

Therefore, we are committed to providing a challenging curriculum that is delivered with skill by some of the very best teachers in the nation. Our teachers work very hard to present lessons that are tailored to meet the individual needs of the student in an environment that is child centered. In addition, every member of the District is engaged in continuous school improvement in an effort to provide an even better educational program that will equip our students with the tools necessary to meet the challenges of an ever changing society.

All of us that comprise the East Alton Elementary School District believe that every child can learn, that all students deserve the opportunity to reach for the proverbial brass ring, and, most importantly, that children deserve to be loved. Thus, we state with complete confidence that working together we really can build a better future…one student at a time.
