The Bobbi McAtee/Elson Gift to Education


At Alburnett, we believe education is a means of preparing students today for the challenges and opportunities ahead of them. We are very proud of the success of our students following graduation. Our comprehensive curriculum offers strong college prep and vocational training programs to prepare students for entering the work force or continuing their training.


At Alburnett Community Schools, providing quality education is our top priority. Highly dedicated instructors and a supportive community combine to create an atmosphere that makes our school attractive to both current and prospective residents. Alburnett also proudly welcomes many open enrollment students from surrounding districts.


As a smaller school, teachers not only get to know each student, but become acquainted with their families. The faculty and staff at Alburnett share a common goal ~ To help each student achieve their full potential. Extra effort is the rule. From coming in early or staying late to work with a student, Alburnett teachers are dedicated to helping students reach their highest level of ability.


Participation in extracurricular activities results in higher achievement in school and a higher motivation to succeed. Many of the students at Alburnett are involved in extracurricular activities, and most are involved in more than one activity. A variety of events and programs are offered, including drama, athletics, band, chorus, and vocational/agricultural programs.

The involvement of the parents in their children’s education is also an important element in successful learning experiences. At Alburnett, parents are both welcome and encouraged to visit the classroom and become involved in their child’s activities. We have a very strong volunteer program and invite interested parents to participate as much as possible. Several groups are available including PTO, Athletic Boosters, Music Parents, and Parent Volunteers.

Alburnett has become our home and we could not imagine being anywhere else.
