About the District

Welcome to Albert Lea Area Schools. We are a thriving school system of over 3,500 students in grades preK- focused on continuous improvement. We have a dedicated staff that strives to meet the needs of our diverse student body every day. We are proud of the accomplishments of the members of our district at every level of education.

We continue to expand our ConnectED technology initiative. This year, our students in grades 6-12 will be issued a laptop computer to assist with their studies, while students in grades 3-5 will have access to laptops in every classroom on a daily basis. Students in K-2 will have access to iPads.

As the year progresses, we will take steps to improve our athletic facilities in preparation for the 19-20 school year, thanks to the community support of our $24.5 million dollar referendum.

I invite you to take some time to see our students in action at sporting events, or be entertained by some of our outstanding performers in the fine arts.

Go Tigers!
