Welcome to Albert Lea Area Schools where we ALways Expect the Best!  This year promises to be a very exciting year for our school district, as a number of building projects supported by our district  community are coming to completion. 

 Our renovation at Hammer Field  will provide Albert Lea with one of the finest stadiums in the Big 9 conference.  We will host our first games in early September.  Halverson Elementary has added a secure entrance and a new full size competition gymnasium.  We are also renovating space at the Brookside School to open a district daycare facility later this fall.  Work on our varsity softball field and sub-varsity soccer and baseball fields at the Hammer Complex will continue throughout this school year in preparation for competition in 2020-21.

Academically we will continue our continuous path towards excellence.  During the 2018-19 school year, Our district was named to the Advanced Placement Honor Roll.  We also were named a Best Community for Music Education.  This year we will tie a number of our school improvement initiatives together under the framework of High Reliability Schools.

Albert Lea Area Schools offers quality programs in academics, arts, and athletics, and our facilities  are unmatched.  Please come and check us out!
