The Princeton Alternative Elementary School community is a special place where students in kindergarten through grade 5 experience the challenges and joy of learning in a nurturing environment that promotes respect for self and others. Our highly talented staff works effectively and tirelessly in partnership with parents and the community to ensure that all children are successful learners. We afford students a plethora of academic and leadership experiences and character-building activities to prepare them to become tomorrow's leaders.
The school goal is that all students will demonstrate the higher level thinking required to accomplish challenging tasks in all curriculum areas. These higher level thinking skills include critical stance, prediction and problem solving, and creative expression. In order to support student achievement of this goal, teachers participate in comprehensive training and professional development based on the latest research and best practices in education.
Our educational program provides the opportunity for each child to progress towards the mastery of skills and competencies. Princeton student performance continues to far exceed state averages in all areas of the school profile. The Alabama Reading and Mathematics Test Plus administered in grades 3 through 5 reflect very strong performances in writing, reading, science and mathematics.
The vision of Princeton Alternative Elementary School is to educate all students academically, socially, and physically by inspiring a passion for learning and maintaining a culture of respect, hard-work, leadership, collaboration, and excellence in everything we do. Our teachers, administrators, and support staff are committed to providing a quality education for all students.
