A "Can do, and will do" School. Great faculty and administrators. Great Principal and Assistant Principal. If one cannot sense that this is a caring group, that has hopes and dreams for their students, then one was not looking for the positives at Alberta. You, Alberta, are in my prayers. You have given my grand child hope and a greater vision of what she can do even as a young child.

I think that Alberta Elementary is a very good school. It is has not been rightfully given its proper due. I think because that it is because of the hardwork and dedication of the principal, Mrs. Parker that Alberta Elementary continues to gain momentum in its quest for higher academic standards. Despite the lack of funding and the growing number of ESL students, Mrs. Parker's tenacity continues to guide the school in the right direction.

This school is beautiful... though that is on the outside. There are few teachers that actually care. The special education teacher is wonderful!
