I used to be the Principal of this school, during the 99-00, 00-01, 01-02 school years. I will absolutely agree that the teachers (who were there at the time) were absolutely the best, most caring, professional people I have ever met. I am sure they still are, as I'm sure the hiring process has not changed very much. I was not able to make my best effort at the school, because at the time, although I was unaware of it, I had a progressive condition, called Spinal Cerrebellar Ataxia II (SCA II), which was getting progressively worse, and hindering my ability. I don't want to make excuses for myself, but in my seven years at Bradford Elementary School, as a Grade Two teacher, I did a really good job. At the end of the schoolyear, I always had ten - twelve sets of parents who wanted their child in my class the following year. I loved my job, absolutely everything about it! I live in Europe, now. My husband and I are very happy, although we live rather far from our families. If any of my old colleagues would like to email me, I would love to hear from you - and I will answer! My Best to All of You!!!

Very Very Wonderful School! My children came from a much larger school and grew in leaps and bounds when we moved to Alton. The teachers are the Best! Alton School's MEA ratings are higher on average then the State Average. The building is like new and they have also recently added new playground equiptment. Sad to see the older negative post because it coudln't be further from the truth.

Alton Elementary is a wonderful school and the staff there truely care about the students. We moved to Alton from a much bigger school system halfway through the school year. My children were lost in the mix at those big schools. I saw them grow more in that first half year here then a whole year at the old school. On Average Alton's MEA scores are higher then the state average which tells me they are teaching the students the appropriate curriculum. I love the staff. They are always friendly and willing to help. The building is like new and the playground has just recently been updated. I would highly recommend this school to anyone! Its sad to see an old post that couldn't be further from the truth. Just call the school and talk to the staff there and you can make up your own mind.

This school is under-staffed. The education is second rate, at best. The only interest the staff or administrators have is enrollment and funding. They are not concerned with the best interest of the children. I hope it closes when the governor's school admin. reorganization plan goes into full effect.
