Quality
At Alburnett Community Schools, providing quality education is our top priority.  Highly dedicated instructors, and a supportive community combines to create an atmosphere for learning that has placed Alburnett among the top schools in the nation.

Dedication
As a smaller school, the teachers at Alburnett not only get to know each student, but became acquainted with their families as well.  The faculty and staff at Alburnett share a common goal:  To help each student achieve his or her full potential.  Extra effort is the rule rather than the exception among our teachers.  Whether it be coming in early or staying late to work with a student, the teachers at Alburnett are dedicated to helping individuals reached their highest level of ability. 

Success
At Alburnett, we believe education is a means of preparing students today for the challenges and opportunities ahead of them tomorrow.  We are very proud of the success of our students-over 70 percent of Alburnett students continue their education following graduation.  Our comprehensive curriculum offers strong college prep and vocational training programs to prepare students for entering the work force or continuing their training.

Involvement
Participation in extracurricular activities results in higher achievement in school and a higher motivation to succeed.  Over 70 percent of the students at Alburnett are involved in extracurricular activities, and many are involved in more than one activity.  A variety of events and programs are offered, including drama, athletics, band, chorus, and vocational/agricultural programs. 

The involvement of the parents in their children's education is also an important element in successful learning experiences.  At Alburnett, parents are both welcome and encouraged to visit the classroom and become involved in their child's activities.  We have a very strong volunteer program and invite interested parents to participate as much as possible.  Several groups are available including PTO, Athletic Boosters, Music Parents, and Parent Volunteers.
