The Allamakee Community School District promotes a safe, caring, and supportive environment. The schools seek to create a challenging learning environment that encourages high expectations and allows for individual differences and learning styles. Learning is maximized when it takes place in an environment enriched with support, encouragement and assistance. We celebrate the pursuit of lifelong learning and are committed to nurturing high self-esteem, resourcefulness, and respect for others.
