Project Based Learning (PBL) School Resources
What is Project Based Learning? Project-based learning is a dynamic approach to teaching in which students explore real-world problems and challenges. With this type of active and engaged learning, students are inspired to obtain a deeper knowledge of the subjects they're studying. It allows students to work more autonomously to construct their own learning, and culminates in realistic, student-generated products.
Skylert/School Messenger
The Altoona School District is pleased to announce our use of the Skylert/School Messenger notification service. School Messenger is a communications system that allows us to quickly send mass notifications to parents, students and employees. School Messenger can provide you with information by Phone Call, Email and/or Text Message. Starting on February 4, 2013, we will use the system to let families know about emergency situations, weather-related delays/cancellations, changes to scheduled events, student absences, low lunch account balances, and to announce upcoming events. Follow the link to find out how it all works!
Transportation Services
Our student transportation services transferred to Student Transit as of January 1, 2013. Contact them at 715-839-5116.

Did you know?
Alert! Be aware! The Altoona Athletic Boosters is the only organization that produces a "sports calendar" or poster to promote our athletic events. If your business has been contacted to buy advertising by any company or organization other than the Altoona Athletic Boosters, you may have been "scammed." These companies operate under names like Athletic Boosters Inc. or Sport Media. In August, Sports Media fraudulently "sold an ad" in the amount of $139 to a local business - supposedly for an 2010/11 Winter Sports Poster for Altoona High School.
