Our schools are the heart of our Community!
The School District of Altoona includes the City of Altoona, a portion of the Town of Washington and to a much smaller extent the Town of Lincoln and City of Eau Claire. The district extends six miles to the east, south to highway AA, southwest to Otter Creek. The northern border is Lake Altoona. Fairfax Avenue is the district's western limit.
Our entire school district is geographically small - just over 13 square miles - but big in opportunity (Offering large school opportunities with a Small School Approach).
Three of the district's four schools, Altoona Intermediate School (4-5), Altoona Middle School (6-8), and Altoona High School (9-12) are conveniently located on one site. Our fourth school, a new state of art elementary school was built and opened to our K-3 student population in the 2016/17 school year. Altoona Elementary School, which is located under one mile east at 157 Bartlett Avenue, replaced Pedersen Elementary School.
