About our School:
Our school is a small, rural school located 4 miles from Interstate 95 in Alton, Maine. The University of Maine at Orono is a short distance away, on the opposite banks of the Penobscot River.
We are a Pre-K to grade 4 school with a relatively small enrollment.

The town of Alton is located in Penobscot County and was incorporated in 1844 from a portion of Argyle Plantation. In 1863 and again in 1871, it ceded land to Old Town. Alton was originally known as Township No. 3 until 1815.
Today, Alton is comprised of several local businesses, all of which show their loyal community support for our school. The local Alton Volunteer Fire Department, Alton Grocery, Juniper Ridge as well as other agencies have all contributed to the ongoing successes, accomplishments and activities that our community offers to its students.
