Mission Statement: The mission of Alturas Elementary School is for 100% of our students to demonstrate academic achievement at or above the expected level of performance as defined by the Florida Department of Education. Alturas Elementary School has a rich history beginning in the early 1900's. It was originally established to educate the children of those living and working in the young agricultural and ranching community. A planned vision for turning the community into a city with all of the desirable attributes was derailed by the "twenties land bust" in Florida. Financially drained developers returned to the north leaving behind only their dreams. After this, numerous Alturas families expanded their citrus and cattle industries, but not the city limits or population. Today, the school serves a much more diverse group of families and students, few of whom work directly in the agricultural or ranching businesses. Yet, there is still the spirit of long ago evident in the fact that the families choose to live a rural life instead of a city life. We are, indeed, Polk County's last country school.
