Philosophy of Educating the Whole Child

  • Alhambra... A "4.0" District

    The Alhambra Elementary School District strives to educate the whole child, placing value on academics and extracurricular endeavors that inspire students to explore different interests and talents. As a "4.0 District", Alhambra is built on "Four A's":

    • Academics
    • Athletics
    • Arts
    • Activities

    Participation in opportunities within the "Four A's" encourages the development of leadership skills, sportsmanship, creativity, commitment, accountability, and a true sense of belonging in our students. Throughout the year, students will be able to:

    • Participate in a variety of activities of their choice
    • Develop individual skills, as well as cooperative group behaviors
    • Develop social, emotional, and physical skills that can be used throughout their lives
    • Take risks
    • Build positive self-esteem
    • Flourish in a safe and healthy environment
    • Work alongside coaches and sponsors as role models in their development
