About AES

We are located at the former Curtiston site with classroom additions completed in 2010.  We are the only elementary school in the Attalla City School System. We are a Title I school as well as a 21st Century Learning Site.  We have excellent, highly-qualified teachers and offer our students a quality foundation in education.

School Schedule

  • School begins at 7:45 and school is dismissed at 2:45. A rigorous curriculum that requires reading, writing, math, science, social studies, and physical education is scheduled.  Extra time is scheduled daily for reading and math intervention.  

    Students also follow a flex schedule that allows weekly access to the computer lab, and our school counselor.  Kindergarten and first grades also visit the library each week. Monthly time is also scheduled for Makerspace in the library and music.  Fourth and fifth grade students may also take "Strings" that is offered two times per week.
