In the Lewiston-Altura Public Schools, it is our intent to provide students with learning that will last a lifetime, prepare them for the future and become positive, contributing members of our society. 

The entire staff at ISD 857 is committed to providing each student with an excellent education. It is without saying that everyone is expected to do their best and strive for high goals. For this to be accomplished, teachers bring into their classrooms best practice models, differentiation, individualized instruction and have created a warm, welcoming learning environment.

In Lewiston-Altura, the public school plays a vital role in the lives of not just the students but also the community at-large. We appreciate the strong partnership and support of the business and civic entities. When schools walk hand-in-hand with its community members, the cities flourish.

We invite you to walk with us.
