Known for being the “heart” of a diverse community, students and staff on our campus reflect a synchronicity that happens when people from different backgrounds work together toward the same common goal – the education of students. Community partners often help with events and programs at the school, while students and staff return the favor with service projects that better the neighborhood and its families.
Our campus strives daily to reflect the tone set by the life of our campus’ namesake Mrs. Alice Alexander, a local education pioneer. Mrs. Alexander’s life and that of her family members is intertwined in the history of Denton and the integration of our school system. Upon her passing in 2007 at 100 years of age, she was remembered for “furthering the cause of ethnic harmony” and “being a vivacious leader with an influence on her students.”
Denton ISD stands committed to naming our facilities after local icons who champion public education. To that end, Alexander Elementary panthers are encouraged each day to embrace the school’s motto “Learners Today, Leaders Tomorrow.”
Denton ISD is committed to consistent and open communication with parents and the community. The district is now requires all teachers and staff to maintain a standard set of information across all campuses as part of the district’s web presence.
For the 2018-2019 school year, students, parents and staff will notice changes based on building improvements and training with regard to school safety processes. Details include an awareness campaign as well as the installation of secure entry systems at every campus.
