Alice Smith Elementary School
Alice Smith Elementary - named after a first-grade teacher who taught in the Hopkins School District for 29 years starting in 1919 - is a school that represents the full cross section of Hopkins' diversity. Students from a variety of backgrounds attend the school, and teachers are focused on helping everyone achieve. The school has many activities for students to participate in beyond the traditional classroom time, such as "Art Adventure," band and orchestra. Technology is important. Every fourth- and sixth-grader receives a laptop for the year under the school's "One-to-One" program. Classrooms have interactive white boards and amplification systems that make it easier for students to hear.
