  About The School  

Jim Pearson School

          Jim Pearson Elementary School is a public Title I school that serves primary students (PreK-2) who live in the Alexander City School District. Students living outside the district have the opportunity to attend with paid tuition.  Our facility, located on Scott Road, houses 4 Pre-K classes, 14 kindergarten, 14 first grade and 14 second grade classrooms, along with a gymnasium, media center and enrichment classrooms for music, science, art, and technology. Our child-friendly atmosphere hosts a family garden in our courtyard.

          Nestled on several acres along Scott Road, our well-maintained grounds feature many learning habitats, which include a pond, a marsh and wetlands area, and a forest nature/educational trail. Three playgrounds, outdoor classrooms, planted gardens, and many ornamental trees adorn our beautiful campus.

           Jim Pearson Elementary School, which began in 1972, has a long history of excellence in learning. From being named a Blue Ribbon School to our Kindergarten winning the Economics Award for the state of Alabama, our school has always been recognized for student learning. Currently, Jim Pearson is a Leader in Me school and received Lighthouse status. With 100% of highly-qualified teachers, our faculty and staff continue our tradition of excellence by maintaining high expectations with our primary focus on instruction, student learning and leadership.
