Built in 1951, Hawthorne Elementary is the oldest of Albert Lea's elementary schools. Hawthorne Elementary School currently serves approximately 440 Pre-school through 5th grade students. Our school is founded on building relationships with students and families using Responsive Classroom practices. In addition to a rich social-emotional foundation, children engage in varied learning experiences in literacy, math, social studies, and science. Many of our teachers and staff provide after school clubs and services to extend learning beyond the traditional school day.
