Welcome to Alcott Elementary School!
Alcott Elementary School is located in Riverside, CA and is one of 52 schools in Riverside Unified. It is a public school that serves approximately 800 students in grades K-6. Our mascot is the Alleycat and our school colors are blue and yellow. Built in 1961, Alcott was named in honor of author Louisa May Alcott who wrote one of the most widely read books of the 19th Century, Little Women. In the spirit of Louisa May Alcott, a lifelong learner, our motto is "Learn More, Be More!" 

We provide our scholars with a rigorous, enriching, and engaging learning environment that promotes life-long success.


Every scholar will leave Alcott equipped and inspired to question and contribute to the changing world around them.


The future of our society depends on the citizens we create today!
