Superintendent Andrew "Andy" Almos

Greetings,

It is an honor to serve as superintendent of East Central Schools. Our school district is dedicated to providing educational experiences that prepare students to be college and career ready. We offer college courses in partnership with Lake Superior College, Fond Du Lac Tribal Community College, and Pine Technical & Community College. Students can graduate from East Central Schools having completed two years of college without ever leaving our campus. Additionally, our students can choose from a variety of elective offerings and the district remains committed to maintaining these elective choices.

East Central is a school district focused on the achievement of all the students we serve. Students are educated in modern facilities by highly qualified teachers.  The school building was erected in 2004 and has up-to-date technology including computer labs, building-wide wireless internet access, student iPads in preschool through grade 4 and Chromebooks in grades 5-12. Our technology initiative is meant to prepare students to function in a 21st century world.   

East Central students have opportunities to participate in a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Our athletic programs include football, volleyball, cross country, basketball, hockey, baseball, softball, golf, track, and trap shooting.  Students can also participate in band, choir, theatre, and yearbook. The district’s award winning drama program is second to none. I encourage everyone to come and see a performance, you’ll be glad you did! East Central’s indoor and outdoor facilities are some of the finest around - gymnasiums, baseball & softball diamonds, and a football/track stadium are all on one campus. Our beautiful auditorium hosts musicals, plays, and concerts throughout the year. Every East Central student participates in swimming in our wonderful swimming pool housed within our school building.  

Our school district is an institution of life-long learning. Our community education program offers a variety of courses for anyone interested. There is something for everyone! Contact the community education office if you are interested in participating and/or teaching a course. 

I am proud of our school district and the communities we serve. Thank you for visiting our website. Feel free to contact me anytime with questions about our school district.

Go Eagles!
