Welcome to Allis Elementary

Where the success of every child matters!

The mission of the staff is to ensure that every student has the knowledge and skills needed for academic achievement and a successful life.

2017 marks our school’s 100th anniversary! Allis is located on Madison’s far east side and proudly educates the diverse community within our attendance area. Allis’ dedicated staff endearingly call our school “The Palace.” We’re committed to developing and sustaining a school environment which encourages individuality and responsibility, celebrates diversity, fosters a desire to learn, and supports every community member to discover and strengthen their skills, tales, and abilities so that each is prepared to be a productive participant in our changing global society.


Collectively, we all work toward improving student outcomes. Our strong teacher teams work with aligned curriculum, resulting in exponential increases in student achievement. Throughout the halls, visitors will hear Wildcat Scholars celebrating their successes, exclaiming how they’ve reached their goals.

Why I Give

When I began as a principal in the district, a representative from the Foundation and I had the opportunity to meet. Her warm welcome coupled with the selfless mission of the organization inspired me to get involved initially. I was then able to see the meaningful contributions the Foundation makes to our schools each and every day, which inspired me to continue my support.


We support the Foundation because we believe in public education. We strongly believe that the public school system is a bedrock community institution that provides opportunity for all children. Through the Foundation’s financial support, many innovative projects that enhance the educational experience of Madison children have begun and been sustained over the years.


As a strong believer in the public school system, I’m convinced that a strong preK-12 program is the way to ensure equitable opportunity for all. The Foundation’s enthusiastic attitude supports promising educational practices and exemplifies philanthropic leadership. It’s a phenomenal ally and advocate of Madison’s schools, and as a high-caliber, well-managed organization, it is richly deserving of our support.
