• Principal’s Message

    Welcome to Leighton Elementary School’s website.  It is with great pride and privilege that I serve you and your students as the instructional leader of Leighton Elementary.

    I am looking forward to a promising school year and welcome opportunities to meet and work with you and your children throughout the 2023-2024 school year!

    Leighton Elementary is a diverse school with approximately 392 students in pre-K through sixth grades.  Our campus is located in Leighton, Al, and possesses a small neighborhood feel as students, staff, parents, and the surrounding community partner together to ensure the educational success of all of our students.

    Leighton Elementary School’s teachers and support staff are dedicated to preparing its students to become college and career-ready by providing a quality education for all children.  Our goal is to offer your children the best possible education in a positive and safe learning environment. Our staff encourages students to hone in on their strengths and encourages problem-solving and critical thinking skills to become creative and independent thinkers with strong moral characters.  

    As a staff, we strategically focus on student learning and provide many opportunities for our students to increase their academic performance through high expectations, comprehensive programs, interventions, and effective teaching. A diverse array of strategies and activities are implemented to appeal to all learning styles so that all learn effectively and reach their potential.

    Leighton Elementary takes great pride in establishing an atmosphere that invites its valued stakeholders to be a part of the educational process.  Throughout the year, parents are provided many opportunities to participate in the education of their children.  We welcome your attendance at school events and encourage your participation by volunteering at our school. You are a valued member of our team.

    Communication and teamwork are of the utmost importance at Leighton Elementary. I hope you find our site to be a useful and informative resource to stay connected to your child's school throughout the school year.  Please check it frequently for important updates.  In addition to our website, school information is made available to our families through our school website, phone messages, social media, teacher communications, and the school marquee.  

    Let’s show our Tribe Pride and make this a great school year!!

    Sincerely, Vickie Osborn
