About the PTO 


Welcome to the AGS PTO! All parents and legal guardians of AGS students are members of the PTO. The objective of the PTO is to benefit the academic lives of our children by enhancing the relationship between school and home. Since 1978, the AGS PTO has been making a difference in the AGS community. To continue this great tradition, we need your help. As little as two hours of your time can make a huge impact in your child’s educational experience. This brochure details the volunteer opportunities available for this academic year—please take a moment to see how you can help out. 

Our school was named in honor of Miss Alice Gustafson, a prominent Batavian and respected educator.  Born on May 2, 1892, she graduated from Batavia High School in 1911. She was an educator in Batavia from 1922-1956, serving as a teacher at both Grace McWayne School and Louise White School. For the last 18 years of her career she was the principal of Louise White School. Miss Gustafson died on June 12, 1979.

Alice Gustafson School was opened in 1957 and was dedicated on February 9, 1958. Four additions have been made to the original Alice Gustafson School building. The first was completed in 1969, the second in 1989, the third in 2000, and the most recent addition, the district Early Childhood Center, was completed in 2008.

Current enrollment at Alice Gustafson school is approximately 400 students, with a staff of approximately 60 certified and non-certified individuals for the K-12 program.
