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.
