The people of Alexander have provided education for their children in an organized fashion since 1822. This education was within one-room schools from 1822 until 1957. For the next 30 years, all students attended a consolidated school at the corner of Cooper Road and Arm Road.
Then, in 1987, the Alexander Elementary School was built on Route 9. A few years later, additional classroom and library space was added. Today, the Alexander Elementary School still serves the communities of Alexander, Cooper, and Crawford for grades PK-8.
The AES mascot is the Panther and school colors are Black, Gold, and White.
In 2010, Alexander joined Alternative Organizational Structure (AOS) 77, a school district that encompasses the eastern and coastal Washington County towns of Alexander, Baring, Charlotte, Crawford, Dennysville, Eastport, Lubec, Pembroke, and Perry. Prior to this, Alexander was part of School Union 106 which included Alexander, Baring, Calais, Crawford and Robbinston.
