About the school: Leinkauf Elementary School is nestled in one of the Historic Districts in the City of Mobile. It is currently the oldest active elementary school in the State of Alabama. We are known for commemorating the rich traditions of our school and community while offering the most up up-to-date educational initiatives such as Blended Learning, Character Education, and STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, & Math) Programs. These and various other programs are showcased through our Academies of Excellence, a cross-curricular schoolwide initiative used to foster our students' individual talents as well as their educational and personal interests.

Additionally, we have a 21st Century Pre-K Program, Before/After School Care, After School Tutoring, Ukele Lessons (Music), and Therapeutic Art. All classrooms are equipped with 75' ViewSonic Boards, Presentation Pointers, and Document Cameras. We presently have a STREAM Lab, Collaborative Learning Lab, and two (2) Tech Labs equipped with a Swivl Robotic Platform and a 3-D Printer.

Our teaching and learning philosophy encompass three elements.

  1. We provide consistent, intentional, and effective instruction daily because all students are capable of learning.

  2. We love all students with our HEAD (strategy), HEART (passion), and HANDS (actions).

  3. We choose to celebrate PROGRESS and PROFICIENCY because we believe students learn in different ways and at their own pace.

Leinkauf teachers are given weekly opportunities to plan collaboratively, analyze data intentionally, and attend to professional needs objectively. We work tirelessly to create students who are well-adjusted and motivated to achieve at their potential. With the help of many of our Partners in Education, we strive to meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of all Leinkauf students.

An Executive Team serves as champions to all new teachers to the school and the field of education. This support team serves as mentors, coaches, and allies to ensure a teacher's first year is successful.

We are a family of educators who are EXCELLENCE IN THE MAKING.
