Brand Statement

Leinkauf Elementary School provides students with more interdisciplinary programs than any other school in Mobile County. We do this through our Digital Literacy classes; which includes one-to-one student technology usage in grades 3-5 and a school-wide BYOD program. Talents Unlimited Instruction promotes critical thinking and student inquiry. Leinkauf models The Ron Clark Academy program through our Leinkauf Houses to promote academic scholars, responsibility, leadership and respect for self and others. Leinkauf’s Prepared for Life afterschool and summer program is funded by the 21st CCLC program. Prepared for Life provides STEM activities, recreational activities, art, choir, theater and athletic clubs.

For students, Leinkauf Elementary School provides more interdisciplinary programs among all schools because of our Digital Literacy classes, Talents Unlimited Instruction, Leinkauf Houses and STEAM initiative.
