Our School

SCHOOL PRIDE: El Roble is home of the Mighty Oaks. 

STEAM STRONG: Six El Roble teams competed in the Tech Museum's 2019 Tech Challenge. The competition was the culmination of weeks of hard work and collaboration for these future engineers. 

DEDICATED: This school community works together to make El Roble a great place for all students.

TEAM WORK: El Roble's ghost-town float won third place in the 2018 Bonanza Day Parade. 

CREATIVE SPIRIT: The Missoula Children's Theatre was back in spring 2019 to stage "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves." About 60 students produced the complete play — with songs, dances and full costumes — in a school week. 

Home of the Mighty Oaks

El Roble Elementary School was built in the 1960s and is on 10 acres in an established neighborhood adjacent to a park. This neighborhood school is home to about 690 students.

Our dedicated staff provides a well-rounded education to all of our students from transitional kindergarten (TK) through fifth grade. We believe in providing a strong academic program that includes extracurricular activities, enrichment opportunities and intervention services — before, during and after school. We also have a very active Home and School Club that is totally involved with organizing many fun family activities.

SEAL program

The Sobrato Early Academic Language (SEAL) program is expanding to include TK through third grades this year. This intensive program uses thematic units in the areas of social studies and science to teach our students high levels of academic language and numerous opportunities to experience learning through all of their senses.

SEAL teachers will be promoting an environment of joyful learning that you will be able to see in the classrooms and hear about from your children. 

Tech Academy School

This is our second year as a Tech Academy School of Innovation for fourth and fifth grades. We are one of a select few schools in the area be accepted into this program. 

Our fourth- and fifth-grade teachers receive professional development from Tech Academy instructors throughout the year, and they are bringing STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) lessons back to use in their classrooms. The goal is for El Roble to be a model Tech Academy other schools can visit.
