Eanes Elementary is a "Lend a Hand" school. This school-wide theme was inspired by two previous students who wrote a song about students supporting each other to end bullying. Eanes Elementary focuses on teaching student five expectations for "Lending a Hand" (representing the 5 fingers on the hand). These expectations are: Respect, Safety, Responsibility, Integrity and Acceptance. Our mission is to develop the whole child. Focusing on more than just academics, we hope to grow children that have a strong sense of character and social responsibility.

Eanes is the most unique campus of the six elementary schools in Eanes ISD. The school was established on this site about 130 years ago with some of those early buildings still in use. It is said that coming to school at Eanes is like coming to school in a park; the outdoor campus promotes a healthy learning environment. There is even a cemetery in the heart of the campus!

Eanes Elementary has more than 600 students who benefit from a rich experience for children at all developmental levels. Differentiated reading, writing and math instruction occurs at all grade levels. The comprehensive instructional program includes music, art and physical education classes. The use of technology in integrated into as many aspects as possible. The Gifted and Talented program serves students in grades K-5 who qualify in the area of creativity and our Special Education program serves all children with special needs starting at age three.

The 2011 bond program upgraded the school's expansive playgrounds with new, ADA-compliant equipment that benefits all students.
