El Rodeo Elementary

Beginning Fall 2024, El Rodeo will serve students in Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.


El Rodeo de Las Aguas Elementary School, as it was originally named, has a rich history of expansions and renovations. Its initial construction in 1927 was designed by Austin, Ashley & Hudson. In 1934, El Rodeo required earthquake renovations. W.A. Hudson was again the architect of record. Various additions in the 1960s required the school to continuously adapt to accommodate the growing student population and evolving needs. Some of the additions included a gymnasium, a new shop, and music rooms all designed by William Shinderman. In the latter 1960s, Maurice H. Fleishman designed a three-story structure and additional classrooms.

 Now, with its expanded facilities and updated amenities, El Rodeo is poised to continue serving its community effectively for many years to come.
