About this school

Pease is an elementary school (K-6) located in the heart of downtown Austin. We offer small class sizes, ethnic and socio-economic diversity, and our own after-school childcare program. We excel at meeting the academic and social needs of all children. We are small enough that your child's name will be known by every teacher and staff member. We've been here since 1876, and are the oldest continually operating public school in the state!
