About Us

Our School

Laura L. Allison Elementary School is a cornerstone in the heart of the historic ​Montopolis community in East Austin.

The mission of Laura Allison Elementary is to collaborate with our school community to honor, cultivate, and empower all learners.

Our vision is to inspire all students to reach their maximum potential and discover unique talents and skills. We aim to be a school where students grow and positively impact the world around them.


Our school opened its doors in the fall of 1955 and was named for Laura Louticia Allison, an educator in Austin for fifty years. She taught at Bickler Elementary and Winn Elementary schools and worked tirelessly for students as a classroom teacher and librarian. As a leader among teachers, Laura L. Allison was instrumental in developing the Texas Teacher Retirement System. She was also an active member and President of the Austin Classroom Teachers Association.
