Reinhardt Elementary, a state historical landmark, began as a small frame schoolhouse that served the children of early settlers near the farm of John Chenault. After the Santa Fe Railroad built a line in the area and erected a depot in the 1880’s, a town emerged and was named Reinhardt, for Dallas merchant Isadore Reinhardt. As the town grew, so did the need for a larger school. After the Casa Linda neighborhood was developed in the 1930’s, a larger Reinhardt Elementary School was built at its current site. Reinhardt Elementary School was designated a historical marker by the state of Texas in 1994. The current school has buildings that were constructed in 1941, 1952, 1961, and 2004.

    Core Values

    Growth Mindset: 

    We are learners. We always seek to improve and ask our peers for feedback. When feedback is given, we embrace it. To be the best version of ourselves, we have difficult conversations and embrace change.

    High Expectations: 

    If we believe it, we can achieve it! This is true for all of our students and our staff.  We set high goals and work relentlessly to pursue them because our students deserve it.

    Inspiring Relationships: 

    Students will always remember a teacher that inspired them and took the time to get to know them. People who listen and are there for others are individuals that everyone wants to be around. We aspire to develop meaningful relationships with each human being.


    We believe students deserve to grow up in a world that values truth, honesty, and justice. We are committed to creating a learning environment that models and teaches the fundamental values of integrity: Respect, Responsibility, Honesty, Fairness, and Trustworthiness.
