About Our Schools


Overview

Pillow Elementary School, located in the north Austin, opened in 1969 and was named for Dorinda Josephine Pillow, who taught in Austin for 47 years. Pillow Elementary is part of the Anderson family of schools, which focuses on world languages and cultures. First- through fifth-graders are exposed to Spanish, German, French and Latin at each grade level as part of the school’s focus on world cultures.

In addition to a rich basic curriculum, Pillow Elementary offers a variety of enrichment programs and after-school activities for a wide range of student interests. As part of yhe Wild About Reading program, the school community collects thousands of books to distribute to students for continued reading throughout the summer. The school’s Eco-Action Team of students, staff and community members work on ecology-related projects with such topics as healthy living, energy, biodiversity and recycling. Students are encouraged to participate in physical activities outside of class such as Marathon Kids, the Austin Association for Physical Education and Recreation's Cross Country Run, and the Jr. Dillo Run.
