Rockwell Elementary School
Rockwell Elementary is one of two elementary schools in the Spanish Fort High School feeder pattern. Opening August 1997, the school is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The school opened with an enrollment of 450 and now exceeds 1,000 students. Due to the area’s tremendous population growth, rezoning has occurred three times since 1997. A 20-room wing and new cafetorium (cafeteria with a stage) was added in 2014 and 2016, respectively.
Rockwell Elementary promotes strong academic instruction resulting in high levels of student achievement.

Through its partnership with the Mobile Symphony Orchestra, additional music instruction is provided to students. Spanish Fort’s 3 mil tax initiative has allowed for extensive reading and math intervention, STEAM/Robotics instruction, and a many other enrichment opportunities Parent involvement is very strong, receiving tremendous support from the Parent Teacher Association.
