El Rancho School is a private, coeducational preschool and elementary school founded in 1961. We operate as a nonsectarian school, serving students who are two-years-old, through the sixth grade. In August of 2016 El Rancho will grow to include 7th and 8th grade. The park-like campus is located in a residential area of Carmichael at the eastern end of El Camino Avenue. Towering trees shade the play areas, the blacktop, lawns and colorful flowerbeds. Many of the classrooms are adobe brick buildings in the style of the California missions.
