The official date of the foundation of the school yet can not be found in historical sources. However, already in 1683 it was marked in Swiss maps next to the Big road, opposite to the Ikšķile Manor and Church. During the war times in Ikšķile, the school which was located next to the road was  destroyed for several times. From time to time the school was located in a house of a sexton or a bell-ringer, and sometimes even in a peasant's room. In 1966, Elkšņi School joined the 8-year-old Ikšķile School in the centre of the town. Nowadays in the old premises of Elkšņi School the free school of Ikšķile is located, which provides alternative national primary education based on a pedagogic methodology using individual teaching methods.
