Maude Rousseau Elementary School was named after C. Maude Rousseau who was a teacher and principal in Lincoln. She was born May 2, 1879 and died February 13, 1961. Miss Rousseau taught at Elliott from 1918-1922. She was an assistant principal and girls advisor at Whittier Junior High from 1922-1926, and was the first principal at Randolph School, where she served from 1926-1947.

Not much is known about Maude Rousseau. Research for Rousseau's 10th birthday celebration turned up the fact that Maude Rousseau liked to cook, so they baked brownies using Miss Rousseau's recipe for the 10th birthday party. The recipe was provided by Anna Zeman, Maude's friend, and a person for whom Zeman School was named.

On March 12, 1963, the board of education approved the name Maude Rousseau for the new school to be built at 33rd and Calvert. At that time, Calvert Street was not even paved all the way. Kingery Construction was low bidder, and thus got the job of building Rousseau School at a cost of under $500,000. The Clark Enersen Partners designed the building.

In 1964, Maude Rousseau School's boundaries started at 27th and Woodsdale, running east of Woodsdale and Melrose to 40th Street, south of 40th Street to the school district's limits, west to 27th Street and north back to Woodsdale.
