5/16/2012parentI see there are only positive remarks on here, I love Lawton but have to say I am not happy with the way things are handled with difficult students, My child is not a bad child but I feel year after year the teachers lose patients with ADHD children and will look for ways to make you feel like a failure then encourage you.
4/23/2012otherI went to this elementary school as a child. I just wanted to post here that Mrs. Knott, my 4th grade (1984 or so) teacher, was the first teacher to recognize my writing ability. She told me that I should be a writer when I grow up, and now that's what I do for a living. This same encouragement was followed by Mrs. Schmidt in 5th grade. I never found such amazing teachers in my entire education as I did here, but it made a lasting impression in my life. I just found my photo of Mrs. Knott and that encouraged me to post this review here. I hope your child has as amazing an experience at this school as I did.
2/12/2012parentWe have moved around a lot due to our job, and this is our 5th school in 6 years. We hope to stay here for the next 5 years so both of our children can finish out elementary school at Lawton. This is--by far--the best school we have been in. The teachers are excellent. They really care about our kids and go above and beyond to challenge and encourage them. My children love school and are excited about learning. The principal and assistant principal are very approachable and are involved with the students and families. They provide excellent leadership. I am thrilled with the friends my kids have made, too. If I were awarding grades, I would give Lawton an A+!

9/24/2009parentLawton is a fabulous school with the BEST teachers, students and administrators. Our kids love to go to Lawton because it combines learning with many fun PTA sponsored activities as well.

4/2/2007parentLawton is an excellent school. We have been extremely happy with the teachers. The PTA is the best! I truly regret not becoming more involved with the PTA at Lawton. They seem like a great group of women and they run many committees that enrich the children's lives at Lawton. If you are new to Lawton - call the President and volunteer. You will regret it if you don't.

12/10/2005parentParent involvement is great at this school. Principal is visible around campus and in the classroom. Principal has also been seen at student after school events to support students and staff
7/31/2005parentLawton provides a well rounded education for all students. Lawton has programs for PE, Art, Music, Technology and a well stocked Media Center for research. Parent volunteering is encouraged, and parents are active in all aspects of the school. There is a new principal for 05-06, and positive changes are expected. My child has been happy at Lawton, and we have felt comfortable on campus at the many activities provided for the families.
5/31/2005parentMy child has learned to love learning, is continuously challenged and exposed to new and very cool experiences and activities, and thrives in this wonderful school community. It is much more than I ever expected or hoped for.
10/31/2004parentI've had a positive experience at our school overall. The PTA and volunteer activity is superb and basically runs the school. Our principal is retiring as of May 2005 and has not shown me any kind of innovative thinking or proactive leadership in the seven years I've seen. (When presented with a situation, he chooses a solution that involves no work for him, and the least number of parents on campus. I've never seen him visit a classroom except on Open House night.) Most of the great enrichment programs available to the students are run by PTA. I've had one disappointment, and that is with the gifted student program and/or teacher. The curriculum lacks any depth and the teacher is harsh, very sarcastic and has made many of her students cry and drop out of the program eventually. She retired a long time ago, but she still shows up for work!
6/15/2004parentLawton is a terrific environment for a child to develop. Everyone on campus is concerned with the growth of each individual. This school also has amazing parent involvement.
2/22/2004otherMy eldest granddaughter is now in 6th grade at Jackson Heights and is a straight A student. Her Lawton years were wonderful! My youngest is in 3rd grade at Lawton and is doing extremely well. Both girls love Lawton and I do too. Never did I have a worry after I dropped them off for school; I knew they would receive lots of TLC along with an above average elementary education. One hears all sorts of negatives about government schools, however, our family tends not to think of Lawton as a government school but as a center rich in educational opportunity. Lawton is a A+ school in our book; the administration and teaching staff come none better. Kudos to Lawton!
