Open Quote I worked there 11 years ago. The principal was rude and unprofessional. She should not have been allowed to work with kids. Luckily, she is not there anymore. Close Quote

Open Quote Dear School District,

I am a proud parent of my son attending john W Lawton elementary school. My son first attended in January 2010 school year. I honestly reluctantly wanted to enroll my son in the public school system due to past horrible experiences my older daughters witnessed. I began enroll all my children in catholic school environment, however due to an family emergency we relocated in the Lawton school district area and I received high appraisal from my highly professional co-workers and health professionals about Lawton academic , professional and structured children first environment. I was very highly impress with the with the teachers overall curriculum and my son reports daily that he loved the school overall. I was very impress with the Home and School involvement and particularly ex-principal Ms. Usely put my faith back in the Philadelphia school district academic capabilities and overall well being of children. Thank you Lawton school from appreciative parent. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
