Welcome to the Lawndale Elementary School District. We are in the heart of the South Bay, strategically located 15 minutes from LAX, 15 minutes from the beach and 15 minutes from downtown LA. We are a Preschool through 8th grade student-centered, diverse, elementary school district serving over 6000 students with amazing academic results despite limited resources.
Parents, teachers and school leaders consistently work together to encourage students to achieve the high expectations set before them. Students learn in clean, state of the art classrooms with 100% of highly qualified teachers, and we are proud to say that our district exceeded the State's academic performance expectation by scoring 808.
Our District is a community in which we are all scholars and all teachers, working together to spark a life-long love for learning. We are fortunate to partner with over 80 community agencies, service organizations and individuals to ensure that our students are prepared for their choice of colleges and/or careers.
At Lawndale Elementary School District, we are committed to ensuring that every student achieves academic success!
