    This is the BEST school in Akron area. The teachers are the BEST and the small class size dont even come close to the new LRC schools around this area. The PTA offers family after school activities such as an ART SHOW DINNER WITH SANTA and MOVIE NIGHTS for the whole school to attend. This school has it all over the new LRC schools around!!!!!

    I am very disappointed in the PTA President and anyone who supports her decision on 'one parent allowed' to attend PTA functions.

    My son goes to Lawndale and I love it. The best part of it is the small size of the classes. My son gets all the attention that he needs.

    Small school smallish class sizes teachers that actually love what they do. Mr Shaw was a wonderful principal and in the beginning I had my own misgivings about his replacement Mrs. Ritch but after one meeting with her my misgivings were a thing of the past. Highly recommend this school wish my daughter was still an elementary school child.

    This is the greatest school. The only thing I really like about the area. Great teachers and students. Nothing but good things to say about it.
