    I have my 2 boys at Lew Wallace and they absolutely love their school. The whole staff know my whole family by face and name it's a very comfortable environment. My 2 boys have flourished especially my kindergartener who is always so excited to learn. I cant wait until my daughter can go to Lew Wallace and recieve the special attention that the whole staff gives to every student there.
