    Lewis and Clark (L&C) is located in a south central small town feel neighborhood. L&C has a diverse student population - incomes ethnic talents and abilities. Whether special needs( including autism gifted/talented physically challenged) or your average the staff and support staff are superbly talented in educating- and take pride in knowing each student by name and their special talents and abilities. The test scores are of the best in the area. An active PTA supports provides services fun family events and parental involvement. L&C offers music-orchastra art physical education computer lab after school programming and childcare and breakfast. At L&C character counts and it shows in both the students families and staff. I would highly recommend the school and this neighborhood.
