    My school is A R Lewis in Pickens S .C. Such a great school. My Student is in first gade with less than fifteen students in her class. We had open house grandparents day and a principal with a great staff including vic principal teachers and co workers who all contribute to every event. When visiting the school everyone treats you like family. This school takes extra preacautions to insure your child is safe at school.Children cannot be picked up at school without proper identification you provide when you register your child for school.Teachers and staff insureing children getting into cars with parents or person who has permission to pick thhhat child up at end of day. This school is one of a kind in this county and in the state of South Carolina we are so proud of it and the children who leave this place great students ready to face the next years in middle school and on to high school then college. Look back at this school that started them on this great journey of thir life. Looking at this school right now we are proud parents.grandparents and community of A R Lewis and every one who has a part in making it the great school it is today..Every school has needs so do we.

    I believe that this is a wonderful school and that all the teachers really care about their students. The only thing I have found to believe is that this is not really a school for the average parent because there is constantly something going on that cost money and unless you are part of the P.T.A you aren't allowed to go on field trips. But besides that I would recommend this school to anyone because my kids have learned so much and that's all that matters to me!! I know because of this school my kids are off to a great start to life!!

    AR Lewis Elementary School is a great school because of the dedicated and qualified teachers and their interests in the students well-being and their success as they continue on in life. The teachers also believe in discipline as well as working with the parents to help keep their children in line with rules and regulations. I would recommend this school to anyone.
