    This school is incredible! My daughter loves herteacher and the parents are very supportive of events. Mrs. Carroll the principal is very loving toward the children but takes a no-nonsense approach to academics. And I love the technology they are using to teach!

    My child absolutely loves this school! Her teacher Ms. Raper is awesome. She challenges her students while showing them how much she cares for them.

    My daughter attended this school for about a year. Our teacher Mrs. Grayson was awesome! Our only problem was trying to get a book that was inappropriate out of our daughter's reach.

    I have a kindergartener at Lawhon and I can't imagine a better school for her to go to.

    My child is in kindergarten at Lawhon. I couldn't have asked for a better experience for his first year of school. All the teachers are very caring. The principal is great with the kids. I wouldn't want him to go anywhere else.
