Creating the Leaders of Tomorrow
Lawton Academy provides a differentiated curriculum aimed at meeting the needs of gifted students. Classes are designed to engage students in meaningful research, to develop problem-solving strategies, and to promote critical and creative thinking through a rigorous curriculum that not only satisfies their intellectual curiosity, but also creates the opportunity for maximizing potential. Students at Lawton Academy are required to explore the arts and academics fully, with participation in advanced-level classes and fine arts (music, art, technology, public speaking/theater) being required of all students. Being identified as a "gifted learner" is not necessary for admission. Many of our students are self-motivated learners who enjoy the opportunity to work alongside others committed to the learning process.

School T-shirt Orders are In!
If you ordered a school t-shirt or hoodie, your children are bringing them home today. If you ordered too small or too large, we apologize. The only thing we can do is buy it back from you. Sorry!
Change to Tuck Shop Procedures for Elementary
We made a change to Tuck Shop a couple of weeks ago by having the kids order their treats. It takes student council a lot of time to fill those orders, though. So, from now on, we will take orders Monday—Thursday for Friday’s delivery. If you allow your child to buy from Tuck Shop, please send the money with them on Monday—Thursday.
