All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I have had a child at Lewis for the last 5 years. I'm so glad I made this choice. The teachers care about the kids, it's a wonderful community and family atmosphere. We are going through changes, but I'm certain we'll be able to maintain the same caring, community atmosphere as well as striving for academic excellence for each child.

My child attended LOM for 2 years. The teachers were good and did the best they could. What I observed in my childs classroom was that the teacher spent alot of her time having to discipline many of the children and the other (well behaved children) kind of got pushed to the side. In essense more time was spent on discipline than on learning. I don't feel my child learned as much as she could have, or was capable of. And don't get me started on the principal or staff. They were rude and downright snobish!

As a teacher in the same district, I choose to send my children across town to Lewis. My oldest son started in 3rd grade and has gained ground each year. He just graduated and did great on the year end assessments. I have 2 other sons in going in to 2nd and 4th grade and both are excelling in reading and math. My youngest son will attend kindergarten and I know he will do great. Each of my sons have different needs and personalities. All have found success at Lewis!

As a parent of 2 children who have been at Lewis since Kdg I have seen many staff changes, including the principal. Our current principal does her job with the students best interest in mind in every decision she makes. I believe this school has only grown in its decision and desire to be the best open magnet school it can possibly be. I believe my children have had the best teachers and support staff encouraging them to do their best, and I know that they will be better people because of them.

Since the departure of Principal Dave Saunders a few years ago, this school has really lost its focus. I'm not sure what the goal is anymore. If it's to become like any other mediocre elementary school, then sadly, that goal has been met. I don't understand why one would want to change the methods that produced the top scores in the district. I'm just glad my daughter has moved on to middle school.
