Lonsdale is a multi-cultural elementary school located in Knoxville, Tennessee. We are both a Project GRAD school as well as a Community School. All of our 375 students are free lunch recipients. As a Community School, we partner with over 30 outside agencies and non-profits to provide programming and services for our children as well as their parents. The biggest need for our community is an increase in the availability of technology for both our students and parents. Our families and staff do a great job of overcoming cultural and language barriers that could be a hinderance to the mission of our school. Our families have begun to embrace the cultural differences by celebrating our diversity through heritage dinners, language classes, and joint community improvement projects. Our mission statement describes us best. "Lonsdale is a safe place where we are all unique. We are life-long learners. We are responsible, respectful citizens and community leaders. We are a Project GRAD school of EXCELLENCE!"

The teachers and staff are happy and enthusiastic, and the children, while mostly from disadvantaged homes, have spunk and joy, especially when they're in school.
