Welcome to Lawrence Public Schools

At the Heart of Learning

School bells are ringing in the new school year, bringing a feeling of excitement that's at the heart of all learning. No matter how old or young, parent or child, teacher or student - together we develop and learn as a school community. The anticipation and expectation for academic, professional, and personal growth fuels our engine, ignites our spark, and inspires achievement.

Nurturing all those in our care, together on the road of lifelong learning, we embrace all that is developing within and around us. Talents, awareness and identity continually develop as we build human capital for professional success, enhance quality of life, and contribute to the realization of dreams and aspirations.

From season to season the spirit of our Lawrence Family is renewed, and our journey continues with a focus on each and every child.
Wishing you the best school year ever!
