Lawson Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

February 24, 2017 Submitted by a parent
Our experience with this school was disheartening. We moved our child to an expensive private school and our child thrived. Now our kid's around smarter, more affluent kids and loving every second of it. I feel bad for the families who can't afford to leave because a lot of kids are being bullied and scarred here and their parents are helpless to do anything. The kicker was we paid way too much in taxes to support this school when across town the schools were so much better.

I am truly sorry for the poor experience the other parent had - we have had two boys go through Lawson (still one in 5th) and it has been a terrific experience all around. I have been welcomed to be involved in the school, with their education and, when needed, behavior issues. I strongly disagree with their assessment of the principal - she is heavily invested in the well being of the students and staff at Lawson and it shows daily. It sounds like the reviewer's frustration is with the assistance program which Lawson has no control over. As for the 2nd grader who brought a gun to school - the students reported it to the teacher which took a lot of guts to tattle on a classmate. It was then dealt with quickly and effectively.

If given the opportunity to change districts, I would NEVER send my child to this school, again. I can not accurately convey my immense dislike of this school and it's principal. If your child has health issues or disabilities, do not attend this school, as the principal has no intent to provide the educational assistance needed to a child outside the mainstream for educational needs. I can only describe the treatment my 5 year old child received as bullying by her teacher and the principal.

Don't purchase a home in this school district. Everyone who knows better will tell you that Horizon and Beaver Creek are the places to be in Johnston. Here you will find a pervasive atmosphere of bullying -- for both boys and girls -- starting around 2nd or 3rd grade. (In 2013,. a second graded brought a gun to school and not for show-and-tell.) Roughneck parents and inarticulate staff make the place pretty much unbearable if you want to raise your kids in a middle class lifestyle. Here, norms are right out of a truck stop or biker bar. In reputation and performance, Lawson is consistently one of the worst of Johnston schools. Over and over again the corporate families removed their kids from my child's grade (citing the reasons I just mentioned) and then, finally, we did too and haven't regretted it for a second. Don't become a Johnston "East-sider" -- homes on the other side of town cost more per square foot but, ultimately, you won't regret it. Realtors won't tell you this, but now you know.

I swear they put aerosol Prozac in the ventilation system for the staff. They are consistently positive and extremely knowledgable. As foster parents we bring kids in on short notice and they often have a number of learning deficits to address. The staff is quick to respond and very helpful. they've done amazing work!! We've purposely not bought a different house so we can stay in this school's attendance boundaries.
