FAQs

School History

Over seventy years ago, Lawton Alternative School was founded in the growing Sunset District.   The school was built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA), which provided work to nearly eight million Americans during the Great Depression.  Most of the school buildings in the area were built by the same architects in an Art Deco influenced style known as "Streamline Moderne."  This type of style emphasized curving forms, long horizontal lines, and sometimes nautical themes.  Source: Sunset Beacon.

Today, Lawton is a Kindergarten through 8th Grade school with an open enrollment which allows students from any San Francisco neighborhood to apply to attend.  Our school-wide priority is to improve the academic performance of all our students by developing each student's learning potential through a wide variety of challenging programs that provide them with as many active learning and problem solving to reach their full academic potential.  We endeavor to become better citizens through adherence to our motto, "Respect, Responsibility, and Compassion."  Our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is committed to fostering a strong sense of community and raising funds to support the classrooms with materials, enrichment programs, and extracurricular activies.

Lawton is a California Distinguished School 1986, 1993, 2002. 

Giving to Lawton

There are a variety of ways you can support Lawton  Three very easy things that you can do right now are to view teacher proposals on donorschoose.org, sign up for eScrip, and bring in some Boxtops.

Donorschoose

You give to a project, Donorschoose delivers the materials to the class, kids learn and show it in photos and thank-you notes.

eScrip 

eScrip is a resource where participating business partners contribute a percentage of your grocery loyalty cards, credit card, and debit/ATM card purchases to Lawton.       For example, if you register your Safeway Club Card with eScrip, Safeway donates 1% of what you spend per month to the school.  Lawton's Group ID# is 119028715.  

Boxtops 

Next time you go grocery shopping, look for the Box Top logos located on many different products like Cheerios.  If you buy any of these products, all you need to do is clip the tops and leave them  in the PTA cubby in the Lawton main office.
