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.

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.
