Lawson Elementary School Reviews

I love lawson and I love johnston schools. I don't want my son anywhere else. Been there, done that. This is where he needs to be. They care about the kids, they learn what they need to, they go do things and are involved in the community. The only reason they don't have 5 starts from me is because a lot of the kids and activities are quite click-ish. A lot of kids are snobby, but we'll deal with it. It's worth it for us.
