Lew Wallace Elementary School

Lew Wallace is an elementary school serving grades K-5 in Learning Zone 1.

Lew Wallace is a small school with tight connections between staff, students, families, and our surrounding downtown community. We work together to create a positive environment of caring and appreciation that is responsive to individuals’ needs. We take care of each other, providing food bags for hungry families, clothes and shoes for those who need it, and academic support for struggling students. In this nurturing school community, students are supported to become independent life-long learners and challenged with high expectations.
