We are excited to have you visit our site and learn more about our district. Whether you are new to Lawton or preparing to transition your family here, I want to personally welcome you to Lawton Public Schools! 
Selecting a school can be exciting as well as nerve-racking. We would love the opportunity to talk with you and see how we can best support and serve your student. If you cannot find something on our website, please reach out by emailing and one of our team members will be in contact with you.
Comprised of 27 educational sites in the heart of Southwest Oklahoma, Lawton Public Schools (LPS) is the premier school district operating on four guiding Principles: Preparing Life Ready Graduates; sharing professional ideals; promoting healthy lifestyles; and advocating communication, collaboration and transparency.
