I am delighted to welcome you to Lawrenceville Elementary School (LES). Our school provides extraordinary learning experiences for students ranging from PreK through third grade.  Our instructional program is stimulating and comprehensive.  Our program of studies includes language arts, math, science, social studies, art, PE, health, music, computer literacy, robotics/technology, environmental/gardening, and character education. 


Our school motto is, “Do Your Best, Nothing “LESs!”  At LES, our goal is to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world by providing a solid foundation. Each of our highly qualified and dedicated staff members works every day to accomplish this by promoting collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving in a supportive and nurturing environment.


We are proud and honored to be recognized as a National School of Character and you will often see our C.A.R.E. Kids performing good deeds in our school, district, and throughout  the community at large.  We are home to the beautiful, bountiful and award-winning LES Garden.  Our students plant, grow, harvest, and eat the food grown right here in our own “backyard”.  Lawrenceville Elementary is also the home of the first elementary Makerspace in Lawrence Township Public Schools.  In our Makerspace, our students collaborate in innovative STEAM-based learning activities while reflecting on concepts such as “failing forward” and perseverance. Our school is truly a special place to learn and grow.
