Welcome to Amos A. Lawrence School!
The Amos A. Lawrence School

The Amos A. Lawrence School, which abuts spacious Longwood Park, serves the Longwood Medical neighborhood and has an internationally diverse population of 580 students. A significant percentage of students, particularly in the lower grades, are Japanese. The system-wide programs offered at Lawrence are the Japanese English Language Learner program and an Intensive Learning Center program. Lawrence was fully renovated in 2003-2004, with additional space added for classrooms, library, and cafeteria.

The mission of the Amos A. Lawrence School is to provide a challenging education to a diverse student body in a structured, nurturing community environment. We support a strong, caring sense of community through Lawrence Community Meeting, a weekly gathering for grades K-5 that enables children and staff to develop a feeling of connectedness to the rest of the school. Community Meeting provides a forum for celebrating learning where students or classes share their work. In grades 6-8, students participate in a weekly advisory program, meeting in small mixed grade groups with an adult advisor. Lawrence also focuses on meeting the diverse learning needs of our students. We motivate students to master the skills of higher-level thinking, communicating, and evaluating choices, and encourage them to grow intellectually, socially, morally, and physically to their fullest potential. Over time, habits of mind are cultivated that include a love of learning, personal responsibility, self-motivation, respect for others, and a desire to serve the community. The staff at Lawrence embodies these expectations by establishing collaborative grade level teams to improve teaching and learning within the framework of high expectations, increased engagement, and equity for all students. A culture of reflective practice for faculty is supported through a Professional Learning Community model.

An active PTO plans a number of events, such as Fall and Spring Picnics, Lawrence Reads, Poetry Night, International Night, Family Fun Night, Book Fair, and the PTO Play to encourage parent participation and nurture a sense of school community. The PTO and the School Council work actively to maintain open communication between parents and the school in the spirit of partnership.
