Welcome to South Lawn, where every student SHINES!  Built in 1954, South Lawn Elementary School has long been a fixture of the South Lawn community in southeast Amarillo.  After leaving our hallways, the students of South Lawn move on to Fannin Middle School and then to Caprock High School.  We have a rich history of quality students, instruction, staff, and parent involvement.  Throughout the 50+ years our doors have been open there have been 11 principals, numerous staff members, and thousands of students walking these halls; each stakeholder leaving a legacy of academic and personal achievement.  Currently South Lawn has an enrollment of 420+ students with 50+ caring adults ranging from our teachers to our much appreciated custodial and cafeteria staff.  Below are a few of the GREAT things about South Lawn Elementary School.  I hope to see you soon.
