Situated on just over six acres of green space in residential Broadview Heights, Lawrence’s Lower School serves nearly 100 students in grades K–6. The 34,000-square-foot, brick building was constructed in 1921 and originally served as an elementary school for the Brecksville-Broadview Heights School District. Lawrence School purchased the building and land in 1986.
Classrooms at the Lower School are especially large and bright, allowing for hands-on learning and movement. All classrooms have updated air conditioning and were outfitted with new furniture in 2019, allowing for flexibility and mobility to help keep students focused and engaged. We understand students need to move in order to learn and our classroom configurations allow for this.
In addition to wide hallways that reverberate with joy and laughter throughout the day, the Lower School includes an art studio, library, gymnasium, computer lab, and playground featuring a jungle gym, GaGa ball pit, basketball hoops, and more.
Also located at the Lower School is the Ethan D. Schafer Center for Learning Differences and a separate modular building that houses the school's administrative offices.
The Lower School is conveniently located within a 30-minute drive of Cleveland, Akron, as well as most Northeast Ohio suburbs. There is access to three major thoroughfares within five miles of the campus: I-77, I-480, and the Ohio Turnpike.
In education, one size clearly does not fit all.
We're committed to reframing the conversation about the way children learn.
