I've been at lawtell from pre k to 8th grade I loved it there I had my ups and my downs but, it's been a really nice journey and I learned a lot on the way I learned to stay true to myself. to stay away from the mess and, have fun enjoy being a kid while it lasts because once you get to high school it's a whole different story.
