A Message from the Principal

I feel so privileged to serve the students and families of Lawrence. As a member of the community, Arlington Gator alum and Lady Lancer, this work is super personal to me as I know firsthand how critically important it is for our students to receive a rich and full education. I am excited for what every new day will bring and look forward to building connectors between our teachers, parents and broader school community.  – Best, Ms. Quiles
