ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
At Eisenhower Middle School, our mission is to teach the whole child to become a caring, successful, and informed citizen through a partnership involving students, staff, parents, and community. We are dedicated to providing a safe, stimulating, and developmentally appropriate learning environment where each student may enhance academic skills, build self-reliance, and strengthen a sense of responsibility to self and others as foundations for future success.
Eisenhower Middle School annually educates approximately 1,000 ethnically diverse students in grades six through eight. Located on the west side of Lawton, EMS is the oldest middle school in Lawton. The school boasts a very proud tradition which is evident as you walk through the school. Several extra-curricular activities and clubs meet regularly at EMS. FCA meets each Wednesday before school, and Chess Club meets each Monday after school. See those organizations' pages for more information. Please click on the links at the top of the page to get information on specific clubs and activities. Our school uses a wide variety of cutting edge teaching techniques as well as traditional teaching methods.
In Their Element
Students in Ms. Smith's 8th grade science class recently completed a wall-sized hands-on periodic table to reinforce a unit on the elements and their properties. Students were assigned an element and asked to create a comprehensive information sheet for their element. The sheets, which are color-coded to represent different groups, were then assembled according to the actual structure of the Periodic Table of Elements and put on display on the classroom wall.

LPS Shared Professional Ideals Poll
Viking stakeholders, please participate in our Lawton Public Schools Shared Professional Ideals Poll. This poll is the result of input from community members, educators, parents, and members of business and industry. It is important for the community to identify the values and attributes important to us all -- so we can reinforce and model those values in our schools.
