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.
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.

Viking students won the Elementary Division (6th grade was in Elementary) and won three of the four possible awards in the 7-8 grade division. EMS also won a Judge's Choice award that judged K-12 students artwork. The students are taught by EMS art teachers Nichole Lorenzen and Clifton Harper.
