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.

United Way sponsors summer book swap
5/20/15 - United Way of Southwest Oklahoma wants to help stop the "summer slide" struggling readers may experience while not reading regularly during the summer months. Research shows that reading just six books over the summer may keep these children from regressing in their reading ability. For children who do not have access to books during the summer, books will be provided for a "book swap" at 10 LPS summer meal sites this summer. Children can bring a personal book they have already read or out-grown to swap for another book. A summer reading program also is scheduled at the Lawton Public Library.
