In 1961 a new elementary school was opened in Lawton. It was named Eisenhower after the 34th president of the United States. The first principal was Miss Monta Collins and there were 500 students.
Currently, we have 19 classrooms, a library, a music room, a gymnasium, and a cafeteria/auditorium.
Eisenhower Elementary School is a student-centered community that strives to provide a strong academic curriculum for its multicultural student population. We are proud to say that our students consistently perform at or near the top range in most subjects on the OSTP yearly.
Our EES staff prides itself in ensuring that our students have as many, if not more, educational opportunities as possible. We are committed to maintaining the highest standards so that there will be no shortage of opportunities for your student to feel challenged on a daily basis with high quality instruction. These are exceptional times right now. Please know that EES staff is committed to providing strong rigorous and relevant learning experience for your child that is safe and supports their social and emotional growth.
"Today . . . I will do more than I have to do;
I will treat others as I want to be treated,
And I will try to become a better person".

SCHOOL SONG LYRICS
Here's to the school where we like to go
Here's to the school that's the best we know;
Eisenhower, we love you,
Hip, hip, hooray for the gray and blue.
We have all the other schools beat by a mile,
And we've had it on them for a good long while;
So let's be up and doing, it's our best rule,
Cheering loud and long for Eisenhower school. YES. IKE!
