Welcome from the Principal

Callahan

Dear Parents and Students,

Welcome to Lewis Middle School. We work closely with all students to prepare them for high school and beyond!

Lewis Middle School was recently named eligible by our state superintendent as a California Distinguished School for our safe, challenging, and innovative learning environment. Lewis has also been consistently recognized by the California Business Association as an exemplary school for closing the achievement gap in 2010, 2012 and 2014.

We are located in the beautiful Allied Gardens area in the heart of San Diego. Our mission is to prepare all students academically and socially for high school and beyond by providing a rigorous core curriculum that includes a broad range of electives. Lewis students and staff operate under the three guiding principles of hard work, mutual respect and safety. Whether it's our award winning band, the arts, technology (including our engineering course) or the foreign language of Spanish, we aim to make our school a place that is an academically rigorous and a fun place to be. Lewis' Academic Score (API) is well above the state's goal of 800 and rose from a score of 804 in 2006 to a score of 887 in 2013.

One of Lewis Middle School’s outstanding features is the fact that every classroom in our school has been converted into a 21st century learning environment. All classrooms have been upgraded with interactive, internet accessible teacher whiteboards, quadriphonic sound systems along with a school to home laptop for every student.

If you just moved to our neighborhood recently, you may enroll your children between 8 a.m. and noon any day, or make an appointment by calling 619-583-3233 extensions 2205 and 2230 (Spanish). A list of enrollment requirements is posted in our website in the Attendance/Enrollment page at www.edu.lewis.

Lewis always welcomes and needs your help in a variety of ways throughout the year. Please call the school office at (619)583-3233 extension 2219, if you would like to volunteer. Please also consider becoming a board member in our Foundation, in our SSC or in our SGT.

Our vice principals, Mrs. Vergne and Mrs. Garcia, along with all of our wonderful staff look forward to working together with you and your family. Please visit our website regularly for more details and updated information.

 

Sincerely,
Brad Callahan
Principal, Lewis Middle School
