Welcome to the Lewis County School District website. We hope you enjoy your visit. At Lewis County Schools, we are determined to continue to strive for academic excellence. Over the past several years our entire educational family has worked very hard to provide our children with all the tools essential to achieving at the highest level. Through a total team effort and a progressive, innovative outlook we have continued to make improvement.
I can say without hesitation that Lewis County and Lewis County schools are both exceptional and distinctive in their own right. We are fortunate to have such a dynamic community in which to raise our children. Once again, I hope you enjoy your visit to our website.
