  • Welcome to Woodlawn


    Woodlawn Elementary School, located on 5.1 acres of land in North Lawrence, has a long history and can trace its roots back to the earliest settlements in the area. Originally named Fifth Ward School, in 1890 it's teachers petitioned to have the name changed to Woodlawn because the building was surrounded by a wooded lawn of elm, birch and walnut trees. The original building burned to the ground in 1923, and a new school, also named Woodlawn, was built in 1924. Woodlawn serves students in grades K-5 including offering a full-day kindergarten program.

    Did You Know? The United States Department of Education has recognized Woodlawn as a National Blue Ribbon School! In addition, the Confidence in Kansas Public Education Task Force awarded Woodlawn its Challenge Award for inspiring high student achievement among populations with high ethnic and economic diversity.
