Lawrence Academy Charter School, as you can see is filled with such great diversity and amazing students who have basically built a family here. August 2005 was the first year Lawrence Academy opened. We started as only a middle school with only 6th and 7th grade, in probably the tiniest building in South Florida, with just a few classrooms and not much resources. Something we did have was motivation! Now, seven years later we have a newly renovated building, three stories high and is the first school in the country to partner with one to one learning that gives our student great opportunities to expand their learning through technology.
