District Overview

  • Administration Building The Lewis-Palmer School District is situated at the north end of El Paso County, north of the United States Air Force Academy. Serving over 6000 students, the district encompasses Palmer Lake, Monument, Woodmoor and the northern part of the Black Forest area.

     

    In addition to the core curriculum, all district schools offer programs to meet the unique learning needs of students who qualify for Special Education services, Gifted and Talented services, and for those students who speak languages other than English.

     

    Indicators of student learning, as measured by state and national tests, confirm that District 38 ranks among the highest in the state. Our high school graduation rate is over 95%, and approximately 85% continue on to college.

     

    The district provides bus transportation and a hot lunch program, and school-sponsored athletic programs are available for boys and girls at the middle and high school levels.

    Previous Community Open House Information
    Lewis-Palmer School District, RTA Architects, and Western Demographics hosted community open houses on February 13 and March 14 in order to provide opportunities for the community to hear demographic growth data about the Tri-Lakes area and its impact on Lewis-Palmer School District.

    This past spring, Lewis-Palmer School District contracted with RTA Architects to provide long-range facilities planning and consultation services in light of the significant growth in the Tri-Lakes area. RTA recently completed a physical assessment of LPSD buildings and a demographic study. These open houses provided the opportunity for the public to hear these initial findings and provide feedback.

    This is the PowerPoint presentation shared at both community open houses.

    More information regarding the February 13 presentation is available here.
