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. 

    Please call (719) 488-4700 or explore our website for additional information.

  • False Advertising
    A company called Sports Media Advertising is representing itself as a fundraising organization working with our schools. This company is NOT associated with LPSD38 in any way. 

    If you get calls or requests regarding supporting an LPSD school, please call the school to confirm that the organization is actually working with the school.

    Please share this information.

  • FREE Medical and Dental Care
    The Ronald McDonald Care Unit has begun a new program of bringing their FREE Mobile Care Units directly to schools in El Paso County providing dental and medical services to all children under 21 years of age. These services will be at no cost to the families. The Unit will take insurance and Medicaid, but if for any reason Medicaid or private health insurance would deny the claim, then Peak Vista Community Health Centers will cover the cost and there will be no charge to the families. Parents will need to accompany children under 18 to the unit. 

    More information regarding services and dates here.
