In 2001, Lewis was recognized as a California Distinguished School for our safe, challenging, and innovative learning environment. Lewis teachers are dedicated to improving instructional practices that will lead to higher student achievement. Our students, parents, and staff are to be commended for improving our Academic Performance Index ranking to a score of 9 (on a scale of 10)! In two years, our API scores have grown dramatically, with most of the gains coming from our African American and Hispanic populations.

We need to refine our instructional strategies to improve all our students achievement in math and reading.
