At Dr. Charles T. Lunsford School No. 19, we believe a Pre-K through 8th grade school lays the foundation for future academic success and that children flourish in a nurturing and safe environment. At School No. 19, every child contributes to his or her own education and the learning experience of others. Our delivery of instruction encourages students to be risk takers, free thinkers, team players, and active participants in the community. The staff makes a positive difference in the life and development of every child. We believe that together we can foster a school climate where staff and students celebrate learning, growing, and the feeling of family.
