Lawn Elementary is a part of the Jim Ned Consolidated Independent School District which covers 391 square miles just south of Abilene, Texas, and is comprised of several small communities. Families seeking a smaller school atmosphere for their children move to Jim Ned because of our excellent reputation for both academics and athletics.

Lawn Elementary is a Title I school serving 300 students, preschool children with disabilities (PPCD) through fifth grade. The district programs for PPCD and elementary special education life skills are both housed on the Lawn campus. Our mission is based on the belief that all children can learn and should work toward being responsible citizens. "No Child Left Behind" was the focus at Lawn Elementary long before that phrase gained national attention. The Lawn campus provides a stable, family environment for each child to reach realistic goals and achieve their greatest potential.

Every day our announcements begin with a reminder of the three Rs that our students know by heart: Respect for self, Respect for others, and taking Responsibility for our own actions. Much of our student success is our student's pride to do their best in all areas and the positive, caring attitude nurtured by character education each day from teachers and staff. Jim Ned graduate and current Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy has been an inspiration to many of our students to see that all things are possible with the proper preparation and desire.
