All About LES

Lavonia Elementary School is located at 818 Hartwell Road. It has been at its present location since 1992, after many years at 84 Hartwell Road. The school building is dedicated in honor of Lavonia resident and former Governor, Ernest Vandiver. LES serves grades K-5 and has a current enrollment of 520 students. Currently, no portable classrooms are in use. In 2007, the Governor's Office of Student Achievement recognized LES as a Silver Award Winner for Greatest Gain Students Meeting and Exceeding Standards. In addition, LES is recognized as a Georgia School of Excellence, a Title I Distinguished School for nine years and has made AYP ten years in a row. Eighty-four percent of LES faculty hold advanced degrees. The school has an active and growing PTO. We have many parent volunteers in both the classrooms and in the media center. A Parent Resource Center is also available, which includes free materials for parents.
