Welcome to Akers Elementary School
Admiral Akers School is nestled within the Lemoore Naval Air Station and was built in 1963 to service the children of military families. The school acknowledges the importance of a student’s academic success and appreciates the importance of a student’s social and mental well-being. Teachers, administrators, and staff are all dedicated to providing a warm and challenging learning experience for the children.
The faculty and staff at Akers School believe that education is a cooperative effort among home, school, and community. Our major goal is to prepare students to become responsible citizens and productive members of society. We believe all children are capable of learning. Akers children will be provided with an environment that is safe, caring, friendly, and educationally inspiring. Our school climate will encourage openness, trust, self-esteem, self-motivation, respect for self and respect for others. It will help children achieve social, academic, and physical excellence and allow students to succeed within their limits.
