Ewalt Elementary School is a preK-5 public elementary school and works in cooperation with St. James Catholic School to provide educational services including instrumental and vocal music, computer, art, and special education services.

Ewalt Elementary School was named after Walter and Sidney Ewalt, who raised racing greyhounds where the school now stands. A greyhound statue that once stood in front of the Ewalt home now occupies a place of honor in the school library.

The buidling was built as part of a bond issue that passed September 3, 1992. With this brand new school, Augusta went from having three elementary buildings to having four. Ewalt opened its doors for students in August of 1994 and was officially dedicated September 25, 1994. Ewalt is located in the northeast part of the Augusta community. Click here for map.

As part of a bond issue passed May 6, 2008, Ewalt received fresh flooring and paint throughout; a secure front entrance; and the addition of a multi-purpose room, cafeteria, and four new classrooms that serve double-duty as Ewalt's FEMA-approved storm shelter.

Ewalt Student Council (ESCO) is the only elementary-level student government in Augusta. ESCO was founded in 2003 and continues to be very active, serving the school itself as well as the Augusta community.
