About Us

Lois E. Borchardt is located in the neighborhood adjacent the intersection of Harney Lane and Hwy 99.
We're a K-6 elementary school, currently with 854 students.  Our 2008-2009 API hit 803!
Come visit us at 357 Culbertson Way in Lodi.


The Lois E. Borchardt Elementary School staff is working to make this school the "Best School in the World." We want this school to be a safe environment for children and adults to learn and grow. Parents are an important part of what happens on campus. They are lifelong teachers and advocates for their children. Staff looks for them to be supportive, involved, and informed. This can best occur if the communication between staff and parents is current and effective. All members of the Lois E. Borchardt Elementary School staff are lifelong teachers and mentors. Each adult is a positive, enthusiastic, caring individual with team spirit.

The curriculum is just one piece that holds all of us together. All members of the Lois E. Borchardt School Community are Lifelong Learners. Our curriculum is driven by District Standards. We want our students to be critical thinkers, problem solvers, and responsible citizens. Staff continues to be involved with trainings that provide the best teaching strategies. The school also works to ensure that parents understand the curriculum being used and teaching strategies being employed.

At Lois E. Borchardt Elementary School we believe in creating an environment in which laughter abounds, risk takers feel safe, and respect for all runs rampant. We believe that the educational atmosphere for this development requires the highest standard. It is our goal to foster confident, caring, and productive individuals who strive for their personal best in all that they do.



Watch Dogs (Dads of Great Students) is an innovative program focusing on education and safety in schools by using the positive influence of fathers and father-figures for a two-fold purpose.

  1. To provide positive male role models for the students, demonstrating by their presence that education is important.
  2. To provide extra sets of eyes and ears to enhance school security and reduce bullying.

Fathers, stepfathers, grandfathers, uncles, and father-figures are asked to spend at least one day at their student's school volunteering.  They will support the school through:

monitoring the school property, working one-on-one or in small groups, reading, using flashcards, helping with homework, refereeing games, listening ears, or whatever else needs to be done to PLANT SEEDS OF SUCCESS in the lives of the students.
