At Admiral King, we believe in the T.E.A.M. Approach: Together, Everyone Achieves More. From the moment students arrive each day to the minute they leave, the AKE team works together to ensure all students have someone who cares about them and connects with them in a meaningful way.


At Admiral King Elementary (AKE), we inspire, challenge, and empower our preschool through 5th-grade students through the love of learning. We help them master the basics as they develop their own skills and interests. We promote high expectations while working with our families and the Lorain community to develop students to their full potential.


Admiral King Elementary is named in honor of Admiral Ernest Joseph King, born in Lorain, Ohio, 1878. King was Commander in Chief of U.S. naval forces and Chief of Naval Operations throughout World War II. He masterminded the successful U.S. military campaign against Japan in the Pacific.

In his first address as Commander in Chief of the U.S. Fleet in December of 1941, he is quoted as saying, "The way to victory is long. The going will be hard. We will do the best we can with what we've got. We must have more planes and ships- at once. Then, it will be our turn to strike. We will win time."
