    Our family loves Lake Park Elementary!!! My children have gone there for a few years and have excelled. The staff is great and very helpful. I am at ease knowing that my children are well taken care of. My husband and his brothers also went to Lake Park and they recall fond memories from there more than any other school that they attended growing up. If you have new students there is no better family for them to be a part of more than Lake Park Elementary School.

    The special ed department for kids with disabilities is amazing. We moved up from Texas and they assessed Texas iep and considered implementing the good things from it. My sons cognitive skills were about a 2 1/2 year old level at the age of 4. They transitioned him out of special ed within one year. Unfortunately we moved and he will no longer be attending this school. But I wish we could have stayed here.

    The teachers at this school seem to enjoy teaching and try hard to teach all of their students. However if your child has a hard time learning to read they don't seem to have the knowledge or resources to help. Eligibility and IEP meetings become tense if you start asking too many question looking for details on their curriculum or instruction practices. I was actually told at one such meeting that we should not focus on academics right now. Needless to say I read them the riot act.

    Our son a third grader has attended Lakepark Elementary since his first day at kindergarten. We feel our child is in a positive fun protective environment. He is reading above his grade level and continues to progress. Why? The teachers at Lakepark they interact wonderfully with their students. The principle knows all the children and they respond to him in a positive manner.

    We love Lake Park! We had our son transferred to Lake Park because it is a smaller school the staff are some of the most caring people we've met and there is a huge amount of parental involvement. Everyone knows everyone and is so supportive. We love Lake Park and will continue there as long as they will have us.

    My daughter has attended this school since pre-k. She is now starting 3rd grade. The teachers and staff are wonderful with the children. It is a safe environment for the students. The staff are attentive to each students needs. I would not have my daughter in any other school! Keep it up Lake Park!
