Lakewood is a outstanding school! Awesome teachers and families! The teachers staff and parent's are all great! Everyone is involved and really care about the children's all round education. High education and moral standards! Top Notch!
My son has attended this school for the past 4 years and every year I am more and more impressed with our teachers. We have had nothing but excellent teachers with years of experience and a wonderful drive to make education the top priority for the students as well as the parents. Education is the first priority for Lakewood and it shows. We bought a house where we did to be zoned for Lakewood and it was one of the best decisions we could have made for our kids.
We bought a house in this school district specifically so our kids could go to Lakewood. I went to this school as a student and now my kids are students here. This is the best elementary school in the city.
This school teaches poor values and the parents teach poor ethics.
I am a former student and now parent at this outstanding school. I had a great experience at Lakewood that will remain with me for ever and my children are have the same experience. I have one child who just graduated last year 08 and now have one in first grade and two more that will attend in the next four years they have an awsome drama program sign club jump rope and I could go on and on. I would say to anyone this school is for you child even if you have a disabled or deaf child they can attend too the PTA is awsome Staff is very nice and does there job! It is a school that makes a great impact and remains not only with the child but with the whole family it is a very family friendly school your always at home even 30yrs later!
My son was at Lakewood from 1st until part of 3rd grade last year. I relocated out of Modesto intentionally due to quality issues with Lakewood. Yes it has a GATE program (my son participated in it) but there is way too much teaching to the test. Volume of homework does not necessarily mean improved quality of education. Also I found some of the parents to be overly cliquish and focused on material things. There is considerable bullying at the school. Also children that do not fit the 'perfect mode' have a difficult time getting the supplemental help they need.
Great School excellent parent involvement teacher quality I rate A+. Overall I think best elementary school in Stanislaus County. Principal leadership has always been high quality until now. Current principal is not Lakewood quality nor leadership quality.
Great school. Seasoned teachers and great support system provided here for students. Nice upbeat environment and very active parents who participate in their children's needs. Supervisory staff is very nice and principal is very nice and very active in the schools functions. Principal and teachers here really care about the students.
We have had 3 children go thru Lakewood over the last 10 years. Overall the expierence has been good. Parent envolvement is 2nd to none at Lakewood. Only problem I will walk away from Lakewood is their is a big seperation between 'gate' classes and 'regular' classes. Gate teachers are great so if you are fortunate to have a gate kid you will be fine if you have a 'average' or below student he or she will be stuck in combo classes meaning he or she will be in a classroom with 2 grade levels with one teacher. I am finding these students are falling behind other students once they reach 7th grade and beyond.
Best school in Modesto. My 3 children attended there and they are wonderful. Lots of school pride and very safe environment. My kids loved it.
My fourth grader has been at Lakewood since Kindergarten. We have had nothing but the greatest experiences there. The teachers are great the staff is friendly and the pricipal is awesome. The parents are involved and overall a wonderful group of people. Lakewood has the highest API scores in town and I'm proud to say that my child is part of such a great learning environment.
My oldest child and also my self have attended Lakewood Elem. My son has been envolved in all the programs they offer at Lakewood. Such as Jazzy Jump Student Body and Sign Club. He has enjoyed every moment of being a student at Lakewood. Academics 100%.
Excellent clean well-staffed school. Great acedemic programs. Encourages classroom parent helpers.
Lakewood has been an excellent school for my 5 children. The teachers motivated my kids to want to learn to enjoy reading to ask questions to love social studies and math. Parent involvement is high safety has not been a concern.
Lakewood is a wonderful school. Each of my two kids' teachers from K-6 always encouraged my sons to do their own personal best to reach above 'standard' and to love learning. It's an extremely nurturing environment both for the kids and parents. As a parent I always felt welcome and the teachers were always approachable about any issues or concerns I may have had. The only downside to Lakewood is that it may be too 'perfect' -- our junior high isn't nearly as nurturing and welcoming so junior high is a culture shock for the whole family.
