i am very sad that the school is being worse and worse as more and more kids are refered as the burden of society and ignored after the long time principal left. With the new principal more inexperienced teacher are getting in to make the situation worse.....
Lakeville Elementary School is a public elementary school in North Hills. The principal of Lakeville Elementary School is MS. PHYLLIS FELDMAN and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. 761 students attend Lakeville Elementary School and are mostly Hispanic; Asian/Pacific Islander; and White, non-Hispanic. 6% of the Lakeville Elementary School students have "limited English proficiency." 11% of the 761 students here have subsidized lunches. The student to teacher ratio at Lakeville Elementary School is 11:1. Long Island Hebrew Academy is one of the nearest elementary schools.

Lakeville suffers from an over-congestion of students. The faculty is overwhelmed by the ever increasing number of students from a surge in Asian families upgrading from nearby Queens (e.g. Flushing Little Neck and Bayside in particular). At Lakeville each grade has roughly 9 classes much larger than the other elementary schools in Great Neck which have 3-5. As such Lakeville had to move Kindergarten out to a different location (at Parkville with the pre-Ks). The parent community is fairly segmented and cliquey (families from working-class New Hyde Park in Queens zoned for Great Neck vs. affluent Lake Success vs. the others ). The teachers are at times frazzled and can come across as stressed. The student atmosphere is over competitive and parents can add to the tacky culture. The long-time principal Barbara retired this year after earning a prestigious Blue Ribbon award and has been replaced by Ms. Feldman.
Everyone child should have a place at a public school. How sad that this parent and so many others at Lakeville believe that children who need extra help have no place at Lakeville and are referred to as 'the burdens of society'. Lakeville is failing the students who need them most. These children are ignored and intervention is inappropriate. Many have simply needed a little extra help in the early years but due to poor intervention and lack of appropriate curriculum to address these needs have developed more severe reading issues and as a result started lagging behind in content area subjects as well. Unless you are an affluent naturally bright child without any needs don't go to Lakeville.
Hands on Principle and VP amazing teachers if there is a problem its addressed immediatly friendly fun
Lakeville Elementary School does not provide adequate intervention for struggling readers. Curriculum is outdated. The reading specialists do not correct reading difficulties nor implement programs such as Wilson correctly. Many children are below level and being ignored . Many parents have been forced to pay for private tutors or programs. Current research is not implemented and children in need lag behind.
Lakeville School is a wonderful school! The principal makes sure that every child's needs are met. There are 'regular academic classes' for the 'upper class children'. There are 'special education classes' for the 'middle class children'. Personal attention is guaranteed for the 'working class children' at the school. If the school is unable to meet the 'working class children' needs they will refer them to a special education school. The burdens of society sadly have no place in this school.
very nice school - excellent teachers and principal is wonderful and very involved with students!
The best school in town. Mrs. Raber makes this the best place academically and socially for any child. there are special programs for the gifted for those who need extra help and everyone in between. I have had three children go through this school (one still there) and they have had the most incredible teachers and learning experiences.
