    A thriving school. Lake has had a lot of hurdles to over come but over all it is doing good and it is very exciting that soon it will be re-built

    This School doesn't have the resources for kids with learning difficulties... and the teachers don't want to spend the time with helping them this school should only be for regular kids.. the funding that this school get are not helping make thing better. Yes parent get involved because they have too or the kids will be far beyond the school is failing very badly in every area..and it has the worse rating in the Contra Costa.. wish i was in my home town and my kids would be in better plan... plus there is bulling at this school... some teacher don't even pay attention to this or its the teacher that bullies the kids ... those that have post and say that this school great you need to open your eyes. Submitted by a parent All this is true that the teacher are bullies and the system for kids with LD.. don't work...I think this school should be review from the state and resign better teachers and stuff...yes parents have to get involved or the kids will be held back a grade because the school doesn't have the resources for the kids or for kid with LD

    I am not a parent but serve our students in another capacity at Lake Elelmentary. I truly believe that we have a fine school with an excellent and caring staff. We work very hard at providing the children with a good education and appropriate disciplines. Our kids are great. I think that the staff and parent participation has a lot to do with making them the great young people that they are. We strive to help our students be bright kids with bright futures at Lake!

    My 3rd Grade son attends this horrific school and I would not recommend it to anyone! I moved from El Sobrante and had to take him out of Sheldon and this school is was a big downgrade. The principle is not that good at ALL and the teachers are ok but I have seen better. Their after school program was what got my attention at first but after my son had an Asthma attack and was out of school for a week they gave his spot away without contacting me or the school directly to even inquire of why he was absent. I complained to the principle and nothing was done.

    Lake has been great for my son. He is a first grader and can read very well. His demands for learning is being met. His kindergarten teacher last year was top notch and his teacher now was just awarded as best teacher in California. The principal encourages parent involvement and truly kind to the students while playing an active role in discipline and educating on a first hand basis.

    I have had 4 children attend Lake school with a good level of satisfaction. The teachers there are all committed to giving the kids a good foundation to start. There are alot of after school activities and a high level of parent participation. I think the staff at the school feels like family.
