    Lakeview is the hidden jewel of South Milwaukee. We have the most dedicated staff small class sizes great programs and the most active PTO team. We are truly a family of caring parents staff and students. Any bad rep can only be due to a few narrow-minded small town folks who are afraid of diversity. Unfortunate for them but fortunate for us. Keep up the great work Lakeview!

    Lakeview has a true family feel. They want the kids staff and parents to feel unified. The staff is outstanding and the dedication is shown on a daily basis. The best school in the School District of South Milwaukee-Elementary level.

    Every person in this school is dedicated to the education of the kids. They take on some of the most challenging kids and help them to be in the mainstream. We couldn't be luckier to have such a strong staff.

    The staff at this school truly care about the kids. They show it over and over again. I can't say enough about them and the secretary's are great too. Everyone works together to make the kids feel comfortable and to provide the best possible environment for the kids. One great school.

    The teachers and staff at Lakeview school are simply put the best. My children have attended this school for the past 10 years with 2 of them graduating. I couldn't ask for better people to make sure my kids are prepared for the for the future they have ahead of them.
