    What an amazing school! The staff is caring and dedicated. Administration is patient and kind. We moved from a private school to Lakewood and we could not be happier. Our children are thriving. Keep up the GREAT work!

    Not sure of the previous ratings but Lakewood has come a long way in the last couple of years. Perhaps those families that chose to leave should have gotten more involved with the school. My family loves the caring atmosphere and the individual attention each of our three children receive. Having visited other schools I can say hands down that Lakewood offers the best support services. They have also come a long way with regard to technology - my third grade son is teaching me how to do things on a computer. Thank you to Lakewood school for being such welcoming school.

    I've had my kids at Lakewood for years now as we have moved up in grades things became worse and worse. Lakewood has to many bad teachers ruining it for the good ones. It really is sad how little is done for children with special needs. We along with many many other families have decided to stop waiting for change and just leave. I would not recommend this school to anyone.

    It is very sad that the school isn't run the way it used to be. The school is fine as long as your child does not have special needs. My child was diagnosed with an ASD and we had to fight for many years for her to get services. Even now she is constantly bullied and the kids trick her so she gets into trouble all the time. Whenever we (or she) complain they constantly tell her to ignore them but the bullies don't get into trouble. The bullies run that school not the teachers and certainly not the administration. The worst thing that happened to that school was when Ms. Vail (old administrator) was pushed out. She cared so much about the kids knew all of their names had lunch with them gave them hugs. She was wonderful and the new people who are now there could care less about your kid. The number of kids they lose to school choice each year speaks for itself.

    Lakewood had many flaws as many schools do in the area. But this school is one of the best. The children are friendly and the teachers more often than not are respectable educators. From K-8 The education is as high any parent would like for the childs developing mind.!

    I believe Lakewood could be a wonderful school if the children with ADHD were not singled out. I also believe the staff needs more training and understanding on how to work with these children. I have 2 children diagnosed with this medical condition and have actually considered transfering them to another school that can meet their needs. I know schools get extra funding for children with this problem and it seems that the funding is being used elsewhere...because in the last 3 years since the 1st diagnosis... there has been no extra help or understanding from many of the staff...(Excluding a few wonderful teachers...) and administation. They need to look at meeting 'All' of the childrens needs. Not just the kids that they classify as 'The Good Ones!'.

    Our family of 5 moved to Twin Lakes and are pleased with Lakewood school. My daughter has Mrs. Niebuhr for her Kindergarden teacher and she is phenomenal! Whats awesome about Lakewood is that the Administration will take a request for a specific teacher under consideration. I truely wish more schools would do this. Thanks Mrs. Niebuhr for giving my daughter a great Kindergarden experience. I do have to say though that Lakewood does not organize an open house for the kids before school which I ended up just taking my kids in on my own time and visitng. And the school supply list we received through the mail came within a week of school. Parents are ready to get alittle organized before then. thanks and hope this may find more teachers and parents leaving feedback.
