Racism IS alive and well in this school. My child was so horribly bullied at this school by adults, including the principal, that we chose to move to a different school and neighborhood. We are not a family of color - but I did see the racism referred to in the other post. There is an interesting system here that is easy to see. There are A, B and C teachers. A teachers and classroom are easily identifiable by the "best" and most connected families. B teachers and classrooms are reserved for the students and families who haven't quite proven their worth or value to Ms. Logan. C students/classrooms are for families who question and are trouble makers. We were in an A classroom but watched this happen - and watched what happened when we called it out. Very interesting social observations here. Would definitely not recommend this school for serious or mature families - or for students with special needs, rather that is GT or lower performing. I'll never forget when the principal apparently thought I would think it "cool" that she was able to be home in time for a nap by 3:30. Sadly, the great teachers - many of them "B" - feel bullied as well. Toxic place.

Awesome school!!!! My daughter had an amazing teacher!! Very concerned about the children but also their family!!! This school does everything they can to involve family activities and being involved with your child/children/learning etc, which my older child went to crystal hill for 3 years and now having the experience with my daughter in "K" at Lakewood has me thanking God for this move and school. The principal (Logan) also amazing! If u don't like your child on a routine, structured, or having manners/good behavior then yea this isn't the school for the parent, anyway! Politics are everywhere. As a parent we should know how to deal with it already. I never once felt my daughter or myself were treated any different b/c of money Only improvement that the school needs, will be completed soon! YAY 2014-15

Racism is alive and well in this school. If you child is white and has money, they will be treated very well.

Not a good school school for children that need a little extra help. Parents, if your child has dyslexia, please avoid this school.

Sara Logan is a vindictive woman and bullied my child. If your child has special needs do NOT send him here.

My Grandson is in his third year at Lakewood Elementary. His experiences there are obvious, in that he reads well, spells well, performs math well, and generally just loves his teachers. The school is undergoing a major construction upgrade, so that is a plus. There has been no safety or bulling issues to date. The staff has a great attitude about their work, and the test scores reflect their quality of teaching. I am thrilled my Grandson is there. I have attended many extra activities, and the kids love it. Thank PaPa Jim

This school could benefit by adding additional programs such as band, choir, foreign language, chess club etc..... The Gifted and Talented Program is all politcal and you are guaranteed a spot in the GT class if your parent is a teacher regardless of your academic standing! Mrs. Norman and Mrs. Lupton are the most caring teachers this school could ever have.

My son is ADHD w/ socialization issues, and this is my sons 1st day of school at Lakewood Elementary. All the kids and staff very warmly greeted my son and made him feel very welcome and I have never heard so many children with such pride in there school. They all spoke very highly of the school, staff, grounds, curricular activities etc. I have a very good feeling with I enter this school and so did my son. I know my son is going to excel here, and look forward to all our time with them. They have great parent envolvment, and a 'No Bullies' policy. Very healthy, stable environment. I highly recommend this school. Thank you Lakewood, 'You Can't Hide That Lion Pride'

I would like to thank the Kindergarten teachers especially Ms. Norman. She made the first experience w/ the NLR school district a memorable one for my daughter and I. The faculty/staff are very friendly and helpful. The test scores that are obtained by the students speak for themselves in that they demonstrate the knowledge that is being taught to them. No one is left behind and each child is treated the same. I've only experienced the Kindergarten sector but I'm sure the rest of the program will be just as rewarding. The principal is very personable and exemplifies a true leader. Overall, this school is outstanding.

Teachers are very good at taking kids to their learning level. A one on one atmostphere in a class of 19 is a wonderful thing to have! No child is neglected. They are very high on parental involvement, which I love, but most of all father's come to the school once per month on a rotation called Dad's of Good Students (DOGS). This is great for the kids to see it's a family thing not just a mommie place. K-5 goes to computer at least 2 days per week. The art department is great but in constant need of supply donations. The parents and teachers really work together and this is the main reason why I choose this school for my three children. They also have a no bullying policy which is wonderful for a small child, it really helps out the little ones.
