This school is unsafe. Check the police reports. Many teachers have trouble controlling classrooms. The homework load is unreasonable.

My son is in 8th grade and this has been his first year at Lakewood Middle School. He really likes the school and has felt safe there. There have been no problems at all. I have talked to his teachers several times and have been impressed with their level of dedication and their willingness to speak with me and offer their assistance. My son particularly likes the lunchroom set-up. He says it is like a restaurant and that he can choose which items he wants to eat. The facility overall looks very nice. It is clean and maintained well, and the theater is very impressive.
