My son started Lakeland Elementary in Sept. 2014. The entire staff was very welcoming and helpful. The principal is relatively new but I always see him walking the campus, talking to staff and parents and is very knowledgeable and positive. I really love the school and the staff so far have really wonderful.

Cannot rate this school yet but please note there is a new principal whom I met and was kind enough to give me an unscheduled tour of the school.

The falling enrollment at this school is due to one thing, the incompetence of the principal. She does not care about the community, spurns any sort of parent involvement, does not meet deadlines, and sits in her office, whereas other principals would be making observations in classrooms, providing support to ALL staff members, and reaching out to community members. With the exception of one first grade teacher, who has a rotten attitude, the staff is dedicated to the success of the student first and foremost. All hope is not lost with this school, but it definitely needs a change in leadership. The move from Jersey to Paddison to Lakeland, when will the district leadership see the pattern of failure with this principal?

I really love the staff at Lakeland, but the principal however is really no good for the school. My children have been discriminated against, hit, and mistreated by other children, I've addressed these issues with most times no resolve. I've spoke with several parents who have great dislike for Mrs McIntosh, i know teachers have haven't returned due to Mrs McIntosh, as well as students not returning or didn't return due to her. I had to make several complaints before any actions were taken. Bottom line we need a new principal, if it was not for the teachers I would've removed my children. When will the district listen. There is a parent with complaints now that are not being handled properly.

WOW! Every year I pray and hope that Principal Mcintosh need a Overall standard Review. She's is not fit to run Lakeland school or any other. My son is so bless that he is no longer goes to Lakeland Elementary. But don't get me wrong the school was Superb before with a Superb Ex-principals. Except now Ms. Mcintosh- "Parents and students will voice out how terrible you run your Lakeland Elementary school now and the previous one before you got transfer to Lakeland Elementary".. Board of Education will see you someday. The Principal need to be Reminded Quote " No Child Left Behind". You Failed...Be a better Person for Once Principal Mcintosh.

Terrible principal! Complaints to the district don't work. The superintendant doesn't do anything. He needs to be better at listening to parents. It's time to go to the school board and elect new people that will take care of this problem. This principal has brought the morale of the school to its lowest. It's no wonder that parents are taking their kids out of the school. Ms. Macintosh has got to go!

This school needs a new principal. Mrs. McIntosh sure is cold. I'm glad that I don't have to talk to her very much. She just wants it her way and doesn't care what the parents want. I'm afraid of what is going to Lakeland. It's like the life went out of the school. Sad news,

What happened to Lakeland? The new principal sure is the boss. I used to feel good at the school. Parents don't feel too welcome anymore. I liked the principal last year. He seemed to know what he was doing.

Lakeland is a small school in a big city. The people in it feel free to walk and bring their kids to the classroom. Parents involvement is not to much. But the women participation in the school activities is very important for this school.

This is a good school. The principal is new. This is her second year. The parents that I know really like the changes at the school. The teachers are great. Everyone seems happy to be here. My son is doing so much better this year. We just moved to this school. He is trying to do his best and wants to please his teacher. He is soaring. This principal is great.
