Lakeview leadership academy has a wonderful reading program. My son read 3.1 years below grade level as a seventh grader. After spending two years with Mrs. Beyer he is now reading seventh grade level as an eighth grader & is ready for high school. Thank you Principal Keeter for having Language! at my son's school as he prepares for high school.

Lakeview Middle School is moving to a Leadership Academy in 2014-15. Since the arrival of Mr. Keeter as our Principal 2 years ago, Lakeview has been stressing teaching Leadership within each single student. Changing the name to Lakeview Leadership Academy is very appropriate and I look forward to assisting in any way to make the Leader In Me successful. I am currently a teacher @ Lakeview & have seen a positive change in student behavior as well as students showing respect to their elders the past year. With the focus toward Leader In Me, the shcool culture as well as mindset will change forever. Thank you Mr. Keeter for having the vision to bring this to our school.

As a parent I am very diligent when it comes to my daughter's education and that is why I chose Lakeview Middle School. The teaching staff, as well as every other adult on campus, seem to be thinking of only what is best for the students. Great lesson plans, good during and after school programs and a principal who is there to listen to the parents. I like that in an administrator. I would highly recommend Lakeview Middle School to any parent - they will not be disappointed.

I recently had the privilege of working with this school's administration and staff. Their commitment to excellence, and their incredible commitment to the success of their students is unparalleled. This staff includes two recently recognized VFW teachers of the year, an ACSA honored principal of the year, a published author who teaches creative writing, two doctorates, and an overall caring and collaborative staff. This is definitely a school to watch!

This school is not a safe place, lots of lack of supervision, problems with bullies and fights. Also, only a small handful can teach effectively and compassionately. The Dean is not truly concerned about the children and lacks professional skills.

When writing a review you should use spell check. These reviews are hilarious. Parents need to learn how to use the correct their/there/ they're. Alot is not a word. It's a lot. I will not send anyone of my 4 daughter's to this school. I wish Endeavor would extend their grade level to 12th. This school would be great if they kept it for Spring Valley Lake residents.

The school is nice looking and it's a few good teachers left like Mr.Kubacki,& Mrs. Kirby but at the end of last year Many of the great staff but in Apps, to work at other"s school's because of how the school was ran, There was a staff member that said she rather work with the kids in Adelanto than there because the kids were better then there, There arrested for everything, where the wrong hate, but bullying they do nothing about. Mrs. Harvey is evil, doesn't care for the kids and only comes for a check, they don't make the teacher's accountable for anything for want the kids to act like adults and keep there words, 2 years there and I'm yet to see a teacher who actually grades there homework on time, yet they hand out progress reports, saying the kids haven't done things and they have they just haven't graded there work piled up on there desk.. there gone more than their there. Wouldn't send my next 7th grader here.

I am a student at Lakeveiw and this is a great school.This school has excellent teachers,staff,counselors,and a great vice principal.Lakeview also provides great after school programs from study to dances.We also have sports,ASB,lournalism,Avid,and world travelers club.I thinck our GPA as a school is only bad because students dont use these resources.About the little punks at our school,that dosent have any thing to do with teachers.I think it has to do with their parents.This has been my favorite school by far!=]

My son has been at Lakeview for 2 years now. I feel that this is the worst school that i have ever seen in all my years as a parent(24 yrs) He is in special ed class and that teacher really needs to go back to school herself . every time I have asked about my child,she has honestly never known a answer to give me. IEP meeting are a joke at Lakeview.I have came home and cryed out of fustration. I turned in a INC. report having to do with THEFT,VANDOLIZEM ON SCHOOL GROUNDS. a week ago, and i have yet to here from the staff about this matter.I have left messages for teachers to call me about sons school work over and over and get NO CALL. before/after school the students are rude & dis-respectful to each other,parents,staff & cars going by.THIS SCHOOL IS RATES BELOW 0.

My son started at Lakeview in August 2009 after much hesitation and deliberation. The only reason I enrolled him here is because we were new to the area the year before, and he didn't have very much time to make many friends, and I didn't want to enroll him in independent study without having a social outlet. I completely regret my decision. Yes, my son was able to make more friends, but he has been constantly ridiculed by ignorant students about his ethnicity, he's assaulted with daily smacks to the back of the head, shoved, and there was an instance on the bus that left me cursing at administration, without so much as a single follow up call. Not to mention the constant threat of riots, fights, and lockdowns. Now this situation with a student getting slashed and threatened with death is the last straw. Send your children elsewhere.

This school has severe disciplinary issues, kids are fond of throwing rocks at passing cars, which to me indicates a very poor level of civility and consideration for others. It should be have been kept for children in the area and not bus troubled youth into it. The level of harassment and aggression is very high. Parents and Teachers should be more involved and not let the students take over the school, the students are there to learn, not to live like in the jungle, where the strongest survive. Consider other options before enrolling your children here, be wary!

This school isn't just for Spring Valley Lake residents. I wish it were though! They bus kids from all the way over from old town Victorville. Its a mini Compton! I went for registration and it I seen nothing but a bunch of disrespectful little punks. Needless to say I pulled my son out within 10 days!

I am a 8th grade student at lakeview. This school is a great scool it gives us many diffrent activites to be in. The students are always involved in the school programs.The teachers and counselors are great they give after scool help to the kids that need it and that want it. They have a great fitness program for the kids. The campus is safe there are security watching out for the troubled kids even thought there are very few. I would love to come back and visit this school and the teachers.Its a very good school where u can learn alot of things and feel very safe.

The staff while nice are allowing the students to run the school... the students coming in from others areas,(noted for being troubled) are the issue. They're trashing not only a new, very nice school, but also harrass those who live in the Spring Valley Lake area. So far they've dumped trash cans on other students, gave another child a swirly in the toilet, while security stood outside the bathroom door. The caucasian children there are harrassed, no Asain or Middle Eastern children at all. Why these teachers allow our schools to be run like prisons is beyond me... We bought a home here to raise our children in a decent area only to have them bus these students in and allow them to act out. If only they could teach these children and teachers that respect isn't just some motown song.

I love Lakeview. Because of that school I understand all my schoolwork much better. and the fitness program is excellent they make sure your kids to have good health. Lakeview is a safe campus when ever there's a fight which rarely happens staff comes right away. The counselors and teachers are a big help. For all those who say Lakeview is a school for kids who are dumb or have discipline problems are wrong. This school is like a second home to me.

No well behaved, smart, good child should be sent to this school. This school is for those children who are troubled. This school has a poor enviorment, bad students, and is in a bad location. This school also has some major safety issues.
