There is a zero tolerance policy for bullying and they have a proactive during the day school club that helps to address any bullying by teaching students how to effectively deal with any issues when they see them.
The teachers and staff do a great job of supporting students at all levels by differentiating instruction, proving accelerated or intervention programs and recognizing students who are on track and supporting those who are not.
There is not too much homework and the homework the students do have is either work that they did not finish during the school day or that directly supports the work they are doing in school. They do a great job of not just assigning homework as busy work.
Lake International has been a wonderful experience for our 6th grader. She came from a dual language school where she had a strong Spanish background and Lake has been able to support her Spanish level by offering a fantastic advanced Spanish literacy class. In addition, she is in honors math and literacy classes, is part of the YESS mentoring program, has art, gym and technology (as do all students) and is part of this wonderful community located right on Sloan's Lake. We choiced out of our neighborhood school (Skinner) into Lake because it was the right fit for our daughter and both programs are wonderful neighborhood schools in NW Denver. I strongly encourage all parents/students to check out Lake as it is a real gem in our neighborhood.
