Academy At The Lakes
Teacher effectiveness: Very effective

The middle school teachers are the finest you will find across the board in all subjects. The school does an excellent job of building an authentic culture where everyone at the school internalizes the school motto. Teachers are mentors, compassionate leaders, understanding and disciplined in their approach to inspiring kids to do their best. It's tough to find all of these attributes in a school, but Academy at the Lakes has carefully selected the best and brightest teachers that uphold its mission.

This school is fun. Balancing homework with in-school activities means kids aren't stressed-out all the time. Instead, they're happy, active and curious. And with so many opportunities to participate in athletics, arts, science and more, who wants to be loaded down with homework when you can be actively participating in learning experiences.

The school is fun but the work is challenging. It is a small school so there is plenty of opportunities to personalize your education to meet your needs. The school will do whatever it takes to ensure each student is challenged appropriately.

This is the most respectful learning environment I've ever seen. Everyone who works at the school is not only deeply respectful, they encourage and nurture respect in meaningful ways-- through community service, days of manners and even during assemblies.

The school's motto is "You Matter Here" and every faculty, staff and administrator personifies honesty, integrity and empathy. I can't imagine a better school for developing character in a young person. Kudos to Mr. Pitcairn and Mr. Heller for instilling respect, appreciation and caring ever single day.

Very progressive teachers and curriculum. We are very impressed with the critical thinking assignments, hands-on projects and integration of technology into assignments and projects. The atmosphere is very accepting, respectful and fun and no evidence of bullying in the middle school. Teachers are smart, happy, energetic and enthusiastic and obviously love their jobs, students and the school.

Teachers are aware of children's busy schedules. However, math and language arts homework is daily.

The no cut policy in the sports program means that all students have the opportunity to play team sports which helps develop those traits.

Teachers demand respect as well as the administration. Children have dress uniforms for important occasions.
