Excellent School, the band teacher is wonderful and teachers are very caring and passionate about teaching. The school does have wear and tear due to it's age and could use remodeling and rebuilding.

Terrible.. they have no concern for the kids...they initiate bullying themselves..makes fun of the kids IN THE CLASSROOM which enables bullies. Then of course its the teachers word against the kids even when multiple kids have the same complaint.

Lakeview Middle School simply does not care about the children! After three separate complaints about bullying, where the school did absolutely nothing, I pulled my daughter out. And on the day I went to un-enroll her, not one single person even bothered to ask why I was doing it. Her Language Arts teacher came to tell her goodbye and that she'd miss her....no one else even spoke to us except the office secretary that handled the paperwork. I had heard rumors about it being a "rough" school before she started there, but it is the school we are zoned for, and she asked to go there with her friends. No clue it would turn out like that!

My daughter is ready to enter high school in the fall! Thanks to LMS, I feel she is prepared to do so. The girls' basketball program is wonderful. She also played volleyball where the leadership was a little lacking but that is to be changing this year. The basketball coach is taking over. On the education front, she was in all gifted classes, had wonderful teachers and friends. She had straight As all three years and this was in part due to the wonderful teachers. Keep up the good work LMS. I have another daughter who will be there in a year!

This school has frequent physical altercations between students. The transgressors are given multiple chances to cause harm to other students before they are removed. There is an alternative school within the same walls, halls, and cafeteria as your high achieving student. The curriculum is not designed with current learning research, and will not prepare your child with the skills necessary to seek out and assimilate information on his or her own. Coaches are employed who have no more than a High School education. Coaches are allowed by faculty to yell military style on a daily basis during breakfast time and dismissal. Coaches' social media outlets are covered with photos of befriended adolescents and teenaged females. This school has deep rooted ethical issues and poor management of faculty, and uses poor discretion concerning the safety and well being and future abilities of its students.

I rate LMS with 1 star being the parent of 2 students that have attended LMS,I found it a very unenjoable expierience we were encountered with racism being openly expressed;When as a parent I approached the issues openly I found that there was no where I could go to help.

My son started 6th grade this year and I have to say that his teachers have been outstanding! They genuinely seem to care about him. As far as the rest of the staff I haven't really been too impressed. The ladies that work in the main office are usually very short and very quick to dismiss my phone calls, which I have only called a couple of times for what I think have been good reasons. I do think that this school is a very 'clique' oriented school. Middle school years are hard enough for our kids to go through but when your kids are around teachers and staff who let them be defined by who their friends are or what they wear or who their parents are it makes it harder not only on the kids but us as parents also.

As a current student at LMS I feel that we have equal learning orrpuntities and discipline. Each stundent is given a chance for a club at a given time during school and has the oppruntunite to play sports. Some of the things can be workeed on yes but overall it is a great school.

Being a parent of a new middle school student I have not been very impressed with LMS. I found after my daughter had a accident at school that the leaders do not seem very concerned about the safety of their students. Hopefully the will one day see that everyone should be treated with equal care.

Lakeview is a nice middle school for all students. There are times when discipline is a bit lax but there are also times when discipline should be enforced and some parents make it difficult by little to no cooperation. Despite certain differences and obstacles that are characteristic of all schools, the students at Lakeview strive and grow in their education. There are plenty of teachers who really care about the kids as individuals. They try to bring the good out of children and push them to succeed.

The groups at LMS are diversified but the greatest emphasis is given by teachers and faculty to the children who seek to 'fit in' with the 'in crowd' and are labled as jocks or preps by the average student. It is often not what the student learns that builds their self esteem at this school but who they know that pushes a child ahead or holds them back in the eyes of the pompous teachers. Many programs are available to the parents that can afford them and to an elite few that make the team. If a child is not able to make the team then little opportunity exist for sports. A large amount of community money is squandered on teacher gifts (incentives) and trinkets that are suppose to motivate the kids academically. This money could be used to upgrade the facilities, field trips, motivational speakers, software, update computer hardware, etc.

The school only cares about the ''so called'' in crowd.

Lakeview is a wonderful school it has teachers that really care about the students and put them first. They have a positive environment and many social activities that the students may participate in. The only negative thing about the school is its principle he doesn't understand that he is workign with teens and that they may be going through alot of things at home and that somtimes it may follow them to school. He needs to open up a little more and understand that he works with teens and that some are going through alot.
