Don't let the number fool you! We have great teachers here that care about every student. We are wonderfully diverse in our mainstream classes and provide ESL as well. This is truly a "don't judge a book by its cover" school/district. Our schools are now equipped with epipens and having a child who has personally been in an asthmatic/allergy emergency at school, they are prepared to handle the situation. We have a high graduation rate at the high school and that wouldn't happen unless the elementary and junior high schools weren't doing their jobs.
The quality of teachers district 4 has is above all. Lake Park Elementary has done an outstanding teaching job with my 4 children. The experience of teaching is there .I currently have a 5th and 3rd grader at Lake Park and 2 at the High School level. We have an outstanding library, the Music & Art dep. do wonders with our young ones. We have a great pond across the street were our 5th grader are able to study nature. (Nature Nerds Club) We also have after school programs for students that need a little extra help in reading (Bridges). For our parents we have a computer-learning program. Our P.T.A. is on top of things and always looking for the best of our students. Thank You Lake Park for all the wonderful years you have given our children. I will stay involved as much as can for the next 2 years.
