Lake county Prep Academy is amazing! My son loves it and so does my niece. It meets all standards and then surpasses them. The environment is peaceful and well suited for the children to learn much easier and much faster than any other school I have been to. They are mainly VPK and Kindergarten but, they also offer daycare for pre VPK aged children and before and after care. Not only do they teach and prepare the children for 1st grade or beyond but they also teach them manners, good habits, and encourage them to be creative. My son is now more polite at 4 than I ever could have imagined. He is also learning even more advanced things like higher reading and writing, harder math and even other languages!

I am a former student at LRMS. I believe that the school was like a family to me. The teachers were great and the students were amazing. Some of the teachers don't care and just want there money but some of them do. For instance, Mrs. Flint is the worlds greatest math teacher and she will do anything to help you learn. Mrs. Hogan is the best science teacher you will find. She helps her kids and makes it fun for us. Then there are teachers that will make you feel like your at home like Mrs. Rettig, Mrs. Pohlplatz, and Mrs. Bulatovich. I love LRMS, I believe its a great school to attend.

I had 6 children go through LRMS and each has gone on to graduate from Calumet. What you put into a school is what you get out of it, as is in everything you do in life. Strive to succeed and you will be successful. It is our job as parents to teach our children discipline, not the teachers. Parents need to support the educational process in order for the process to work. Don't believe everything you hear.

I think that lake ridge middle school turned out to be a pretty good school. I was told so many bad things that were going on there, it turned out not to be so bad after all my son will be in 7th grade honors class, and my daughter will be coming in as a 6th grader and i feel she will do fine.

This school would be good if the kids didn't act like they are so tough.
