I love Lakewood middle school-we moved here recently and the staff has been terrific! Whenever I've had a question, the counselors have been quick to respond. In addition, the kids here are friendly and nice!!

This school is absolutely horrid. The teachers are pretty good though, but other than that the students are so rude and snotty. If you have social anxiety or have problems with interacting with others, I would not recommend this school! It's so cliquey. If you're popular in this school, you'll love it! But otherwise you'll want to leave right away. There aren't many students either, and most of them won't wanna be your friend unless you act the way the students' definition of perfect is. So please, think twice about sending your child here.

This a Great School. They challenge you to go beyond the districts and schools expectation. All the teachers are great, they help you with anything you need. Great School.

Lakewood is a place where they challenge you to do better. They have great exploratory classes and great music programs. They teach you to be a strong leader and have excellent teachers to encourage you. They're drama department is great and they also make classes fun. Lakewood is awesome!!

It really depends of the teacher since leadership is very weak. It can be a great school but there are things that need to be changed from a higher level.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
