We have been proud to have our children attend this school. The staff is engaging and supportive on so many levels. We receive weekly communications from the staff, principal and teachers. We have also found that they are always willing to take a few moments in person discussing our children's individual progress or concerns that we may have, be it after class or at one of the schools social functions. We see that our children are provided many opportunities to learn in different ways and that this is defiantly not a one solution fits all environment by any stretch of the imagination. The instructors and office staff are well aware of the differing needs of each child and make great efforts to ensure that each child reaches their full potential. Test scores are not the only measurement of success, but they are evidence of a system that is focused on of finding and delivering ways to provide our children, at all levels of development and ability, the opportunity to be successful and to lay a solid foundation for todays complex and competitive environment.

This school is all about teaching to the test. If your child is bright and creative send them somewhere else. We spent the majority of the school year trying to convince our child that there is more than one way to solve a problem, despite the curriculum at the school that only teaches one way. They teach to only one type of learner, and do not have varied strategies to help other learners.

We transferred to Lakeview during my oldest son's kindergarten year from a 'supposedly' exceptional school on the east coast. Lakeview blew it away! The teachers have been able to provide tailored enrichment challenges to both my sons. Lakeview has excellent academically gifted enhancements to provide advanced kids growth opportunities. All of the teachers and staff are wonderful and caring. There is great parent involvement as well.

My son has been going to Lakeview for 3 years. He loves it & we love it. The staff is very caring & attentive to the students & their individual personalities. They have many special programs for gifted & talented students, the principal knows the kids well & is a good leader. Our biggest fear is that he will retire before our youngest moves to middle school. Parents actually get irritated when there fewer options to volunteer. This really is a great school located in a great community.

My children spent a few years in this school and it certainly was not what I'd call a "10." The teachers and principal are almost obsessed with "teaching to the test" (state standards test that is.) This is not a place to "learn to learn", to think, to be creative. Just because a school has high test scores, does not mean it's a place that will be good for your children. Visit, check it out before blindly assuming high scores are everything. You put a bright kids in this environment and they will surely tune out.
