I am in 7th grade at Lake Middle School, and it is overall a very good school. The teachers are really helpful, and the office/front desk staff are always there when you need them. They seperate the Gifted and Talented kids from the normal ones, and homework is pretty reasonable. They also have a fabulous AP program for people in high school math/advanced science etc. There are some bad teachers/classes, and a popular crowd but that is expected. Overall, I really like going to school at Lake!

Mr. Kealy, Ms. Martin, Mrs Kristi Johnson, and Mr. Eberhardt for being inspirational, knowledgable in their topics, funny, kind, and AWESOME :-)

Teacher effectiveness: Very effective
September 10, 2015
I have had some very inspirational teachers. They taught me to be respectful, kind, positive, and made me feel like an equal: Mr. Kealy, Mrs.K.Johnson and Ms. Martin are my favorites. Most of the teachers I've had have been knowledgable about their topics.

Amount of homework: Just right
September 10, 2015
It's pretty good, but sometimes in the spring it can get quite heavy (finals, projects etc.) The homework load increases by grade.

Develops grit: Strongly agree

All the teachers expect students to turn homework in, be on time etc., and there are consequences if you don't follow the rules. Lake also has a program called AVID and similar classes that teach college/high school readiness, study habits and more.

Develops respect: Agree
September 10, 2015
Most of the teachers teach the students sto be respectful and are successful with that, but I have had a few who just don't care and the rude people are let off.

Develops empathy: Neutral
September 10, 2015
Again, it really depends on the teacher; some develop positivity/empathy, some don't. Honestly, though, people who are nice/medium stay nice or get nicer, and people who are mean or rude stay mean and rude.

Develops honesty: Agree
September 10, 2015
It realky depends on the teacher. Some teach the students to be kind and positive, and some are so lax that people misbehave a lot. I think most of the teachers at Lake would be the first one, though.

Too crowded!!! Not enough attention on the individual student needs. Be prepared for your child to have to deal with the typical self-centered, entitled Woodbury students. I've had older children attend this school and was disappointed on so many levels. I have another who is going into 6th grade and I am looking at alternative options. Test scores are high because it's an affluent community and the majority of the parents are college educated. Lots of peer pressure to be the BEST in grades, academics, etc. I do have to give credit to several teachers who are very good at what they do. However, there are several teachers that are sub par and should have been dismissed from the district years ago.

It's too bad that one score skews the overall rating! My daughter finished her first year and the parents and teachers were awesome. I had frequent communication with teachers and staff and they were always extremely open. My daughter was stretched academically and I her growth was evident. The overcrowding should not be an issue soon, as boundaries just went through a major (and emotional!) overhaul.

The school may be crowded, but the teachers are great and the extra curricular activities are as well.

This is a great school! Wonderful education, teachers and a principal who manages and takes action when problems occur. My child had a wonderful 1st year at Lake Junior High.
