Lakeland Regional has teachers and administration who care about the students. The school offers an excellent selection of classes and extracuricular clubs and activities to choose from.

Poor scheduling, top-heavy management, disinterested teaching staff. The student mix at the school is lower class and it affects the learning environment. Unfortunately there is no one at the top who cares enough to improve the situation.

I am very impressed with the staff and classes offered at LRHS. I had been expecting the worst, or at best, indifference. My son has some incredible teachers this year (10th grade). Last year we had had a few difficulties throughout the year. I was extremely satisfied with the Guidance Counselor support. I would recommend this school.

To the person who rated LRHS a zero....Did you talk with the administration ? Did you go to a BOE meeting to voice your concerns ? Are you an involved parent who participates in school activities ? I find the quality of education to be great at Lakeland. Empty accusations w/o any detail serve the good of no one......

If I could rate it -0, that would be too high. The best interest for your child is not their priority or on their agenda. Enter at your own risk!

three of my children have attended Lakeland and one will be enrolled next year. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the school. all of my children have flourished in Lakeland. they each participated in very different activities. cheering, soccer, track, softball, student council, DECA, swap. roadshow, and more. my oldest graduated from her first choice college, my second is attending her first choice college! teachers have gone above and beyond and guidance did a wonderful job! the administration always has a smile for me, the parent! parents must be involved! remember, it takes parents,teachers, and the student for success. Very clean and safe environment

My son goes to this school and I must say that I am very pleased with it. The administration and teaching staff is very friendly and helpful. The academic programs are among the best in the state. All of the extracurricular activites are top notch. Lakeland is one of the best public high schools around.

this school is so-so at best. The main concern of the staff is how much they get paid and when they're getting off work. Don't send your children there if you have a choice.

It seems as long as the students fall into the higher end or need special assistant, the school does well by these students. From what I understand its the ones in the middle that get lost. Also the athletic Dept. needs some fine tuning. Talented players are catered to while the others who could contribute to the teams are not used or 'cut'. Skills can be taught but attitude cannot. Althletic participation is a privelege but when a large part of per student funding goes to that dept. shouldn't the greatest amount of participants be allowed to join. Be honest with our young people, don't play games with their heads and emotions. Some students would do anything to be on a H.S.team. There has to be a way to change things! (especially when you are cutting only 2 or 3 players per sport.

As a former student at Lakeland Regional Highschool, I think that the previous remarks made by that 'concerned parent' are absolutely absurd. Each and everyone of my teachers had a passion for their job and conveyed that to all of their students. It is true that the heating system is faulty and this is the only true statement that he/she made during his/her rantings about the highschool. After receiving a large grant from the state of New Jersey, repairs are being made. Besides providing many athletic and musical extra cirricular activities, there is a wide variety of other activites geared towards leadership training and community service. These include L.E.A.P. (Leaders Enouraging Adolescent Progresss), S.W.A.P (Speak With A Peer), as well as oppurtunities to hold office on Student or Class Council. The school paper is also an award winning program and in 2003 the Lancer Ledger recieved high recognition for a medium sized school editorial. Having experienced the school environment first hand, I believe it was an amazing, productive, and essential part of my educational experience.

Teaching is lackluster and administration lacks substance. Teacher-initiated communication with the parents is essentially nonexistant. The building is too cold for student comfort during the winter--often below 55 degrees in the classrooms--but school dress code does not permit students to wear a jacket when necessary. The after school programs in this school are heavily geared towards athletics and music. There are few academic after school programs other than small clubs not well supported by the staff, administration, and board of education. The after school clubs in the music program place a dire financial burden on the families. One program costs parents thousands of dollars a year, another program costs hundreds of dollars per year. The district has the unwieldly policy of requiring that permission slips be notarized. For years, the board of education has engaged in questionable management of funds, raising the budget but not adequately demonstrating to the taxpayers where the money is being spent.
