Profile Completeness

INTERMEDIATE

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I am a former teacher. The teachers have to do so much more than just teach the curriculum and prepare students for regents exam, RCT test and other NYS testing. We had to be mentors, substitute parents, big brother/sister, mediators and counselors. The teachers are underpaid and overworked.....I challenge the best public school teacher to try one week here......I bet they couldn't do it. So hats off to the teachers still giving 'their all' on a daily basis. You are doing a wonderful job and a great service to these young people.

This school gives children a oppurtunity that they will not find anywhere else.They get achance to catch up to thier grade, regardless of deficit., and earn a diploma. there is great intramural sports, off campus recreations that most families couldn't afford to do, (consistently) the food is exceptional first name produts..always !! The Clinical and Medical is also first rate. The chances they are afforded here are like nothing found elsewhere. please don't put much value in a review written by a student who would sooner be running the streets with the DEADLY gangs they so often come from. Ask they kids that have made in through the program and want some form of a good future. Mostly remember if you don't reform them they will be your neighbors either way. If you think they aren't from the Upper crust as well ....you be wrong again. Disfunction has NO boundries !!

I am a current student at Lake Grove School. This school is not on the correct grade level, it is actually on a lower level. The staff aren't great but there is a select few who are helpful and caring and who don't want to be your friend but to be a staff to give structure, instead of everything being fun and game's.

I am not a parent, but I am a former student of Lake Grove School as is my husband. Perhapes the program works for some (those who get favored) but for most kids it doesn't. Many of the students go onto leading the same kind of lives they did befor they entered the school and others do worse. My husband and I are just 2 of a very small percent that actually does well. I felt that most staff were worse than the kids and that there was/is a huge cloud of tension hanging over the school. You send your kids there to get away from the sex,drugs,and violence yet that is what surrounds you at that school. This is just my opinion, but then again I was there and saw/lived it first hand. -LL
