The whole school district is state rated Excellent With Distinction!!! This is the highest rating a district or a school can get. All of it is so true, from the excellent superintendant, to the principals, all of the teachers, employees, volunteers, parents, and students. It is a great school and a wonderful district to live in. My children just love it here.

I am a parent of this school. I just want to say that the principal, secretary, and teachers in this school are so caring and helpful. Yes, the school facility is older but I applaud the staff for making up for it. My daughter transferred from private school to Coventry and every once in a while I ask her if she wants to go back to the private school and she never once has wanted to. She loves the school and she has really great friends too. Keep up the great work.

While one of the oldest education buildings in the area, Lakeview Elementary school contiunes to provide a top-notch climate for learning. This is indicative of the entire teaching staff, support staff and principal. The students continue to praise school for it's atmosphere for having fun and learning. This is also reflected by the PTA and parents, whom support and give of themsleves for the good of the students. This has been an enjoyable experience and we wouldn't have missed this for the world.

The parent writing the previous review obviously wasn't sending her children to the correct school. I spent alot of time and energy open enrolling my child into coventry to avoid akron public schools. Lakeview has brand new math textbooks, a huge computer lab with well over 30 brand new pc's, and an atmosphere that encourages parents to be a part of the child's education. The building is old (who cares?) But in excellent repair, with a very nice playground and lots of equipment. Unlike that parent, i didn't mind packing my child's lunch, if it meant are more important program wouldn't be cut in it's place. Good luck in akron aps, that will be a decision you'll soon regret.

My child attended Lakeview for 2 years.The school is very outdated (text materials and also the building.)It is a small school,you would think that the teachers would have some kind of bond with their students but they don't, which is sad. The teachers do not spend enough time on the indivual needs of each student.Coventry is not a 'poor' district yet they do not support the schools ie:no cafeteria 2002-2003,not 1 field trip in 2 years. Pretty sad, don't you think? I enrolled my child in APS district,not only due to the above issues, but if you compare Lakeview stats to some of the other elementry schools in APS District and other districts you will understand. Also Lakeview does not seem to be very organized.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
