Maybe some relief in sight. I read on dallasisd.org that a new Elementary will open up in 2005 called Vickery Meadows Elementary. This Elementary will help with the Lakewood crowding issue and leave Lakewood with out bussed in students. Having Lakewood Elem back as a neighborhood school should do wonders for the students, teachers, and staff. Until then, watchdog!
Highly disappointed in this school. The TAG program is a joke and very undeveloped. The children who need advanced studies are put to the side and asked to write in a journal while classmates catch up with them. Even the front office is one of the most unsocial encounters that you can have at the school. Parent involvement is the only positive thing about this school.
A point that disappointed me was to see that there were alot of children on the playground and only one teacher. I feel that although she is one of the few teachers attent to the children it is still a handful for one teacher with approximately 100 or more children at one time.
Not enough attention is paid to the large number of academically advanced children in this school. More emphasis is needed in the TAG program. Parents, while involved, are not doing a good job working with the Principal to acheive desired goals. The PTA Board took a position of harsh animosity with the Principal from her first day on the job. This has not been helpful. This conflict has made us the problem step-child of the district.
