Very diverse student body. So many possibilities in the courses offered, fine arts, athletics, academic clubs, etc. Lakeview Centennial is a wonderful school where the students truly care for one another and pride in the school shows! Parents are very responsive and show up for meetings. The PTA is top notch. If you are looking for a school where your child can excel in so many different avenues, this is the school for you.
WOW what a difference a few years makes! This school has changed so much for the positive. The programs offered... the sports offered... so many great new faculty who really care. I promise no one paid me to say this. Kudos to Mr. Rivera and his team. There are some amazing teacher and a very positive atmosphere. My kids love it there now. SO GLAD we came back to LC. I think it is slowly becoming a crown jewel in the area. DO NOT believe the past stories - go see for yourself. ask the kids. kinda shocking really.
Lakeview's Principal Mr. Rivera has really opened up this school's communication paths with students, parents and teachers...a feat that is incredible especially at the high school level! Lakeview now has so much more than the magnet programs and college opportunities, it has real school spirit a welcoming spirit for all families!
Lakeview is a diverse school with many opportunities for a variety of students. The academics are top notch with students able to graduate with an associates degree as well as their high school diploma. LCHS also serves as a magnet and gives students the chance to try hands on the legal/criminal justice field, entrepreneurship, and television. If that wasn't enough dance and gymnastics are also offered. Assimilating into the school culture for students is easy as the student body is welcoming and students are very active.
Lakeview Centennial High School, Garland, TX We finally have a WONDERFUL and VERY SUPPORTIVE Principal. Mr. Rivera is such a BLESSING! he is always there for students, parents, and staff. he supports the students and is very positive! I am so glad he is here and is already making a difference. We need more parent involvement! Better communication between teachers and the "goings on" just because they play announcements doesn't mean all the teachers play them, all the students are paying attention! that information needs to reach the PARENTS! I'm proud to be a Lakeview parent! we have a lot of GREAT things at Lakeview and need to improve on a few. Teacher parent communication needs improvement. Teacher student communication needs improvement. Some teachers are really great and help the students achieve. Some do not care and that is a shame! I'm glad to see that Lakeview has academic pep rally's and academic recognition its not always just about sports and band. Great magnet opportunities. Great College opportunities!
Lakeview High School. Good college and career magnets. Plenty of activities and clubs. Need to work on dress code. New Principal, Mr. Rivera is doing a great job, is involved and seems to care a great deal. need more communication with parents! Need better teachers. A LOT of teachers here truly care about the students I wish I could list the great teachers we have so that the other teachers can learn from them. And then.... some teachers need to retire or get another job!
Lakeview High School. Better access to tutorials! too many lock downs! Good school. okay teachers some are great. some not willing to help students. Lunch too crowded. School dances too crowded. I am a proud student and like Lakeview. just a few changes needed.
This school has an emphasis on developing college and career skills and focusses on students. They just got a new leader for the 2013-14 school year and so far, the changes implemented have been positive. I am looking forward to the rest of the year.
grad from this school. i was the popular kid in class, still its about the student , AND how they let their friend effect their studies. teachers do care, its just the student in the class, if u get stuck in one of those REGULAR classes where teachers dont care, sit in the front and tell them youre interested in learning and they will teach you, i did this and more people stop talking and listened. Grad as a Collegiate student (: accepted to TWU/ UNLV.
My son is a junior at this school and he loves it. He has thrived , becoming more involved with his classes. He likes and respects his teachers and I only hear good things when he tells me about his classes. He enjoys the choir, the music program. He's very enthusiastic about taking psychology this year. I am so glad that I chose this school for him. He's been a student here since the 9th grade and it's just getting better.
