Great leadership and support staff! We love Mr. Aston and Mrs. Porter. They work to ensure a positive learning experience for the students. My boys enjoyed their years at Lakewood and they were ready for Northpointe.

We have been more than pleased with the staff and teachers at Lakewood. I know for a fact that they test early and often for learning ability; we have been given copies of both a beginning of the year and end of the year test in every grade at our parent teacher conferences. Principal Jones was not even there in August of 2012. We moved to this area so that our children could attend this school and have no regrets at all.

My daughter liked and enjoyed her KG at this school. I can rate it 9 out of 10.

I am very disappointed at the educational approach Lakewood has taken with my child. If you are the parent of a child with special needs and or learning disabilities, I suggest you look elsewhere. I had to higher an advocate for the school to finally decide to test my child for a learning disability. The test showed that he indeed has a learning disability. My child is being left behind. We are currently looking to move locations in order to change schools. Please note the positive comments are dated. The school is going downhill as the rating of 7 out of 10 proves it. There are a few good teachers. Unfortunately, the bad out weighs the good.

My son just recently graduated from Lakewood Elementary. My son and our family have thoroughly enjoyed all 5 years he attended. I wish it still went to 6th grade!!

Not impressed. Very average at best. A dismal 63 percentile rating in the state of Texas. Who is running this place??? Principal Jones seemed to focus on trivial details and not on educational excellence. No sport activities and a bunch of staff that think they are outstanding while they are really just average at best. The ranking demonstrates the lack of effort, professionalism and misguided organization.

The quality of character of the teachers and staff exceeds the expectations of every parent....it is rare to see all parents thrilled about a school...happy with all aspects.... you could not pay for this type of training at any public or private school.

I've had 3 children go through Lakewood Elementary, and it was a wonderful experience! The staff is very caring with the children and responsive to their needs and those of the parents. The leadership has always been top-notch, and it's been rated Exemplary many, many times through their hard work and effort. I've lived in their area for 23 years to make sure all my kids went to that school. Love LES!

Lakewood Elementary is a special place ...tucked behind trees and hidden within a residential neighborhood...where most kids still walk or ride the bus a short distance to school. Parents are always welcome and truly have a voice. Our teachers and staff are highly dedicated to giving our children the best education through a safe, loving and positive environment. You will always be greeted with a smile and a friendly hello ...from the secretary-to the janitor-to the principle- or maybe even from a parent volunteer!! Lakewood is a school that deserves recognition!!!!

LES has been an exemplary school many times due to awesome teachers, staff, and principals. The PTO is a wonderful caring group of parents who work hard volunteering to give our children the extras like books and playground equipment field trips, book authors greeting the children and on and on. The parents who volunteer hundreds of hours a month to make our school and its students shine in all areas. I have son who is now in college who was a student at lakewood and I have a daughter who have been there since kindegarden and now in fourth grade. LES rocks !!!! & cares !!! go Lakewood!!!!

Lakewood Elementary is a very special school that makes all of the kids feel important while providing an excellent learning enviroment. The teachers are very dedicated and provide many enrichment activities such as daily science experiments. The majority of parents are involved with the PTO which provides many wonderful events such as a year- long reading program, a Fall Festival, and a Spring Carnival.

Lakewood and it's staff are wonderful! The willingness of the staff to provide additional support for struggling and special needs students has been exemplary. Teachers and adminstrators are very responsive to requests by phone or email. My only 'complaint' is all the parents who organize events for 4:00 in the afternoon and call it 'evening.' They have no concept of the hours that most people work.

My son attended Lakewood and the staff was excellent. He received all the extra help he needed. He had attended a private school in K and 1st, however, moving him to Lakewood was the best thing we could have done for his education.

Overall educational quality is good with school receiving exemplary rating for six of the seven years we have lived in the district. Reputation for dealing with disabled students is poor, as I can verify with my disabled child's personal experience.

Lakewood is a family like school. The teachers, staff, and volunteers are GREAT. This school has so many parent volunteers. There available for any function that comes up. If you really want your child to learn something, then this is the school to go to. 'K-4' They really inforce reading and writing. My daughter went to Lakewood for five years and it was a blast. I love everything Lakewood does and is about. I was a really involved parent at the school. I was involed in the Yearbook and the Cougar Spirit Store. The principal is a really hands on lady. She's the best. Lakewood is all about Sucess. 'Lakewood expects Sucess' That's there moto. Lakewood will be missed....

Lakewood Elementary offers grades K-4 in a serene neighborhood setting. The teachers and staff are highly educated and caring. There are a number of identified 'gifted' students. Those students are paired with certified 'GT' teachers. In addition, there is a specialist to assist the teachers in meeting those student's needs. Unfortunately, the student population has outgrown the physical building requiring additional temporary space be provided for 4 classes. In addition, the students only attend art classes every 6 weeks. LES has a very active PTO. It raises several thousand dollars each year for the school. Parents are always welcome and the teachers are very responsive to their students' parents.

This is a great school and always has been. When I attended Lakewood Elementary I remember having fun on a daily basis. I remember learning many new things and meeting new friends every year. My daughter has come home with the same love of school that Lakewood Elementary gave me so many years ago. I would recomend this school to anyone no matter the level of your childs' abilities or the reservations you have had at other schools. Your child will fit in at Lakewood and so will you.

I have 2 children at LES and have been very satisfied with the school academically and socially. The staff is great, the location is good/safe, the environment is very pro-student, and there is a lot of opportunity for parent involvement. Academically, the school is really good, though I would question the assertion that all of the students labeled 'GT' are in fact really 'gifted' above many of their other 'very bright' peers (seems to often be a forum for parent competition). I think there are some definite holes in that particular program, but overall we've found the school to be academically challenging with a very positive atmosphere. In thinking of selling our home and moving, we would only consider another home that would allow our children to continue attending LES.
