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.
Fantastic atmosphere. Teachers & staff are always willing to help you & your child (ren) succeed!
Great school and absolutely amazing teachers & staff! My son just started school this year and Pre-K teachers: Ms. Pam and her helping staff turn him from "not-wanting-to" go to school to looking forward to school! Absolutely magical!
Teachers and staff are amazing - wonderful environment where our children can learn!
It is the perfect school! Great teachers, great location, and great community:)
Very caring staff that loves what they do. Quality education - feel that my child is learning above and beyond what she needs to know. Each teacher truly cares about the kids in their class. Couldn't ask for a better school
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 is simply awsome, from the administration, teachers, and all other staff.
Exemplary school. Principal, staff, teachers all nice. Excellent school.
