Outstanding school. Very welcoming to new families and works to continually improve and meet the needs of students and parents. Smaller size that helps to facilitate healthy kid attitudes toward all at every grade level.

We have moved three times and the kids have thus, been to three schools. This school is by far, the best school of the three. It is friendly, challenging and also accommodating to different learning styles. It is a privelege to go to this school and live in the district.

I am in this school district and the administrator treats us the same way (see April 15, 2008). I feel like he picks out kids and those just don't get the same chance as the others. No matter what they do it will never be good enough and we have been told they can not help us. Its sad to experience because I have always been told how good this school is.

At first blush, this school seems like a good one. The students are quite nice and many of the teachers exemplary.However, be careful if you are at all different from the perceived staus quo. For example, if you have a problem with a teacher or are at the school from outside the district-Good Luck. There is absolutely no help from teacher or administrator. Only insults are bantered about. My children, both 'A' students, were not even able to complete a single school year, but returned to their neighborhood school. Please see the comments from the parent of January 3rd, 2005 and take heed. I wish I had, because the comments do not apply solely to children with special needs, but anyone looking for a special helping hand. Most importantly, if you are looking to attend through Wisconsin's open enrollment, you might want to look elsewhere.

We have had three children attend LCS and have been very happy with the core curriculum as well as the art, music, physical education, guidance, health, technology, choir/band, and foreign language programs. We have also had experience with the special needs education program at Lake Country and are completely happy with the support and programming that our child has received. We moved into this district so that our children could benefit from a K-8 experience and feel very blessed in that decision. We feel Lake Country offers much more than other districts near us and has saved much of the curriculum that other districts have been forced to cut. LCS continues to offer our children a firm educational foundation that prepares them well for their high school experience.

Lake Country School is about as close as you can come to quality private school education in a public school. I would say a full 90% of the staff goes above and beyond, and are, in the words of my 7th grader, 'amazing.' Or sometimes he calls his current teacher 'da bomb.' Especially in the upper grades, they constantly improve curriculum and strive for 21st century learning. LCS has a spacious library media center, art and music rooms, and 3 state-of-the-art computer labs. Parents are a welcome part of the educational community and are visible in the hallways always. We have sent three children to LCS and are sad to think of ever leaving. It is a very, very special place.

Everyone has done a wonderful job this year with our child.He no longer comes home crying and covering his ears as he did in our old school.He has friends who like him for who he is although he doesn't have the best social graces at times.He comes home happy and is feeling better about himself.It wouldn't of happened with out your help.I really can't express to enough how much I appreciate everything you have done for our child. Meeting with me and discussing his difficulties and the willingness to try a different approach. The dedication and care you have shown for our child is immeasurable.Thank you for making our first year back to Lake Country a wonderful experience.We know that we made the right choice to move back. For the sole purpose to place our children in school district that is dedicated to their children and fosters a caring environment.

My son has been attending Lake Country School for almost 2 years and it has been great. He is special needs and where his last school completely failed, Lake Country has really stepped up and has done an excellent job in getting him the help he needs. His progress has been amazing and their patience to get him to where he is now is nothing short of amazing. When he started at Lake Country he was difficult to handle in the classroom and now he is catching up at a very fast pace. I can only attribute this to the guidance and patience of his teachers and the excellent feedback I receive and communication with his teachers have really helped with getting him the help he needs outside of school. I commute about 1.5 hours each morning and evening to keep him at Lake Country. That should say enough!!

My daughter was new nearly 2 years ago in 6th grade. Coming from a school in the south this school was a welcomed change. Students were receptive and friendly. The school is much smaller than the schools in the south. Teachers are very nice. The curriculum is challenging, unlike the schools my daughter had been used to. The parent involvement is huge at this school. She will be an 8th grader next year which will be her last year at this school. I was shocked though that they had no video monitoring system as all the others schools we had been at, had them in the halls and everywhere. They are adding some now in the parking lot and in parts of the school next year.

For average and above average kids, Lake Country School was a fine school. However, if your child doesn't accel or is special needs, please consider moving into another district within the Arrowhead district. Arrowhead has a wonderful CD program once your child gets to highschool, but Lake Country's handling of special needs or at risk kids is pitiful at best. We actually moved our family specifically to get our three children out of Lake Country School.

Lake County is an excellent school! I am in 8th grade and on my 10th year there (Preschool through 8th grade), and will be sad to leave. There are excellent teachers. I think its a wonderful place for children to learn. I speak from experience! As you can see from the test scores, children here are taught very well in all subjects. This is one excellent school!
