Wow!, cant believe the previous two ratings - sounds like a disgruntled parent who did not get their way, I guess every school has a few of those. I don't have children, but my neighbors and friends rave about Lakewood. Actually heard that staff from Randall have gone there several times to see their technological plan and are playing catch up. Also, with regard to the conditions of the school, maybe someone should visit and see the renovations that will take place over the next two years. From what I hear, Lakewood has greatly improved over the last several years and I can't believe someone would take time to post some of the previous comments. Really? Sounds awfully snobby and condescending.

I have been at lakewood for 7 years now, and I have to say I do not recommend it. Every year I see more and more children open enrolling to other schools. The parents leaving are always happier at Randal or Wheatland (just ask around town). If you can drive your kids, do them a favor and send them to a school that has already proven themselves. This last year has really been a nightmare for me!

We have been apart of the district now for a year, moving here at the end of the school year last year. We took a tour and gave it a try. We have one in junior high, and one going into 4K next year. We love the new administration and what they are trying to accomplish for our school. This school is making great strides with great staff and wonderful advances in technology. I am a teacher myself so I am pretty judgmental when talking about education. Lakewood has a very positive future, and my family is proud to be a part of that!

Would not have my kids in any other school around. We live in genoa city, but choose to drive the kids to lake wood.. Have one kid that want there now in high-school. We have two other that are in the school. Can not say any thing but great thing about teachers and other staff!!! We talk to our kids teachers all the time. Not just to see how the kids are doing but as friends..

We are new to Lakewood because my daughter is in kindergarten, but I a very happy with it so far. I am excited to be a part of the future changes they have planned. I love the one on one attention my child receives, I also love the parent/ teacher interaction.

My daughter had been going to Lakewood for four years. Each year we are very impressed with her teachers and the staff. The communication between teachers and parents is exceptional and we feel that any concerns we may have are addressed in a professional and timely manner. Her teachers have all done a great job of challenging her academically and giving us tools to help challenge her at home as well.

Lakewood school is top notch, hands down! I love Lakewood, my wife loves Lakewood, but more importantly, my child loves Lakewood! There is nothing better than having your child wake up on any given morning, excited to go to school. The teachers are so caring and patient and you can tell, they love their jobs! I would recommend Lakewood School to anyone and everyone.

I am grateful to work with patient and tolerant paraprofessionals at Lakewood School. These individuals provide special education students with individualized care and teacher directed specialized instruction. These students are provided with sensory and movement breaks within a staffed sensory room. Every effort is made to provide the students with care to meet their specific needs, with materials and accomodations to their learning environment.. Mrs. Debbie Moses

Lakewood School is: ever changing with the demands of the state, open to new ideas/approaches, keeping up with best and appropriate practices in terms of overall education for its students, welcoming to new families as well as current, a great place of learning, reaching out to the community, desiring parent involvement, striving for greatest, always looking to how they can improve,and most importantly a great choice for your child.

Lakewood School is amazing! The administration, staff, teachers are wonderful. My husband and I went in for a private tour prior to enrollment and we were so impressed! Everyone we spoke to was extremely welcoming and very informative. All of our questions were answered as well as different programs the school offers (PBIS being one of them) were explained, etc. We knew when we left that afternoon, this was definitely the right school for our child and we could not be happier with our decision. Our child loves Lakewood and looks forward to going to school each day! It has been and continues to be a positive experience for our family. I highly recommend going in and visiting the school, speaking to the administration and staff to experience it for yourself . Go in and personally hear and see all of the wonderful things they are doing there. The school was already going in the right direction and it continues to progress, including building renovations that are in the near future. If we are this happy now, we can t wait to see what the future holds for our child!

What an amazing school! The staff is caring and dedicated. Administration is patient and kind. We moved from a private school to Lakewood and we could not be happier. Our children are thriving. Keep up the GREAT work!

Not sure of the previous ratings, but Lakewood has come a long way in the last couple of years. Perhaps those families that chose to leave should have gotten more involved with the school. My family loves the caring atmosphere and the individual attention each of our three children receive. Having visited other schools, I can say hands down that Lakewood offers the best support services. They have also come a long way with regard to technology - my third grade son is teaching me how to do things on a computer. Thank you to Lakewood school for being such welcoming school.

It is very sad that the school isn't run the way it used to be. The school is fine as long as your child does not have special needs. My child was diagnosed with an ASD and we had to fight for many years for her to get services. Even now, she is constantly bullied and the kids trick her so she gets into trouble all the time. Whenever we (or she) complain they constantly tell her to ignore them, but the bullies don't get into trouble. The bullies run that school, not the teachers and certainly not the administration. The worst thing that happened to that school was when Ms. Vail (old administrator) was pushed out. She cared so much about the kids, knew all of their names, had lunch with them, gave them hugs. She was wonderful and the new people who are now there could care less about your kid. The number of kids they lose to school choice each year speaks for itself.

Lakewood had many flaws as many schools do in the area. But this school is one of the best. The children are friendly and the teachers more often than not are respectable educators. From K-8 The education is as high any parent would like for the childs developing mind.!

I believe Lakewood could be a wonderful school if the children with ADHD were not singled out. I also believe the staff needs more training, and understanding on how to work with these children. I have 2 children diagnosed with this medical condition and have actually considered transfering them to another school that can meet their needs. I know schools get extra funding for children with this problem and it seems that the funding is being used elsewhere...because in the last 3 years since the 1st diagnosis... there has been no extra help or understanding from many of the staff...(Excluding a few wonderful teachers...) and administation. They need to look at meeting 'All' of the childrens needs. Not just the kids that they classify as 'The Good Ones!'.

Our family of 5 moved to Twin Lakes and are pleased with Lakewood school. My daughter has Mrs. Niebuhr for her Kindergarden teacher and she is phenomenal! Whats awesome about Lakewood is that the Administration will take a request for a specific teacher under consideration. I truely wish more schools would do this. Thanks Mrs. Niebuhr for giving my daughter a great Kindergarden experience. I do have to say though that Lakewood does not organize an open house for the kids before school, which I ended up just taking my kids in on my own time and visitng. And the school supply list we received through the mail came within a week of school. Parents are ready to get alittle organized before then. thanks and hope this may find more teachers and parents leaving feedback.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.
GreatSchools' ratings currently reflect 2012-13 testing data.



Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the WSAS test. As a result of these changes, proficiency scores for Wisconsin schools are lower than they were in previous years.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
