Lakeland Central School District Reviews

Lakeland Central School District overall is a great district! There are plenty of resources available to students and parents. The faculty and staff make sure that all of the students are in the best shape possible- mentally and physically. Most importantly, the academics is out of this world. The education really prepares students for the next grade level and even college. They make sure that students are ahead in every way, shape, and form. The only thing that they may change is the administration listening to the students more for what they want, and bringing in more diversity. Other than that, Lakeland Central School District is fantastic.

I attended Ben Franklin, Copper Beech Middle School, and Lakeland High School and received a wonderful education. These schools have helped me become a better writer, reader, and an overall well-rounded person. I have had amazing teachers throughout my education at these schools who have inspired me to become a teacher as well. The schools in the district all celebrate diversity and the importance of accepting others even if they are different from you. They have taught me the importance of working hard and earning good grades. Recently, many teachers have been retiring so I hope that the district continues to hire teachers of the same quality that I had when I was attending. The district has endless activities and sports for children to take part in and have a strong sense of community. They encourage students to take part in activities outside of school and show how wonderful it can be to be part of a team.
I spent my entire life enrolled in the Lakeland School District, from the experiences I've had the quality of education is decent, the teachers are to fault for their quote on quote styles of teaching. AP class teachers were all quality teachers however. The school physically is small compared to the student body and they add more doors into the hallways making them even smaller. The bathrooms are gross and aren't in the best condition the toilets are the only things that work properly. The food served has no real nutritional value and seem very cheap. Overall the school is safe and the quality of ones education is determined by the teachers they are put with.
