Lakeland Central School District Reviews
I much enjoyed my experience at Lakeland High School. Throughout my time there, I was able to meet many supportive friends who I know I'll have forever. I also received a great deal of assistance from the staff that has made me feel secure in my future academic endeavors. I enjoyed the events that were hosted, such as the annual football game fundraiser for breast cancer, and all of the pep rallies. These events created a united student body that was so fun to be a part of and grow in. In the future, I would like to see an increase in the variation of classes offered, specifically concerning preparation for the future. I would also like to see the school make an effort to start preparing the underclassmen for college so that they don't feel rushed and overwhelmed once they reach their upperclassmen years. Overall, my time at Lakeland High School is one that I wouldn't change much about and would always take the opportunity to experience it again!
I have been a student in the Lakeland Central School District since Kindergarten, and my experience has been almost nothing but positive. The elementary schools and middle school have extremely dedicated teachers that do their best to make learning as fun as possible, and offer numerous after school childcare programs for parents who have to work later. My only negative comments would be about the two high schools, Walter Panas and Lakeland. It is quite evident that more resources are allocated to Lakeland High School as opposed to Walter Panas High School, so Panas students are often left with lesser quality resources. Overall, the administration does a wonderful job of listening to the concerns of students and doing their best to make the Lakeland Central School District a place where students have the opportunity to thrive.
Since I am a very artistic person, I love their art program and the teachers that are apart of it. Most of the teachers I have had were really supportive and ready to help with any questions I had. However, I do believe that the lack of school trips and field trips have really hurt the students. We need to be able to go on educational trips to maximize our experiences and intelligence. Most of the other schools in the area go to DC for a field trip and I've heard so many amazing stories from them about their experience and the great things they were able to learn first hand. It is sad we have to miss out on those things and I wish Lakeland would end the ban on school trips.
