Lakeview Community Schools Reviews

For being a rural school that runs a lot on farming backgrounded kids this school is the kind of everyone knows everyone. This school likes to advertise a bully free area, however there is lots of bullying that happens where nothing is done to stop it. Not only is there bullying being done but there are also some teachers who do not teach any material throughout the year. In one class all that would be done is watch videos, be handed notes, and tests be taken. Lots of students end up not learning anything but they still pass because the teacher likes them. So yes some teachers are not the greatest and then there are some really great teachers that are constantly there to help students if they don't understand the material and are always willing to do more for their students.

Most of the teachers here are pretty good. They enjoy what they do and like to communicate with the students in any way they can. They are very approachable and easy to get along with. Some, however, are not this way. A few tend to pick favorite students and put all of their focus and attention towards them, barely leaving any time for the rest. I have been on the other side of this where I wasn't a favorite and it made learning in their class quite difficult. The head faculty could also use some work. They discriminate against kids that they don't like, and are much more strict with them. When it comes to sports, the coaching needs to be improved. Personally, I have had very bad experiences with the coaches here. Volleyball was ruined because the coaches didn't give a fair chance and would only play who they liked. Luckily, some of the people on the team made it more enjoyable, which encouraged me to stay out.
I have had a pretty great time through my years at this school. All the teachers are great and really care about all of their students. Being in activities and sports is highly encouraged in our school and that is important. Everyone that attends Lakeview is very lucky to go to this school!
