Lakeview School District (Calhoun) Reviews

My experience at Lakeview was mostly positive but not without problems. The dress code is in my opinion very sexiest and the administration has been in my experience very poor. In addition, the food is absolutely terrible and is comparable to what I'd imagine prison food to be like and the building (and especially the bathrooms) is filthy and disgusting. However, the majority of the teachers and educational staff that I have had have been absolutely wonderful, passionate, and talented. My interactions with them have made me a better person. The academics have been challenging but not overwhelming and most AP classes I have taken have been very good but there are a lot of blow off classes. Overall I would say Lakeview is an average high school and I'm satisfied with my experience there. If you live in Battle Creek, it's a no brainer to send your child here over other schools in the area, but if you are considering where to move, I would look elsewhere

I am an alum of Lakeview School District. I went to Lakeview from Kindergarten through High School, and I'm glad I did! When we first moved to Battle Creek, my father was repeatedly told that Lakeview was by far the best school in the area. They were right! Lakeview not only prepared me well for college, but also instilled in me a lot of the principles necessary to be a successful and contributing member of society. I would recommend anyone in the Battle Creek, MI area consider Lakeview for their children.
Over all, Lakeview is a wonderful place to get an education that will top a majority of the schools in our area. A lot of the staff is phenomenal at what they do and care a great deal; however, there is some staff that does not compare well to others. Lakeview's diversity is steadily increasing, but a lot of our school is predominately white, and some of these people hold values that do not line up with mine. The staff and administration tend to shut anyone down that is saying cruel things about another person, and we have lots of teachers fighting very hard for the equity and well being of our school. I am happy I got the opportunity to attend here, and be able to be apart of so many great educational classes, clubs, and groups over the years.
