Lakeland is a place for growth, adaption, and, most importantly, love. Over my 12 years as a student in this district, I have met a fantastic group of friends, and I have had teachers that I all wish could win the lottery. The teachers at Lakeland care about you, they want to see you succeed in life, and they do everything in their power to help you. I was always an outgoing child, almost to outgoing, and Lakeland is a place where you are accepted as you are, loud Italian voice and all. Three weeks into my freshman year, my father passed away. The days following my father's passing, families, and sports teams in the district filled my home with love and support. All of the sports teams, including coaches, all came together and comforted my mother; it is because of them, three years later, I am writing this. My major in college will be education, and one day I hope to come back to Lakeland and teach. Lakeland is the district I would pick in a heartbeat to raise my future children.

I wish I went to like Yorktown HS, or a private one(not Kennedy HS, that's worse), but this school has good standards as a high school, but don't expect to get into a college that is top 50 unless your like high high honor roll. Kind of wish I went to like Mamaroneckor Scarsdale HS, at least I can get into a real college, not just a SUNY. Good for kids if you want them to get an average job and life, like a teacher or psychologist. Most of the kids there will probably not be exciting when they are older; some kids are amazing, it just sucks that they went to this school.
I moved to Lakeland high school during my junior year. I moved from Yonkers. It was hard at first to make friends and to fit in.But after a couple of weeks, I started to like the school. The school offers better school lunch, offer more classes and clubs. Everybody is nice to each other. No fights, no bullying, no problems. I enjoy being part of the lakeland family.
