Lakewood High School has a very strong community surrounding it. We have heaping amounts of talent and wonderful students who make everything so much brighter. Something I would like to see changed within our school is participation. Too many students at our school district don’t want to involve themselves in activities such as sports or clubs. I would like to communicate with them better and figure out a solution to this. Another important problem I would like to fix is accepting diversity. We all say we are ok with different but if someone has a “weird” personality, different look, or another way of life we say rude things. This is not ok. We need to accept that there is no such thing as normal. That everyone is different and special in their own way. I’m trying to bring more light to these issues one step at a time here at our school district!

I had a great experience at Lakewood High School. After attending for the past four years, I have a lot of great memories! Getting a brand new school senior year was a huge change. Although, all of the memories and friends made stayed. I had been apart of both the Tennis and Cheer-leading programs all four years and I had many great times within both! One of my favorite things about my whole high school career was meeting Mr. Thor. He is an amazing English teacher who also happened to be my tennis coach. After listening to his kind words, I would always form a smile across my face. The only thing that I will not miss about this school... is the physics homework.
There is lots of bullying that most students don’t notice or possibly choose to ignore. Administration doesn’t do much in the way of stopping it or making any effort. If you come to them with an issue you will typically be told to let things “blow over”. A large portion of the staff is amazing however and is always there to help support you however you may need. It’s a beautiful school with a great community
