The international bachlorrete program at lakewood is fantastic! The teachers know what they're doing and they prepare very college ready students, although the work load isn't for every child. Despite the IB program being amazing the regular classes tend to be on the lesser side with less motivated teachers and not enough opportunities for individual improvement. Altogether the school has a great community of kids and is very successful for a public school in its location.

Lakewood High School offers small learning communities for students to learn certain studies of what best suits them and rigorous AP (advanced placement) classes for a better chance of getting accepted to universities. Moreover, Students take advantage of all Lakewood High School's educational and extracurricular opportunities such as the AP Capstone program where students prepare for college using collaboration skills along with writing abilities for essays, block schedule to encourage students to take advantage of classes to fulfill the A-G requirements which can lead to a four-year university, and activities such as clubs and sports which Lakewood High School is known to be the best at Volleyball, wrestling, and baseball. Although this is like every high school, Lakewood High School gave me the chance to build on communication skills with other students, improvements in my studies, and memorable years to remember.
I have enjoyed attending Lakewood High School the past three years and I am looking forward to my senior year. I am currently enrolled in the highest program offered at Lakewood High School, Merit Scholars. As a Merit Scholar we are highly respected by staff and the staff and teachers encourage us to continue our education and do our best. In other programs offered at Lakewood High School I'm not sure if the same encouragement is offered but I would like to believe it is. My school is a school I am proud to go to and proud to represent. Go Lancers!
