Lakewood High School Reviews

There have been some no so good experiences, but overall everyone here is so diverse and kind to each other. The teachers are so loving and caring, and they try to understand where their students come from and what situations are going on outside of school. The staff is outstanding, they have really tried to change things this year and so far it has been working, the students have been behaving way more than in the beginning of the year. Lakewood High School has really turned things around with the way they inspire the students to try harder to get better grades, and to stop abusing of drugs and other substances. I am very happy with the change being applied to the school, I feel a lot safer this year than I have ever at this school. The classes are very entertaining and the teachers do a great job with keeping the students attention.

My experience at Lakewood High School was filled with many fun memories and struggles. Most teachers really care about their students' success and help motivate those to do their work. Not only do the teachers develop good relationships with the students, but the administrators do too. Being able to communicate with students about their dreams and goals really shows how the staff members want what's best for us. Our school may not be the best, but it definitely provides students with a great support system, regardless of grades.
In Lakewood High School there is a diversity of cultures. The school treats everyone the same way no matter the color of your skin, it has a great staff trying to push their students to do better. Normally when you mention the school to other people out of the city their reactions are a bit rough almost feeling bad for us. I would like to see change on how they think of us and show them we are not what they say. We are very determined and have the same goals and potential as other schools.
