Lakewood High Is a good school. Many of the teachers there are very helpful and want to see succeed. My favorite part was playing sports and being active in many of extracurricular activities. Being in clubs are very fun. My senior year we got a new principal, I thought it would have ruined everything but I loved my new principal and he made my senior year great!

I like extracurricular activities. Just about everyone had a great school spirit, and it was very fun. Being that this is my last year there, I would want to see a lot of change. For starters, the lunches should change. It's not bad but it's not good as well. I felt like some of the school rules were very much uncalled for. It would be nice to see more sports programs come back like tennis. Overall, the school isn't a bad place to be... but I feel a lot of change is gonna come to the school in the future.
Lakewood Is a very athletic and academic school. Overall we have 9-12th grade. The school provides everyone with equal opportunity for success. Teachers, administrators, and guidance counselors do their very best to help students out. They greet, encourage, uplift and confine in a relationship with students . Students are involved in the talented and gifted programs , athletics , clubs and other organizations around the school. The athletics program runs good.
