Lakeville Elementary School
4 Best Public Elementary Schools in New York City Area
- Great Neck Public Schools, NY
Senior: I liked that there were multiple classes that you could take. The teachers are very experienced and most have been teaching for many years. The school however has strict rules. For example, they have banned fidget spinners and Pokemon cards, as they were getting distracting. The school is about 80% Asian. I like how Lakeville spreads the message of respect.

Niche User: We have had an excellent experience thus far. My son comes home everyday and tells me how much he loves school. Compared to some of the other school districts I feel that our kindergarten teacher has the right ideas about homework. She gives a small amount and a week to complete. This allows for a no pressure environment. After all this is Kindergarten. Having said that my son has learned so much in just a few months!

- New York City Geographic District No. 1, NY
Freshman: I have given NEST+M a 4/5 stars because it excelles in benefitting the students lifestyle. Most of the teachers are great at teaching, creating hands on activities and group activities that would most likely benefit us later on. But at the same time, they are leient enough to extend a deadline if it’s absolutely needed for the student’s life outside of their busy school life. Additionally, we have college week where the teachers would explain to us about certain colleges (and universities). And there is also a college office. However, there aren’t many clubs, NEST+M is still developing in clubs. A few examples, Key club, tech crew, debate, and student government. Correlating, the PA helps out a lot, especially in setting up school events. The hold bake sales and breakfast for the adults and teachers on some mornings. Overall, NEST+M is a gifted and talented k-12 school, with different students coming from all five boroughs, bringing in their diverse cultures and unique colors.

Parent: The school experience has exceeded our expectations. Perhaps it's the deep passion our son's teacher has for her job, or super engaged PTO, whatever the combination, this school as a secret sauce that must surely be difficult to replicate.
