School Reviews

Lakewood High School is a school of unity. The teachers and students are all working together to make the school a better place. This school is unlike any other : there are problems here just like any other school, but there is also a lot of greatness that happens in that school. Over the past few years it seems that Lakewood has gone down a little, but we all know that its on its way back up. This school is somethimg really special.

Lakewood High School is a very unsafe school. Students join gangs and do drugs.The teachers do not care about their students nor about their safety. Lakewood is a school that I will never send my child to.
