School Reviews

  • Recommended September 12, 2012 - I am a former student. I attended Lake Region from 1995-1999. I miss it so much, the staff was awesome and we had the best students around. I highly recommend this school to anyone with a student about to go into high school, or as a transfer. There is bad in all schools, so don''t let the other negative comments scare ya away. I give 100% thanks to the staff that was there when I was, I say because of there care and devotion they helped me prepare myself so that I am where I am today. I own a multi million dollar company in polk county and steady growing. They prepared me for the business world. Thank you - Posted by Student/Alumni

Are the Three Rs Robbing our Children?
For far too long the American public school system has failed to address “out-of-school” factors like poverty and their impact on what happens in the classroom. As the nation continues to become increasingly diverse, many schools are adopting comprehensive approaches to education that account for the unique needs of students so that each child is prepared for their future and not just for a year-end test.
States Fight to Teach “Ignorant” Science to Students
Wyoming recently became the first state to reject the Next Generation Science Standards because of concern regarding lessons that teach human-caused climate change. Several other states have also taken measures to reject the standards, which has some education officials concerned about the quality of instruction students in those states will receive.
School-to-Prison Pipeline Persists Despite Local, State and National Efforts
Inadequate funding and resources for schools, harsh zero-tolerance discipline policies, police presence in public schools, and de facto segregation continue to create school environments in which poor and minority students have little chance of succeeding. The result is a continuation of the school-to-prison pipeline that has been commonplace in the American education system for decades, despite federal, state and local efforts to curb the problem.
