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
