School Reviews

  • Recommended October 05, 2009 - I went to this school for all of my HS career. I loved Lakeview even though I was one who struggled to focus on my work due to the horrid homelife. Everyone was so helpful in getting me where I needed to be to graduate. Now, I am on the road to a great and successful career and life! Thanks LFO! - Posted by Student/Alumni
