School Reviews

  • Recommended January 17, 2015 - I graduated last year. Despite having a negligent counselor during my freshman/sophomore years at the school, I would say this is a great school. My counselor during my junior/senior years was a complete opposite of the one at east campus, she was very supportive and actually listened to my requests. The teachers I had were also very helpful and they were very focused on their teachings and on helping students. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended February 28, 2012 - I transferred to Lake Park in the middle of my senior year. The teachers were very helpful with keeping me at the same pace as the rest of the students. They are also very focused on the quality of their teaching. I learned more in a semester than I did in three and a half years at my other school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
