I love Lakeridge! I really enjoy all the different kind of classes you can take.I love the music classes there, and i love how you can do open gym in some sports, it gives you the opportunity to see how well your doing in that sport and what you need to work on to improve on the sport. I love the Lakeridge facilitie! They are so kind to everyone ! They never want anyone to fail.They bend over backwards to help every student that they can, and they do all they can for that student.
