If the elementary schools have a dress code why don't the high school have the same, and they should have after school program so the students won't get into problems with drugs, let lakewood police check the students of what they have in their back packs and purses, better be safe than sorry

Lakewood High School is a school of unity. The teachers and students are all working together to make the school a better place. This school is unlike any other : there are problems here just like any other school, but there is also a lot of greatness that happens in that school. Over the past few years it seems that Lakewood has gone down a little, but we all know that its on its way back up. This school is somethimg really special.

Lakewood High School is a very unsafe school. Students join gangs and do drugs.The teachers do not care about their students nor about their safety. Lakewood is a school that I will never send my child to.
