We feel so fortunate to have Lakewood as our neighborhood school! No school is perfect, but the staff here truly cares about the students, and they're working hard to build an inclusive, supportive community of teachers, kids and parents. We've had teachers go above and beyond for our child during "normal" years, and we truly appreciate the transparent, straightforward, consistent communications we've received from the principal since the pandemic started. Lakewood doesn't get the attention that the more flashy elementary schools in AAPS receive...and I kind of feel like it's a hidden gem.
Lakewood is a fantastic school, and I would highly recommend it. The Principal, Eddie Latour, is amazing and we have loved every teacher that my children have had over the years. In my opinion, Lakewood does not score as well as other AAPS elementary schools because of the diversity in the student population (we have a number of students where English is not their first language and they do not always test as well as native English speakers). I love the diversity at the school and the exposure that my children get to other languages, cultures, etc. Lakewood is also a wonderful community; we are very fortunate to have so many involved and wonderful families.
The teachers and administrators are so dedicated to this school. I could not be happier with how all three of my kids have been treated and have accelerated here. One of my children require additional help from support staff and they are amazing. Everyone goes above and beyond.
Over crowded classrooms and the new principal let there be 29 students in a first grade classroom. He is coming with a middle school background who needs to have more classes on working with elementary. Don't feel they are being honest with the parents when a kindergartner is working behind and they pass him to first instead of repeating kindergarten where he was not ready. They need to do testing of children entering kindergarten to make sure they are ready. Also, when I have called the principal doesn't return calls or emails. I have been a former teacher and I know how they system works. Someone outside needs to be monitoring this school.
