    "I absolutely love this school. The teachers are terrific and caring and responsive. I see some comments about the previous principal Ms Thompson - who I agree was less than delightful to deal with. She has, however, been replaced with Ms Brookshire-Simmons who is lovely and much more interested in individual students' needs. The class sizes are quite large - which is no surprise because the school is great and basically everyone in the neighborhood sends their kids to the school rather than private school. However, funds are currently being raised to build new buildings and double the square footage within the next 2 years. So the crowding problems should be resolved very shortly. It's a great neighborhood and wonderful that so many families in the community support the local schools and believe in them enough to see past the DISD reputation and attend our fantastic public school. I couldn't be happier with our experience."

    "Lakewood Elementary. #1 school. At Lakewood, they teach you. In California, they treat you like you're already supposed to know."

    "Lakewood Elementary has a caring community and high level of parent involvement . I do think there is a lot of emphasis on testing and grades. There is a lot of homework right from the early years and worksheet based curriculum. I wish the kids had a longer recess (15 mins to eat and 15 mins of play) and I am not happy if any member disrupts the class, this break can be taken away (and has many times) thereby punishing all the children. They need a chance to let off steam at lunch as the environment is very disciplined. Having said all that my child likes going to school for the most part and is proud of her school."

    "My son lost interest in science and math while at Lakewood. Although we moved to another school because of career, I'm glad we did. He has the spark back about learning and says he LOVES math and science again. I don't think I would've realized it was due to the school until we moved. The school is very regimented and not very creative as far as teaching goes. They do a lot of worksheets at Lakewood and move quickly. When he started at his new school they were a couple of months behind where Lakewood was but the telling part was that he did not remember how to do the lessons that he had already mastered at lakewood. I prefer that they move slower but actually learn and not just memorize the topics. The parental involvement is amazing and I think this makes up for a lot but the curriculum coud be much improved."

    "Our 2 daughters have received an excellent education at Lakewood Elementary. They both love going to school and score at high grade levels on the testing. The parental involvement is wonderful. I feel like the girls are getting the same education as they would receive in a private school, more importantly they have made great friends and love going to school. Ms. Thompson can be a little harsh, but I think she has to be to maintain control of an at-capacity elementary school."
