    "I loved my LHS experience!! I am a recent Lakewood graduate and I can honestly say that I had the best experience here. I entered in the IB program but decided to just take AP classes my junior and senior years. I felt incredibly prepared for college and like I received the best public education I could have. Not only does Lakewood have great academic programs but they also have an incredible arts department, including music and theater, and a great sense of community. Principal Castagna was a fantastic principal and he has run Lakewood with extreme success for years. I am still so proud to be a Lakewood Tiger!!!"

    "My student transferred to LHS their sophmore year.. I have never meet the Principal in the two years he has been there. This principal is very removed from the parents and student body except for his class interuptions over the loud speaker for annoucements or e-mails to parents asking for donations for the school. Supposedly he has earned some award for a being a top principal. The school administrative staff is very aloof. Teachers are a mixed bag. Some are good , some do not want to be bothered and feel because the student is in HS a parent should have no involvement. Special Education , IEP and 504 services are sketchy and hard to enforce as is the case in most Jeffco schools. The school has a large student population and has it share of clicks"

    "This school is a unique one as it services students of all abilities from the special needs, to ESL, to AP, and has the top IB program in the state. While the test scores may not be the highest possible, you must consider the vast population of socioeconomically low students it services. This school should be a model for the nation equal access to a great education. The school is robust and has offerings in art, music, theater, sports, clubs, and a dedicated teaching staff."

    "Beware of Lakewood Hogh School! They are busing kids from other ares and my student ended up being bullied and assulted, the school stated its not there problem even tho they were fully aware of the problem. If I could do over again we would of nerver put our children in this. This is school is going down fast with the violence and drug problems. The principal and asst principal are the worst both yelled at me when speaking with about the problem, they have no need to be involed with trivial matters. DO NOT SEND YOUR KIDS THERE"
