Built in Northwest Lodi in 1965, Lakewood School is on a modified traditional learning schedule. It serves 550 students from Transitional Kindergarten through Sixth Grade with two special education classes for 4, 5 and 6th grades.
Lakewood’s Principal, Mr. Spaulding, has been at the school since 2005 working collaboratively with the school leadership team as well as with staff and parents. Parent input is encouraged during meetings of the English Language Advisory Committee, School Site Council, and monthly Parent Club meetings which are held the second Tuesday of every month at 6:30 pm in the library.
Lakewood’s Spanish speaking bilingual assistant supports the 18% of students designated as English Language Learners. A psychologist, speech therapist, several instructional assistants, noon duty assistants and a librarian provide additional support on a part time basis.
Lakewood continues to be a place where high academic achievement is an emphasis. Equal access to curriculum standards and materials is assured for all students. Students receive a comprehensive education focusing on language arts and math, but also areas including science, social studies, physical education, music, computers, and Life Skills. Students are rewarded regularly for their good citizenship, and academic achievement is recognized at an Honor Awards ceremony at the end of the school year.
Our three rules are simple:
Make Good Choices
Life Skills continue to be a focus with our learning community. Practicing the skills of caring, common sense, cooperation, curiosity, effort, flexibility, friendship, initiative, integrity, organization, patience, perseverance, problem solving, responsibility and sense of humor helps build for the future.
Parents are encouraged to visit and participate in the classroom and to take part in the events that occur throughout the year. We also would like parents to become an active member of the Parent Club and School Site Council and to play a positive role in your child’s education.
