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, Mrs. Gresham, works collaboratively with the school leadership team, staff, and parents.
Lakewood’s Spanish speaking bilingual assistant supports the 18% of students designated as English Language Learners. A psychologist, counselor, speech therapist, several instructional assistants, noon duty assistants, and a librarian provide additional support.
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 each semester.
Our rules at Lakewood are simple.
LAKEWOOD STUDENTS SHOW PRIDE IN ALL THEY DO:
- PROBLEM SOLVING
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 events that occur throughout the year. We also would like parents to become active members of the Parent Club, and to play a positive role in your child’s education.
