School Reviews

7 months ago
Lakewood Christian School was a perfect place for our daughter. She attended preschool - 8th grade and we feel she had a great education. She learned very strong writing skills, and enjoyed the creative environment. She was in choir, drama, and worship band. She loved each teacher and she know they loved her. She made life long friends that even now that she is in high school are her closest friends. The kids at LCS are so nice, and the academics are top notch!
