School Reviews

  • Recommended November 19, 2013 - HOME AWAY FROM HOME! My children and our family love the school. The academics, sports, arts, and clubs are great. Most importantly, the teachers and the administration are the best and take genuine interest in your child, helping them develop to the best of their ability as an individual. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended October 21, 2013 - Academy at the Lakes is the best school I''ve ever went to. The fact that I can go to my teacher at any time and ask for help and they will drop everything just to help me. The students there are so nice, warm welcoming, polite, and caring. The teachers/ faculty and I/ students have such a good relationship I can say. If we have a question about our homework we can text them and they will text back and help us with whatever we need. The school is more than amazing I love going there every day, I love saying Good Morning to everyone and getting a Good Morning in return. Academy also has a variety of different clubs, me personally love engaging in our schools society by being a student ambassador and work with our amazing Technology department, But there are so many opportunities that can be offered at Academy but it is your decision to take advantage of those opportunities. I do hope you will choose academy to be your new preschool, elementary school, and or high school. - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended October 05, 2013 - My children could not be more pleased with their experience at Academy at the Lakes. They literally wake up each day looking forward to going to school to see their friends and teachers. I have total confidence that while they are there they are learning how to be a well-rounded child, both socially and academically, and a good citizen of the world. If you are looking for a school that will offer your child individual attention, small classes and a broad range of learning opportunities look no further-- you''ve found it! The access to (and communication with) the teachers and administrators is second to none! I can send my childs teacher and email or text and have a response back typically within an hour or so. Excellent! - Posted by Parent
