Open Quote It was the best decision I have ever made to drive from my hometown of Evergreen to attend the IB program at Lakewood High School. The students are diverse and friendly, while the faculty are amazing teachers. Lakewood is excellent preparation for college. I have several friends attending or receiving scholarships from Stanford and others attending prestigious colleges such as Yale. I myself hope to attend Vanderbilt. Lakewood also has a lot of school pride and spirit. I highly recommend this school! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
