Open Quote I'm currently a student at Lakewood High School, the whole Lakewood District is screwed up and corrupted. You absolutely shouldn't even consider sending your child to any of the Lakewood Schools. Look into the private school in Lakewood, Calvery Academy, there strict but your child will learn. It's a private Christian 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.
