Lakewood High School exists for only one purpose: To prepare our students for life after high school so they can succeed to the maximum of their abilities in whatever their chosen profession may be. This beautiful facility, our entire staff (administrators, teachers, and support staff), and all of the infrastructure (computers, books, busses, audiovisual technology and a myriad of other equipment) are all dedicated to just one purpose&.to help our students succeed. This goal however definitely falls in the easier said than done category. While success has never been easy, in todays environment the challenges are even greater. Our students must compete with others from around the world in a global economy where there are far more highly qualified students than there are excellent jobs.
