Lakewood City School District:
Providing Quality Education
for the 21st Century
The Lakewood City School District is an award-winning public school district with excellence in academics, the arts, sports and community service, all in a city named "The Best Place to Raise Kids" in Ohio by BusinessWeek.com. Students walk to neighborhood schools and enjoy a wide variety of programming to meet the educational needs of every student that walks through our doors. While academic achievement is a top priority, the district also looks to create opportunity-rich environments that allow our students to explore beyond the classroom walls. Partnerships with local colleges and universities, a Digital Academy, West Shore Career-Technical District, and our Community Recreation and Education Department provide many educational options for students and families.
This is an exciting time for the 5,800 student district: four new elementary schools and two new middle schools are now open, and the western half of Lakewood High School has been totally renovated, completing Phase I and Phase II of a three-phase districtwide building program. We are now a district of seven K-5 elementary schools, two middle schools (6-8 grades), one high school and one alternative school. We eagerly are awaiting word from the state of Ohio on funding so we can complete the final phase of our Facilities Master Plan, which includes rebuilding or renovating two elementary schools and the eastern end of the high school . In short, Lakewood Schools provide the best school facilities and the best technological support for teaching and learning that can be found in our area.
