Lakewood Local School District is a Pre-K through 12th grade district supporting over 1,800 students in five schools – Lakewood Preschool, Lakewood Elementary School, Jackson Intermediate School, Lakewood Middle School, and Lakewood High School. For more information on our schools, please visit Our Schools.

Our philosophy on education is student centered, focusing on how our educational practices support student success beyond their time in our buildings. And we value the way our community works with us to drive student learning and achievement. Our focus is evident in our mission statement:

"We are a community of learners inspiring each student to explore, grow, and achieve.”

To learn more, please visit our Vision, Mission & Values page.

We value Academics, Arts and Athletics. Our purpose is to educate and care for the whole student. We aim to graduate our students to a post-high school experience that is fruitful and positive, whether that is a 2 or 4-year degree program, apprenticeship, work placement or military service. Our goal will always be for students to leave our schools ready for career and college.

We work to develop the whole child by teaching and nurturing students through our Leaders and Learners program at all grade levels. Students are taught from a very young age to collaborate, be curious, be creative, critically think, communicate, commit and show good character. These are skills that are critical for success in school, the work force and community.
