Teaching & Learning

Our Curriculum

Our curriculum is broad, balanced, and aligned with Ohio’s Revised Learning Standards. There is a clear progression of knowledge and skills that is also flexible and responsive to individual student needs and interests. 

Our focus is on student growth, mastery of material, and achievement.  When students do not understand, teachers find different ways to deliver the material.  For students who need additional help, we provide various intervention programs that support students from elementary school to high school. In addition, we have instructional coaches who work with teachers to provide ongoing support and professional development.   

As part of the student experience, our teachers provide students with rich first-hand purposeful experiences. The students at all levels use the Design Cycle to ask questions, research, create plans, study results, and come up with new questions.

Lakewood High School and Middle School students are 1:1, meaning each student has a Chromebook for use at school and home during the school year. Students and teachers use the Chromebook as a learning tool.

AP courses are offered at Lakewood High School. The courses currently include Language and Composition, Computer Science, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, U.S. History, and U.S. Government.

Honors classes are offered in Math (6-8), Algebra (Grade 8), Geometry (Grade 9), Calculus, English Language Arts (Grades 6-10), U.S. History, World History, and Biology. We also offer Superior Cognition Pull-out (Grade 3-5) and a self-contained English Language Arts class for students who are gifted in Reading at grades 4-5.

Lakewood Local offers College Credit Plus (CCP) courses at the high school. The offerings include various English courses, Speech, and Database Applications.  Students are able to go off-campus to take college courses at surrounding colleges and universities.
