9 Parent Reviews for Lakewood Falls Elementary School

I have been a substitute for many Plainfield schools and this one is far and away my favorite .. great kids and cooperative staff. I have heard that the classes are overcrowded, but I have never seen evidence of that. I think that the addition of many new schools in the area lately may have alleviated ...  Read more

New principal, great changes. New spelling & math program in 2007. My kids have thrived, including a child that needed a lot of reading support. Excellent social work and resource staff. Definitely OVERCROWDED. Avg. aruond 31 kids per class in my experience.

The main concern I have for this school is the way that they are now teaching reading. I disagree with the 'memory method' and believe that if this is to be used children should still be taught phoenetically with this as an aid.

My daughter is in kindergarten this year and so far she really likes it. Her teacher is very nice and she really seems to be doing well. I know that there are about 25 kids in her class and that there are 6 kindergarten classes.

I agree w/the Aug 2003 review. Lakewood Falls offers very little to our students. The lack of spelling is terrible. And every day they bring home a different math technique - instead of just learning how to add and subtract. In general, the Plainfield School District is horrible. They are constantly ...  Read more

My children have been enrolled in this school for 3 years now and I only continue to grow to love it all the more. We have had nothing but great teachers. I simply can't say enough about them, as my neighbors can't either. The teachers seem to go above and beyond what their state curriculum is suppose ...  Read more

When we moved to Plainfield they promised us grand schools, what we got was schools that refuse to teach our children. No competition, that it is OK to spell the way it sounds and not correct them because it is close enough, and otherwise might discourage them. Or maybe it's the fact that my son has ...  Read more
