10 Parent Reviews for Lakewood Elementary School

We have been very pleased with Lakewood school. I find it to be a secret little gem within the big AAPS system. Tucked behind the darling Lakewood neighborhood, it is a classic midcentury elementary school building with 2 large playgrounds and a nature area with trails. The teachers have been kind, ...  Read more

Lakewood has a new principal beginning fall 2010. I have found him to be dismissive of my (and other parents) concerns. He is young (29) and has a lot of enthusiusm and "awards" for teaching, etc.. but he is not able to translate his talents to working with adults. I have loved being a parent of ...  Read more

I've had three children go through Lakewood and I could not have been more pleased. I've witnessed first-hand the extra hours and effort by teachers and staff, the great majority of whom obviously enjoy their jobs. The school's best offering is its teachers. Most of them were hand-picked when ...  Read more

As a parent, I am struck by how well each child receives individual attention at Lakewood. To start with, each child is greeted in the morning as they walk to class by at least 3 different staff members. During lunch hour, students again receive individual attention from lunch helpers. This is also ...  Read more

Lakewood Elementary boasts and is proud that 80% of its students read at the target goal. I think this is a poor result 1 out 5 students do not read at a target level.

I have two children at Lakewood and they both love going to school. The parent,teacher and staff involvement is extremly high. Lakewood is a small school just about 200 children (grades k-5) and most of the teachers and staff know all the children by name. The teachers are well educated and very involved ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Lakewood Elementary School
Ann Arbor Public Schools
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
