Karen is right, Lakewood has plenty of nice areas. Keep in mind the city of Lakewood does not have it's own school district. The city is divided into three districts; Long Beach Unified, Bellflower Unified And ABC school district.
Make sure find to find out what district you child's school will be in, as each district may have it's own set of rules and policies.
Best of luck to you.

There are many wonderful areas of Lakewood, and a lot depends on what schools you'd like them to attend. There is a website greatschools.com that rates the schools, and then you can find the school area boundaries there. Best of luck in your search. Let me know if I can be of assistance.
