School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
Lakewood High School Vision: "Success for All."
The mission of Lakewood High School is to prepare every student for college and career success through a rigorous academic and technical pathway of study which provides opportunities to utilize technology, gain work-based learning experience, and grow in a safe, positive, and enriching environment that encourages leadership, responsibility, respect, and integrity.
Our WASC goals are listed below:
1. Lakewood will establish a relationship-centered school culture to address the personal, social, emotional and academic needs of all students and close the achievement gap by creating a supportive, safe, and caring climate to increase the student CORE survey results 5% in the areas of sense of belonging, climate of academic support, and self-efficacy.
2. Increase student literacy and math proficiency through consistent high-quality instruction designed to be engaging, rigorous, standards-based, and differentiated to meet student Pathway interests and academic needs.
3. Develop and implement schoolwide systems for early identification and interventions for struggling students to decrease average schoolwide D/F rates to 15%, increase A-G completion rates by 3 %, and reduce chronic absenteeism by 2%.
We monitor progress by holding monthly intervention meetings by Department and Pathway and weekly Administrative Instructional support meetings. We also review student achievement with our Instructional Leadership Team and Administrative Support staff.
At Lakewood we offer a variety of academic courses, including Accelerated, Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors classes. AVID classes and extensive tutoring opportunities for students who are struggling are also available. Lakewood High School is comprised of smaller groups of students, teachers, and counselors called Pathways.
