Lakeville Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
Lakeville Elementary School has a caring environment that is nurturing and non competitive. It has a family atmosphere that makes both the parent and student feel comfortable and welcome. It is also very safe and clean. The Principal is a great role model and she projects a positive attitude and a fun loving nature, while at the same time commanding respect. The students feel like they are genuinely cared about and that they come first, which is the way it should be at every school. Camaraderie is encouraged and therefore groups or cliques among the students are not as prevalent as they are at other schools. This is an ideal environment that makes for a happy student. And a happy student equates to happy parents! I know there are other elementary schools in the district with a better reputation and I can say, from experience, that I would choose this school over any other without hesitation!
I feel this is a really good school. I have one child that went to this school from 1st thru 5th grade. Now my second child started in kindergarten and is now in second grade. In the 7 years I have had children in this school I would have to say they have been great. There was one teacher "my oldest child's 2nd grade teacher" I didn't like at all. Parent teacher conferences were awful she treated me like I was not important enough to talk to and rushed me though the meeting. But that teacher is no longer there and all other teachers have been great.
My children attended both Lakeville and Daniel Axford and both schools are terrible. They are not helping the children to become world leaders academically or socially. They have IB which is supposed to honor the creating world leaders philosophy, but the teachers and the principals lack significantly with the approach used in the classroom to teach the students and with the negative atmosphere that exist inside the school walls. Oxford, MI itself is a racist town and the schools help make it even more evident. You cannot create world leaders if the students witness all of the few black kids who attend get treated like they do not belong and are not wanted, but only tolerated because the family lives in the community and they have to allow them to attend the school or if it is an out of district student they tolerate it because the district wants the funds that comes with tolerating the blacks. The atmosphere is racist, wrong and not very healthy for the black " or white students". Bigots are not great world leaders- they are part of the " problem people the world could use less of". Also academically the concept of having the child leave the room to sit with a supposed "specials" teacher if the child has issues with reading is abused at these schools, instead the teacher gets to choose up to 3 students who she feels may get on her nerves in behavior and use the opportunity as a chance to get rid of the child for half an hour a day. Both schools in my opinion have so many ignorant characteristics about them. Nevertheless I did take my kids out of the Oxford Public school system although we still live in Oxford and the new school system they are in is predominantly white as well and they are IB as well and the experience is night and day. We are dealing now with a school system, principal and teachers who are way more professional with regard to how they handle race relations, the overall atmosphere of the schools and it is awesome to see how the IB system can really work if taught in a way that actually helps the students understand how to work with whatever and whomever in a way that a leader should be able to do. Oxford schools really need to get it together because the losers are really the kids and parents who have been bamboozled into thinking they are getting a world class education- but unfortunately not.
Time for changes to occur at this school. A new Principal is needed. Each year the leadership shown by said Principal diminishes. The Middle School and High School Principals possess better leadership skills and lead their schools in a more effective way. The outside of schools is what people see first. Year after year, the outside of Lakeville is cared for less and less. The Middle and High Schools are cared for and maintained. Even other elementary schools in the district are maintained better than Lakeville. Lakeville gives Oxford Schools a bad name. The reading levels at which the different grades read are far below what the children are capable of reading and understanding. The teachers don't let a child read at the level they're capable. Therefore, they are not challenged and fall behind. Instead of putting so much emphasis and focus on being an IB school, try putting more emphasis and focus towards a better quality education for the children. The foundation for an adult being successful and educated starts as early as elementary. Lakeville doesn't set their children up for success and these children are our future.
This a horrible school to attend. The principal is rude. She is unfair in the way she treats her students and even the parents. She also takes little pride in the appearance of her school. She exhibits little leadership skills and she leads six grades (K-5) and hundreds of students. She talks the talk but she doesn't walk the walk. I am happy my children no longer attend Lakeville Elementary.
