Lakeville Elementary School Ratings & Reviews
This school is absolutely the worst school in the Oxford School district. They allow their teachers to have several different methods of staying in contact with parents, they do not practice the same methods from one teacher to the other. They allow certain teachers to not give homework all year and then have other teachers do so. Thisbecomes a problem when a student has a teacher that gives no homework all year and then goes into the next year with homework every evening. The school is inconsistent with its techniques. They do not hold staff responsible for judging character and allow staff to be rude, inconsiderate and judge parents characters. Donna Burton, administrator assistant should have been fired years ago. She is consistently rude to parents, passes judgment, is inconsiderate to students and only cares about herself.
Overall I have been very impressed with both the Principal and the teachers. I have found both to be assertive, yet kind. The organization in the school is apparent and I have seen apparent growth in all areas from my child.
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."
