As a four-year Lakewood alum who attended from 94-98 i can tell you it was a fabulous school and though it seems i may be far removed I know there are a number of teachers still around from when I went there; there is tons of dedication.

Although I moved on to magnet schools in the 4th grade lakewood was an incredible experience and i think it was formative for me in a great way. For those of you saying Lakewood is all white and upper middle class or resembles a "Another Brick in the Wall" mentality I think you are way off. But then again when I was there I rode the bus home with my friends who lived in the Townpark Projects in East Dallas (torn down in the last ten years) and hung out with them until my parents would pick me up for dinner. Now THATS higher level learning for a kid whose parents are 'too involved.'

I believe the student with AIDS Lakewooder is referring to is Matt Allen who was in 6th grade when i was in kindergarten I think. Well one of my earliest memories is also one that still resonates with incredible power, now. The ceremony for Matt was one of the most stirring things I've ever experienced, and I wasn't even fully sure of what was going on; but it shows you what is so amazing about Lakewood which is how close-knit of a neighborhood it is, and how much individual care and attention the students get. Please don't count Lakewood out, and if you any questions please feel free to ask me and I'll do my best to help!

By the way the store was awesome, I miss that...and my self-manager badge which I actually still have. Oh I could tell Lakewood stories for days.
