Lakewood School District is located in the state of Washington, about fifteen miles north of Everett. The District encompasses twenty-three square miles of rural/suburban countryside nestled between the Cascade Mountains and Puget Sound, and is surrounded by farmland and seven lakes. Our District is comprised of five school sites and several support facilities.
The total enrollment for the District is approximately 2,300 students. We employ approximately 150 certificated staff and 160 classified staff. With a population of about 8,700, Lakewood retains the closeness of a small country community, yet has ready access to the larger metropolitan areas of Seattle and Everett.
In addition to a strong basic educational core curriculum that correlates well with the State"s Essential Academic Learning Requirements, Lakewood schools offer a variety of unique educational programs that provide for the specific needs of ALL students. The District strives to ensure that the best educational environment is provided for each student to reach his/her potential academically, physically, socially, and emotionally. Some of these are:
Enrichment and Challenge Programs
Advanced Placement Courses (College Level)
Co-curricular activities are also a valued tradition in the district. A wide variety of activities are offered to students in grades 7-12. At the high school level, as a member of the North Cascade Conference, activities include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, soccer, softball, tennis, track, volleyball, and wrestling. In addition to athletics, high school students are able to participate in such diverse activities as drama, band, choir, Chess Club, Honor Society, Hi-Q, FFA and Business Leaders of America.
The District is proud of its continued efforts to improve and expand our computer labs. All grade levels include computer learning as an integral part of the curriculum. We are also proud of our dedicated parent groups.
