why lakewood?

why Lakewood Elementary?

We are a Title 1, Community School, with a Spanish Immersion program!

"Community Schools embody how education should function in a healthy democracy – they’re public schools that provide services and support which fit each neighborhood’s needs, created and run by the people who know our children best – families, educators, community organizations, local governments, and the students themselves – all working together."

Durham is the most ethnically diverse of North Carolina's major metropolitan communities and Lakewood Elementary celebrates a diverse student body representative of our community. Our community is invested in keeping our diversity strong, and in creating an exceptional learning environment for our students, and an exceptional teaching environment for our teachers. 

Visit the National Education Association for more information about what makes Community Schools special.
