Principals Message – 2017 Fall Semester

Welcome back to school! We eagerly to look forward to educating our students as we begin the 2017-18 Academic Year. We are opening this year with about 3300 students, and nearly 300 staff members to ensure that our students have the best experience both with academics and extra-curricular activities. Our school continues to strive academically and we are very proud of our 11th grade students who posted quality academic scores with some of the higher scores of all the large comprehensive high schools within the Long Beach Unified School District. Our English Language Arts SBAC scores were at 64% of the class who met and exceeded the standard. This is the highest of the large comprehensive high schools. Our Math SBAC scores took a dip to 29%, but we are on the top end of scores among the large comprehensive high schools within the district. This is impressive considering that the class had over 800 students. Even more remarkable is that almost all subgroups that are part of the measured criteria improved. Our Advanced Placement enrollment and overall pass rate continues to increase with students taking over 1,000 exams last spring. About a third of our students now take AP courses. Lastly, we had over 1100 students that made the honor roll at the end of the 2017 Spring Semester. Needless to say, our overall emphasis and achievement on academics is a definite highlight to begin this academic year’s campaign.

 

With a large variety of academic courses, including 23 AP courses, and five Pathways for students to explore career options, there is something for everyone. Our emphasis is on college and careers and we encourage every student to look at their academic opportunity as an investment in their future, and to step out of their comfort zone and take the rigors of the most challenging courses to be “in the hunt” within a very competitive global society. All students are part of one of our five Pathway programs that link classroom instruction to industry standards and “hands-on experiences” to connect students to potential careers. In an effort to give Lakewood students the competitive edge in admissions and placement, we have added an Arduino computer coding lab and a mechanical and robotic engineering lab to complement our state of the art Hospital Simulation Lab, Black Box Theater, Small Animal Care Workshop, and mobile digital media studio to mention a few.

 

At Lakewood High School just about half the student-body is involved in extra-curricular activity. We encourage student involvement and foster these experiences to provide students with life long memories. Please join your child and become involved at our school. There are many opportunities for involvement with our PTSA and the myriad of booster groups on campus.

 

Ultimately, we anticipate students to graduate from Lakewood with the highest level of academic skills, employability skills, character building experiences, great memories, life-long friendships, a strong growth mindset, and a level of confidence that affords them an attitude of, “I can achieve at anything”.

 

Let’s make this year a special one of fun, growth, and accomplishment! Obviously, we want to continue as being the best of the large comprehensive high schools in the LBUSD, this will take each and every student to make the necessary commitment, dedication, and sacrifices to excel at their individual optimal levels that will ultimately lead to success.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the many school activities and events, and on behalf of the Lakewood High School Staff, thank you in advance for your support of our school and your child.

 

And remember, to “keep it good in the Wood”.

Mario A. Jimenez, Co-Principal Shawn Abbate, Co-Principal

Hard work vs. talent Ever hear your teen say, "He's so smart, math is easy for him," or "She's lucky she's good at lacrosse"? Help your high schooler see that talent is only one piece of the puzzle-it's hard work that makes people soar. Encourage them to put in the time and effort to reach their own goals.
