Welcome Message from the Principal: R.O.A.R.ing to Achieve

Dear Lion Pride Community,


Welcome to Lakeview Elementary School, home of the Lions where students R.O.A.R. (Respectful Organized Accountable Responsible) to achieve. Lakeview is a California Distinguished school where the world’s greatest teachers and happiest students grow together.


I wholeheartedly believe that when our community works together, our children will be the ones to benefit. Today's society requires competent collaborators who can think critically and solve problems. As we exemplify positivity towards academic, social and emotional challenges, we model for our children how to be critical thinkers, problem-solvers, and resilient life-long learners; we are equipping our children to be successful.


Research shows that the most important factor in helping students learn (other than themselves) are the teachers. I am proud to say that we have fabulous teachers who are trained in various strategies (Differentiation, Assessment, AVID, PBIS, GATE, etc.) and have passionate and truly caring hearts for our students. We appreciate your support in entrusting your children to us!


Dr. Suena Chang.
