Best School District 


Cleveland's cozy neighbor to the west, Lakewood is a bastion of family life, so it's no wonder that residents care a great deal about their schools. There are about 6,000 students at 10 schools and citizens are eager to help them succeed — a bond issue approved two years ago focused on upgrading three elementary schools and finishing construction projects at Lakewood High School. It's a perennial winner for parents and readers and the investments and passion pay off — Lakewood scores highly on the state's annual scorecard. Civic duty is strong here, which makes it one of the region's best suburbs and best places to raise kids.
