In 2010, Lakewood High School was put on a list of Florida’s most struggling schools, after five D state ratings in a row and poor test score data. However, by 2013, under Bob Vicari’s leadership and for the first time, Lakewood received an A rating, a move from the lowest 5% in the state to the top 25%. Bob also mentors students as a part of Florida’s Take Stock in Children, a mentoring program.
