Location and History Lakeview Elementary holds on to its roots as a country school, although the city of Neenah has continued to encroach around its acres of playground that are shared with deer and other wildlife. It is one of the larger elementary schools in the district, drawing from rural families, new subdivisions and apartment complexes. The original Town of Neenah Lakeview School was established in 1856 with 13 pupils attending. The current building was constructed in five phases, ranging from 1858-1968. The school was closed due to low enrollment in 1983 and reopened in 1988, an experience that has bonded parents and staff in a distinctive way.
