    Lakeside is one of the only schools with a safe atmosphere for children in our city. You of course have your 'clicks' but it's much worse at other schools. I recently moved my daughter to Lakeside and couldn't be more pleased. She herself is also happy with the school. It will take a lot of hard work as the school she came from isn't much on academics but she will do fine!

    My daughter has attended Lakeside throughout her education. I have been nothing but pleased. Whenever I have had any problems either with curriculum or discipline the teachers and the administrative staff have made me feel welcome to come and discuss the problem with them. I have always felt that the solution has been more than fair. My daughter is on the dance team as well as involved in other activities. I have heard rumors that this would not be easy as I am a single mother but I do not feel we have been treated any differently than if we would have been a two parent family of means. I love Lakeside School.

    Lakeside is a very wonderful school the education offered is amazing and the sports program is filled with great kids. Although the coaches tend to only play the rich and popular children... if you move to this school and want your child to play sports get on the school board and live in a big house!

    Instead of focusing on the education of its students Lakeside used the money to buy a baseball field and a new band room. The money could have bought new textbooks and learning supplies.
