    I absolutely love Lakeview! My daughter has been attending Kindergarten here and we both are so pleased with her teacher and principal. I like how they pride themselves on academics but without taking out all the fun. They have lots of fun activities at the school as well as programs to get your child involved. The homework isn't too hard but just the right amount to challenge my child. Her teacher is loving yet is stern enough with the kids to where she has the classroom under control. I highly recommend this school!

The Field Trips And Fall FestivalAre Always Top Notch. ) I Went To Lakeview As A Child And Never Thought Any Other School Would Be Good Enough For My Children. Go Roadrunners.

    This is the best elementary school in Lakeside!!! They have alot of activities for the families as well as the individual children. There teachers build a relationship with the students. They Principal sends weekly voice mail messages to let you know what is going on. I think the only improvement that could be made should be by the PTA. Which is the parent involvement.

    Lakeview Elementary School provides the finest educational opportunities available. My child has access to cutting edge technology in a very innovative and engaging multi-age technology class. This class has helped him to become excited about learning! In addition he is learning Spanish in the afternoons two days a week not to mention an hour of piano lessons weekly. The Principal is very friendly and greets all students with a smile! It seems as if she knows the names of all of the students.

    My son has attended Lakeview since his Kindergarten year and is in the 2nd grade this year. I agree with the other parents who have commented about the office staff. They definitely could be MUCH friendlier than they are to parents I've witnessed them being pretty shockingly condescending the times I have been in the office with my Son over the years. With that said - The Principal and the Teachers are OUTSTANDING!! Every teacher my son has had thus far has been nothing short of incredible. They have all been extraordinarily patient supportive & work very closely with the parents. I love the way the Principal stands in front of the school every morning and every afternoon waving to all the cars coming in & going out. Whether it's a hot day w/ temps in the triple digits or if it's freezing & poring rain - She is still out there waving hello and goodbye with a great big smile. She does Lakeview Elementary proud and we are lucky to have her! The PTA is extremely friendly and very informative. I'm very happy that my son is a Lakeview Road Runner and am overjoyed that his baby sister will be joining him next year as she starts her first year as a Lakeview Kindergartner!

    My granddaughter attends this school. Office staff could be friendlier to parents. It seems they think they are speaking to children all the time instead of adults. Principal and both of the teachers I've met are very good with the children and parents. The teacher my granddaughter has this year is really good.

    Great school! Fantastic teachers and support staff and the Principal is wonderful! I have seen so many parents involved in the school and their support makes the school so much better. Everything I have heard about this school turned out to be true.

    Its funny to me that the only bad comment was about discipline and apperance of children. I don't beieve its the teachers job to raise your child it is to teach your child with out passing judgement on a kid. If you want your child in uniform and all looking the same the pay for private school I am more worried about my childs education then their clothes. The test scores alone show that education is #1 here. I would totally recommend this school to anyone out there!!!

    My son started this school in 4th grade Special Ed. I LOVE this school & his teacher Mr. DiBernardo is the absolute best. He is amazing and has taught my son so much. I am sad that my son will be moving on to middle school next year but value the time he was able to spend at Lakeview.

    Lakeview Elementary is a absolutely fantastic school. My son is finishing up his final week of Kindergarten and I cannot believe how much he learned since September. He is reading at first and second-grade level readers is writing paragraph stories on his own and is able to complete second-grade level math problems. His skills in science and geography are equally impressive. I volunteer in his classroom twice a week and am very impressed by ALL of his classmates' progress this year. All five Kindergarten teachers are motivated share their ideas with one another and generally demonstrate a 'team' approach while teaching their classes. The administration and staff similarly work as a 'team' with our parents. The PTA has helped purchase beautiful landscaping computers for the classrooms an Art Docent program and is currently working on building a shade structure to cover its outdoor amphitheatre. I can't wait for next year!

    This is a great school. Core leadership and the teaching staff can't be beat. I am proud to have my daughter attending and will add my son to the kindergarten class this fall. The parent participation and Art Docent program are amazing and add to make this a high ranking school. The grounds are also beautiful with all the new trees that were planted last year.

    Lakeview Elementaty school is an amazing school. The principal staff parents and students make this school a safe caring and cutting edge school. Lakeview has great test scores but they have not given up the arts and sciences to do so. Lakeview has an art docent program and each grade level gives a performance throughout the year. Each Lakeview classroom has five online computers that students may use to differentiate the classroom. From the moment you step on campus you are greeted by a kind and caring office staff. They will always stop what they are doing to help you. The principal has an open door policy and will always to listen to comments and suggestions. Each grade level has excellent teachers so students will get an amazing education in each grade and the parents are very involved and help out wherever they are needed. Lakeview is the best school ever.

    My son attended Kindergarten at this school and the first week of 1st grade. I was a room mom and was saddened at the lack of parent participation. The school does not have a meet the teacher program. They do not consider discipline a high priority. School dress policy is extremely lacking and if your child happens to have a mohawk in Kindergarten or 1st - grade no problem. I don't fault the entire staff - but they have some serious issues to be addressed. The school system in California as a whole seems to be collapsing.

    I attended Lakeview as a child and now my children attend this school. Overall as a concerned parent I strongly believe this is a great school. The teachers are GREAT and so is the preincipal. I do admit however that their safety patrol system needs to be supervised from time to time but that doesn't deter Lakeview school from being an outstanding school!

    Lakeview has been our school of choice since kindergarden. My daughter is now in 2nd grade. We love the school so much that at one point we have driven 20+minutes just so she could attend. I love how volunteering is encouraged. Even more my daughter loves that I am so involved in her classroom. And eventually her classmates do as well. There is nothing like a hug from a toothless kid to get your day off with a smile! The entire staff at lakeview is always ready to help you if you should need there assistance. For example if you forgot that it was early release; you would get a pleasant but embarassing call to 'Please come get your child.' Thank you for the phone calls office staff. Keep the test score high and run on Roadruners! We're #1 !

    Lakeview is a wonderful school. The relationships between the teachers staff and parents reflect in the students test scores and determination to excel. Both of my children have benefited from attending Lakeview.

    I have had nothing but good experiences at this school. The teachers are caring and respectful of each child's needs or expectations. There is a community feeling with the whole school environment. I would happily recommend this elementary school to anyone.

    My son started here in first grade. The principal is great as well as the entire staff. This school has an awesome PTA with lots of paent participation. At the end of the year my sons reading and math were above average for his grade.

    Both of my childred attended this elementary school and we were very happy with the school. The teachers were excellent and the commumication between school and the parents was outstanding. The arts are very important in the Lakeside school district which is important to our family as well. The school has a small town atmosphere about it as well. We did not feel like our children were at all 'lost within the system' at Lakeview Elementary. Mr. Skeels was principal at the time and he was Lakeview's greatest asset!
