    I am beginning to question my choice of Lakeshore for my child. We moved to this district over the summer and heard excellent things about it and it was a key point in our relocation. So far I have a teacher who has no idea what ADHD is no special classes for ADHD a complete lack of communication I've reported bullies three times and today my child was allowed to be a car rider despite the fact that he is a bus rider. When I asked how that happens I was simply told "I don't know". Apparently they will let a 7 yr old dictate his/her own form of transportation without consulting a parent. Now I am looking into different schools.

    Lakeshore has everything we wanted for our child. As everyone knows the most important factor in the success of a school is the parental involvement. Based on the people who live in this district it is an unbelievable school with great parents involved in their children's lives. With that being said the staff and teachers are also wonderful and treat our child with respect and integrity and impart great knowledge and wisdom on them. If I had to choose any school in the world to send our child it would be Lakeshore Elementary. I have no doubt that our child is getting the best foundation possible to move on to the next level.

    Last school year we had 2 children at LES one in the AIG (Academically and Intellectually Gifted) program. My wife and I are very pleased. The principal is beginning her second year and brings many years of outstanding academic experience. Any effective school is not only about the students teachers and administration; but parents engaged in the education of their children. LES is well-rounded and will continue to exceed.

    I think this school is fantastic. My children are A honor role students and participate in the sports programs offered as well. The teachers are caring and the staff is personable and supportive. We feel very blessed to have moved to this school district!

    I think this school is headed in the wrong direction now that there is a new principal. We pulled our child out this year. This school DOES NOT have a literacy program at all very few teachers do some writing with the students.They also totally teach to the test. (EOG's and benchmark testing) I am starting to see a huge trend now in private schooling and home schooling. It seems just about every private school within a 30 mile radius is completely full with a huge waiting list.

    Lakeshore Schools are the best my children have ever had the priveledge of attending. I am disappointed to have to move away and take them out. The academic program is a notch above the rest and the staff is the best in the profession. The school includes parents in everything imaginable and it has been an honor to say my children were given such a quality of education that most never receive.
