School Reviews

Lakeside is an amazing school. Their academic program is out of this world. Yes, it is a hard school, but the teachers and administrators are focused on your success. If you face challenges in any area (social, academic, or even at home) Lakeside wants to help you in any way they can. Also, if you are accelerated or still need to be challenged after going here, Lakeside offers different levels of courses and subjects. Our art program is awesome. There are so many options that students have whether it's photography, pottery, paint, drawing, orchestra, chorus, band, A Capella, jazz band, or drama, you can find a way to express yourself. And the best part is, you don't have to choose one! You can change your interests as your Lakeside experience goes on. Also, our athletics are fun! We have some really good sports teams.. We may not win every single championship, but we do win quite a few! We have a wide variety of sports that students can participate in and it helps them learn teamwork, trust, hard work, and is a lot of fun for everyone! One last thing, Lakeside tuition can be hard... But there are SO MANY graduates who have been super successful that have come here on scholarship. Anyway, LAKESIDE IS AN AMAZING SCHOOL!
