The Lakeside School

  • If you are looking for a school that will challenge and inspire your child to reach higher than he or she ever imagined, your search is over.
  • The Lakeside School is, however, more than a challenge and inspiration.
  • It is a remarkable community of teachers, parents, and students from many different races, religions, and creeds learning together in a positive environment that always strives for excellence.
  • For nearly four decades, students at Lakeside have been taught to value inquiry, embrace difference, think critically, act selflessly and to be themselves.
