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.

  • For nearly four decades, students at Lakeside have been taught to value inquiry, embrace difference, think critically, act selflessly and to be themselves.
