Lake Side High School is a complete joke. I attended school there from K-12. By Lake Side, being the only school in Lake Village it does not leave any choices for anyone to send their children elsewhere. The teachers at Lake Side, are not there to help the students succeed in life or prepare them for the future for after high school. I can count on my hand how many good teachers I have ever seen at Lake Side and that is very few. Half of the teachers where coaches teaching subjects they had no clue about and just passed us alone. The teachers that are placed now are teachers of America, who are just there for pay or get experience behind their belt. Teachers at Lake Side High, will rather see a student in an alternative school or suspended rather than work with the parent on how they could work together to help the child. Lake Side just have employees there for the pay not to help the children get a good education. As parents you all need to have a voice, get involved more, stay at the school as much as possible. Something must be done!
I've never seen a more disfunctional educational setting. Lake Village is a small delta town where education is not a priotity for most parents and that translates into a real challenge for any education system. The sad reality is that the school district is not up to the challenge. Teacher morale is at an all time low and getting worse. There is little support for teachers who want the school to succeed and parents either don't care or don't know what to do. Only a handful of parents (less than 20 percent) ever show up for parents meeting. Bottom line...without dynaimic, strong, inovative leadership this school district will continue to lag far behind
The worst school district in Chicot County. No Teachers that care about students. All they do is send children home. Never try to get the parents together to see what can they do together to get any situations under control.
If our children aren't getting the best education then we should take action.Of course it is the teachers' job,but as parents we also have the resposibility to make sure our kids' succeed in life.Actions speak louder than words,and if you haven't started already,highschool's the place to start!-keldron carter
