This school is somewhat okay, but the teachers here are "misinformed" For example, the honors geometry teacher barely teaches, if you can even call her style "Teaching" The music teacher is really bad at violin, and gives out multiple instances of misinformation. The science here is great, lots of experiments as well as hands on experiences. History and English are grouped together, there are two different pairs. Overall, most teachers just either give bad info, or show their kids a video, or just don't do anything and let the kids goof off. (Obviously my English isn't really good as I just used three conjunctions in the same sentence)
Lakeside is the worst middle school in all of California, the principal is very rude and said "you will be one of those people living on the streets one day." She fell one day in the office and broke her hip because she's so fat. She called the cops on me while I was walking home one day, since its in between my high school and my house. I was on the outside of campus and she called the cops. The only things I liked about lakeside were a few teachers. But one of my teachers I hated.
Lakeside was a great school when I went there but now I believe its not the best place to send your kid its lost its Music teacher which was the greatest teacher i ever had and has lost its best math teacher it has also lost its art and gym teacher that was loved by all the students some of the kids are jerks and all it has left is 2 history teachers and 1 language arts teacher that are truly exceptional in my eyes as of 2012 lakeside is not a school i would send my child to.
I don't like lakeside.they treat my kid unfairly and everybody against us.i hope they treat people equally.
I dislike this school. Teachers seem to pick on me and the students are quite horrendous. They are mean and rude and some do drugs. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO THIS SCHOOL.
I love this school. Its my last year here at Lakeside. I went to Lakeside from 07-09 and I'm very proud of Lakeside. All the teachers strive for us students to do the best we can do and we do! Our schools is the best school we are really good at History Day and the Pentalon!
I love lakeside. I'm in seventh grade but i am taking eighth grade math. The teachers are the best and really supportive.
We are so pleased with Lakeside, They look at every student as an individual. Teachers care about each students success. Our daughter has never been happier. Thank you Lakeside.
It's a really good and an awsome school. It leads kids to sucess.....
Fabulous teachers! Language Arts department can't be beat, greatest in IUSD.
My daughter has had a good expeience for the 7th and now in the 8th grade. Some of the teachers(math) stay after school to help with the homework daily. Quite of few after school opportunies onsite for the kids to get involved in.
Great school. My child was challenged academically till the last day of school.
great program. really like it for my son. strong academic program. could be a little more ethnically diverse.
Lakeside's focus on getting kids through their 'awkward' age is phenomenal. This is a fantastic school for the development of young teens. We thought the teachers were great, they really seemed to be team players and seemed truly interested in the kids feeling ok about themselves. They are tough academically but good training for high school.
My daughter is doing very well in this wonderful school. All the teachers she has so far are excellent. The learning environment is great for all the students. Lakeside does not have any programs for GATE students, but I do wish they could provide something extra for GATE students to nourish the special talents of these students.
