The teachers are probably the best because the test scores are low and there are barely any electives and something makes the students careless. There is also not the best peer environment as well

The phone number on this home page for Lakeside Middle School is not correct. It should be (562) 868-9422. I reported this over a year ago. Thank you :)

This was the worst school any of my children have ever attended. Whe nI asked for daily reports to make sure my son was completing all of his assignments at school and turning in all of his homewrok, the teachers stated that they would check and sign his planner everyday. That happened whenever the teachers felt like signing it - unacceptable when I'm trying to work with you to help my child succeed in your class. Secondly, the level of racism at this school was unreal for such young kids. I have no idea what is being taught in the home, but when a child is being racist, inlcuding making derogatory remarks and hitting a child, they should be expelled from school not just talked to. This school was a horrible experience for my child - I had to pull him out after 1 semester.

I have a daughter who is in 7th grade and has completely excelled at Lakeside she was on Beacon all of 6th grade and now Lantern all of 7th grade. The teachers and staff are very involved and I love the email system. Those parents who have negative things to say about the school should probably take the time to be more involved with what is going on with their students themselves I have yet to have any communication problems with anyone at Lakeside. It is truly an exemplary school and proud to have an 8th grader and a 6th grader this next coming school year. I am confident that the communication will still be there and that Lakeside will continue to excel. Charna C.

As a parent of an 8th grader, I have seen the school go from good to bad. The Gap program helped me keep track of my childs missing work, and now the principal cancelled the program, I have a hard time helping my child. My son complains that some classes are so out of control that he can't wait for the day to be over. I'm sad to see this once great school decline so quickly.

The only way you can honestly review a school and the principal is by being involved yourself in your child and education of your child. I am a very proud parent of a Lakeside 7th grader she was on beacon society the entire year of 6th grade she continues to excel now and i believe this is the teamwork of the staff, teachers and her parents. I love the school. The staff is very involved and it is always nice to be greeted by the staff when I come into the office and they already know who my child is! As the other parent mentioned with 850 students I find it amazing that the staff is able to be that involved to know the students and match them with their parents! Great school and would recommend to anyone!!

Obviously the person who wrote about the discipline has never worked around 850 children. As a very active volunteer, I can see the value of holding the children responsible for their actions. Lakeside has good test scores, no gang issues, no dress code problems, no grafitti, and very little fighting. Lakeside also has 0 pregnancy, and no truancy issues. This is not the issue at the middle schools around us. If the parent below spent more time on campus to appreciate the campus atmosphere and less time excusing bad behavior then they could appreciate how lucky Lakeside is to have a good discipline program.

Well I had a son who went to the school and he really like it. He said the classes werent't to hard but they still challenged him. He loved the band and Mr.Pike. He said the teachers were all so nice and helpful. Overall it is a really good school.

I am the proud parent of a student attending Lakeside middle school. I was very weary about my daughter going to Jr. High especially coming from a different school district. The attention that was given to her personally as well as academically have been better than I and my daughter had expected. She is currently in the AVID program has helped her tremendously. She is a quiet single child and the program has helped her academically and also helped her express herself vocally. I am truely thankfull to hard the staff and teachers who do their best to help each and every child excell. Thank you!

The principal treats the school like her personal soriety. The school was in the IIUPSP and she was supposed to go around to the classroom every day. She never does that. She allows movies to be shown. She even allowed one teacher to show Grease and my students were acting out the inneundo at home.
