I LOVE LAKESIDE I'm an eighth grader here and my teachers are amazing. I used to have average grades (B's some A's) , my teachers this year makes the things we're learning super fun and interesting. I can't wait until i see what happens this year!!!! Mrs. Pilios can make anything you learn interesting in a snap. -student ;D
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 like this school it is one of the greatest places to go for you child even if i am a student in 6th grade going to 7th the lakeside mustangs rock!!!!
Heyy im a student here and i love this school im a seventh going to eighth this year and im sooo excited theres so much fun at this school even though we have ups and downs the teachers try hard to get us through go lakeside mustangs!!! -sharon p.S mr.Sanford mrs.Macman mr.Trimmel mrs.Porter and mr.Carrilo best teachers ever
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.
I am the proud parent of a 8th grade student attending Lakeside middle school. She is currently in the AVID program which has helped her focus on college and the importance of an education. I'm thankfull to the teachers and staff who do their best to help each and every child excell. Thank you!
School and staff are fine examples of integrity and dedication to children. The past 10 years at this school have been the greatest years of my life!
I love Lakeside and I think my teachers are the best. Thanks so much for being such a big part in my life.
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.
