Lakeshore is a great school. It has an active parent body and lots enrichment opportunities for the kids. It's one of the larger elementary schools in SFUSD, but somehow manages to maintain a small community feel. The new principal has provided excellent leadership.

The new principal has brought a great breath of fresh air to the school. Safety is a priority. The very involved parents help with fundraising, classroom help, yard supervision, motor perception, gardening, kickball coaching, etc. Lake Merced, just across the street, is a great resource for regular field trips. Library is extensive. Community-building events happen regularly (math night, literacy night, read-a-thon, multicultural potluck, welcome to kindergarten night) Poetry consultant compiles a book of kids' work each year. Teachers can also choose from a pool of professionals to bring movement & music, cooking, dance, and theatre into the classroom. On top of all of these enrichments, the test scores are great.

Overall Lakeshore has an excellent, dedicated teaching staff. A very involved parent base. Wonderful extras, such as art and poetry. Its academics are not always strong enough, however. The class size increase from 20-33/34 students after third grade is too large and there is no paraprofessional in the classroom to aid the teacher with these large classes. Lakeshore is very caring and warm community. It is very diverse and open.

My daughter attended Lakeshore from K through 5th grade a few years ago. She went on to a small private middle school that has a rigorous academic program. My daughter was well prepared for this middle school both academically and socially thanks to Lakeshore. She continues to consider the friends she made at Lakeshore 'life-long' even though they all went to different schools. She and many other Lakeshore alums return to the annual Spring fundraising event year after year to see their old school, teachers, and friends again. I especially liked the diversity (ethnic,cultural, and economic) that I found at Lakeshore which truly reflects that of San Francisco. If I were looking for elementary schools (instead of high schools!)I would definitely choose Lakeshore again.

My younger child just graduated from Lakeshore, and overall it was a wonderful experience for both my kids. We went through a major transition with a new principal and a wave of teacher retirements and replacements. My older experienced the 'old guard' and my younger the new wave. Both got a solid education and came out well prepared for middle school and beyond.

Very liberal school. Not much focus on discipline, or order. Children seem to enjoy learning experience. Very geared tward nature and respecting the earth. Children have fun, teacher have a lot of freedom.

Lakeshore has many wonderful teachers and students. Unfortunaetly, the principal is not providing quality leadership.

Lakeshore has an extremely active PTA that works hard to minimize the effects of budget cuts on our programs. We have art, dance, drama, music, architecture, library, p.e., and a sensory motor program for our children. We are proud of our Rigby reading program and are working on funding sources for implementing the Making Math Real and Lindamood Bell programs (in addition to district mandated curriculum). Our special education programs are first rate. Lakeshore has both an Inclusion program and a Resource Program. Our Resource Specialist and Speech Therapist have many years of experience and present a working model that the district should strive for at every school. Our teachers, parents and principal work together--both behind the scenes and at many, many fun family events. Other sources of pride: Lake Merced (our outdoor classroom), our gardening program (transforming our grounds) and TRIBES--teaching our diverse community a respectful method of communication.

great arts, drama programs.

Lakeshore is a great school for parents wanting the feel of a private school without the private school fees. Parents are highly involved in school and classroom activities and do a great job planning special and unique events. There does appear to be some prejudice and bias of African American students and families, but I believe this is true for the SFUSD as a whole. The principal is caring and tough when needed.

We have two kids at Lakeshore and we have been really happy with the school. The teachers we have had have been great and there are a lot of involved parents. There are also great arts and accademic programs offered -- chorus, dance, theatre, visual arts, poetry, as well as afterschool chess and spanish.

Lakeshore is a great school and a great community. We are very glad our kids go there. The teachers are very professional and really like what they do. There is a strong and active parent group (PTA and others), that provides the resources for a great 'consultants' program--dance, drama, poetry, gardening, architecture, etc. The reading program is also very strong. We are very pleased with the friendships our kids have made through the school. Generally it is a safe, nuturing and friendly environment for the kids, even though it is big for an elementary school. Lakeshore is a very diverse place, which we see as another big plus. Main negative is that it really requires parent participation to make the place really work. But then, we can't think of a better way to invest our energy and resources than in our kids' development.

Lakeshore has an outstanding group of committed teachers and parents who work together to create and maintain a positive learning environment. A sense of community is emphasized for all children who come from many districts in the city. An outstanding library and special programs including poetry and motor perception help maximize each child's learning potential. Enrichment programs are available to each class, including dance, science, drama, and studio arts. Lakeshore parents contribute time and effort to raise funds (PTA) to provide students with these extras. A wonderful group of teachers put in many extra hours to provide their students with a strong, balanced curriculum. Special events include family math and literacy nights, a multi-cultural potluck, and the science fair among others.

Lakeshore is in transition from 25+ years of a top principal & teachers to a new generation of leadership. But overall it's still an excellent school. Good prep for Middle School Honors programs, good teachers, art & poetry, outstanding parent community and involvement. Negative: a few undisciplned students make the top yard tougher than it should be.

I have two children here. It is one of the best schools in the city. It's diverse, academically challenging, incredibly great teachers, as well as many wonderful consultants in science, art, architecture, poetry, drama and dance. We have a highly active PTA, who fund the consultants and have other programs, like Math night, the Science Fair, Halloween fun, Multi-cultural night, and others. Parents have started a wonderful gardening program as well. I can't rate this school highly enough.

Wonderful elementary school! I highly recommend this school to any future parent researching SF schools. Lots of parent involvement - everyone seems to know each other; real friendly & supportive staff. Principal Lee is warm, kind & truly cares. I like how they separate the kindergarten yard from the older children. Lots of nature trips to Lake Merced. Field trips are great, artistic & creative! Academically the children are truly challenged. However, the school needs more adults on the yard during recess & breaks.

Summer program 1

About the program
  • Each program has an academic, enrichment and physical activity component. The programs are based on a youth development model and include project based learning activities. The summer programs are operated by community based organizations that are contracted by SFUSD to provide the services based on grants to the school from California Department of Education. Each organization has a site specific enrollment process. Priority enrollment goes to the students from the school site. Students from other SFUSD schools are eligible to apply though in many of the elementary schools there is more demand than available slots. Funding changes year to year and program offerings change.
