A diverse and loving community! A gem of the San Francisco school district.
Lakeshore Alternative Elementary provide excellence academic programs, my daughter loves the Yoga, motor skills, library days....etc and many other activities. This a a great school.
My daughter is the second generation of my family to attend school at Lakeshore. She loves Lakeshore as much as I did when I was a student there. The same excellent academic enrichment programs that were there 25 years ago are still going strong with many new programs.
Lakeshore Alternative Elementary School has great academic programs and teachers, plus an amazing collection of enrichments made possible by the staff and the PTA and parents. The gardening program, drama/music/vocals, poetry, motor skills, librarians among other activities plus lots of cultural diversity. A great, well rounded school!
I love teaching at Lakeshore. The rich diversityof the community make it special. Lakeshore maintains its focus on high expectations, the arts, mindfulness, and community building, which all make it a very special place. I feel lucky to have found Lakeshore to be my 2nd home.
Wonderful programs (art,poetry,gardening, motor perception) and excellent teachers.
Great community and teachers with fantastic extra programs. Ms. Keener makes it happen.
Lakeshore provides a great community environment, where parents and teachers truly work together to promote core academic achievement as well as a wide variety of enrichment activities from gardening to taiko drumming. The school emphasizes respect, and really walks this talk, welcoming all of its families to contribute to their children's education however they can, regardless of backgrounds, financial position, or ability to volunteer a lot. Lindsay Keener does a fantastic job balancing the logistics, the learning, and the fun at Lakeshore.
A big school that is filled with adults who seem to really see the individual kids, and reach out to address their needs. We've been here less than two years yet it seems like everyone knows my kids. And likes them!
Lakeshore has an active and supportive parent community, great teachers and office support. The programs like studio art, acting, music and garden are 'icing on the cake.'
Lakeshore comes through with strategies for each and every child who attends. There are opportunities every day for successes and growth.
Lakeshore Elementary is a must see school. We have a great diverse community of kids, parents, teachers, and staff. Many of our teachers picked this school for their children to attend.
Teachers at Lakeshore go above and beyond. They value education over test scores.
Lakeshore is a very special place. The whole school community works together to provided a top notch program for our students.
The school has given my children much more than an education, they have given them a second family.
Lakeshore is my elementary school, and it's the best school i've ever seen. Clean, good students, good learning. Absolutely no complaints. And the teachers are great!!!! My favorite teacher was Mr.Rich. Keep going!
My daughter has had a wonderful experience over the years at Lakeshore. Though I'd started to sense that teachers were getting tired and frustrated several years ago, the new principal has done a great job. We are sad that our time here will end after this year. The consultant programs (arts, motor perception, PE, gardening) are all outstanding as are the vast majority of the teachers who go well beyond what you'd expect for their students. Great school!
Lakeshore has really become a great school again. The new principal is providing excellent leadership. There is a wonderful garden program that all the students learn from, and my child loves. There is a wonderful community here.
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.
