If I could have rated this school less, I would have. Lakeside's principals have expelled students from the school because they told the principals that the teachers weren't doing their jobs, or something as simple as their skin color.

Lakeside is by far the best school I have ever heard about or seen!! Everyone, from the administrator and principal, to the sweet teachers, to Mrs Burkholz, who does everything, they are all SO sweet and caring. They truly do adopt you when you join. I have never been so loved, and spiritually, and educationally nurtured! They push you academically, so that you achieve things you never thought you could. And they put you ahead where you're strong, and hold you back where you're weak until you catch up. They also have amazing scholarships, so almost everyone can offord lakeside! Joining Lakeside is the BEST decision you will ever make.

We have had our kids at LCS since 2008 and can't be more grateful for the way this ministry is run and what they have done for us. From the administration to the teachers we have never received anything but support. The teachers that our children have had were all highly trained in their specific subjects and accessible for parent involvement. The LCS discipline policy requires students to meet high standards for behavior and students who disrupt classrooms are not tolerated. We believe that it is BECAUSE of the structure at LCS, not in SPITE of it, that our kids have been so successful there. Our kids happen to be on the gifted side and they were/are sufficiently challenged enough to score very high nationally on their standardized testing, with the first one to graduate receiving high scores on AP tests & the SAT which earned him a full scholarship to a private college. We've also seen many students with learning challenges successfully re-enter main-stream classrooms through the Lakeside Learning Solutions program. We have rarely witnessed a ministry fulfill their mission statement so fully. "Training Students to become Fully Equipped" truly is Lakeside's first priority.

My children have attended Lakeside Christian School since 2007. Two of my boys have learning disabilities and the third has ADHD. My oldest has autism. As far as individualized help, my children run the gamut. The Christ-centered culture and behavior plan at our school has enabled my children to grow spiritually and be challenged academically. The mainstream environment is rigorous and the discipline serves to put responsibility for behavior into the hand of the child. My sons have learned to own their choices and understand real life expectations. Each of my children's needs have been met starting at their level and their learning has been scaffolded as required to help them grow into truly independent learners. The highly qualified staff of teachers and therapists work to meet the needs of every learner at Lakeside. Children there are valued as precious gifts from the Lord and the staff takes their responsibility very seriously and works hard for every child to train them up in the way they should go to fulfill, in the case of my boys, Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you; plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope".

Horrible school... They allow novice teachers to ruin and determine a childs future through "on the job training" experimenting! I did not enjoy my childs time spent at the school. They have no patience for children who require more attention and their strict strategies do not work for all. If your child requires education from a more indivualized perspective, than this school is not for him/her! Be careful prior to enrolling your child and do your research!

I went to Lakeside Christian School from K-4 all the way through my senior year of high school and I would never ever change that. Lakeside and it's staff are amazing. They truly love the Lord first and care about every single one of their students. Lakeside really has become like my second home and its staff my family. They have helped me grow mentally, academically, and spiritually more than they will ever know and I am immensely grateful for the privilege of calling LCS my Alma mater! I would strongly encourage anyone contemplating Lakeside for their children to pursue it, its the best decision you'll ever make.

Most amazing place you could ever put your kids! Caring is an understatement, they truly go above and beyond to nurture your child's mind and their character. I had a child who would jump out of a moving car, vomit and hit himself to get out of going to his last school. Now he sleeps on the couch in his uniform and can't wait to drive the 1 hour each way it takes us to get to Lakeside. Their NILD program is a gift of peace to all familiies and their Gifted programs are beyond anything anyone could wish for. Our daughter is working 1 year ahead in her curriculum (at a national level) while learning with her peers. Beg and borrow to get your kids into this school. The principal told me that miracles happen at Lakeside and I must say, he UNDERsold. Good luck to you in your search, but I do not think you will could ever be disappointed with Lakeside!

Lakeside Christian School is the single biggest blessing in our lives outside of our church home. We have three children at Lakeside and are absolutely amazed at the professionalism, courtesy and most important Godliness of the entire staff.

Love this school! Its the first time I've felt, as a parent, that my child is really being CARED for and that he is learning at his potential.
