This school Is about average, the academia is the very basic and the teachers greatly favorite those students that parents are involve and volunteering. Which I believe they are not being fair with the good students. Overall is just OK.

I myself went to this school growing up. My son started here in 2nd grade we had a lot of trouble with his teacher that year. However, my son was prepared and was academically challenged and is now in Jr. High where he is a top performer. My daughter started Kinder last year and I was not happy. She was not succeeding, had a really tough transition. She received negative feedback on a regular basis. This year in 1st grade she is still struggling however, she is a lot more positive and is catching up. When we have contacted the school our questions were answered however, solutions were not always obtained. I love this area and the school but, I feel that the individual teacher is where success is made.

My experience with this school has been great all around. My child's K teacher is great & the communication with her is excellent. I am unfortunately moving out of the area & hope that I can find a school similar to this where I am going.

this school is OK, my daughter loves it. My only concern is that they don't use proper hand sanitizing and they get sick a lot, if you take a sanitizer they will take it away from your child.

My experience has been great in Lakeside Elementary. Last year my daughter started Kinder and we were afraid of her adjustment because she is very shy, we recently moved from another country and english is her second language. Surprisingly thanks to her teacher and the friendly staff the transition was smoothe and quick. She in first grade and she is still very happy and loves going to school every morning. She learn to read and write.. the school is great!

We moved from NJ to this school district because of the teachers and staff. The teachers have all been great, always responding to my questions, emails and notes. I have volunteered in the school for the past 4 years and am always pleased to see the interaction of the students with the staff. The teachers here are superb! They really want all of their students to succeed. The PTA is absolutely wonderful - they give back so much to the school. New principal came in last year, along with budget cuts, but school is still wonderful.

I am a grandmother who volunteers one day a week in my grandson's 2nd grade class and I'm so glad I signed up. It's given me a close up view of this wonderful school and my grandson's teacher, Ms. Dewberry, who is absolutely wonderful - we feel very blessed to have Cristian at this school.

This school is beyond amazing. I started this school in K, and I was very upset to leave it when I moved in 5th grade. The teachers always showed an unbelievable amount of kindness to each and every student who's path they crossed. They have many "jobs" at Lakeside such as safety partols, TOTS, green team, and the news crew (WLNN.)Their student council is a neat, organized program, and all of the school's after school events (book fairs, writing on the walls, ext.) bring together family. Each teacher I had taught me important life lessons I will never forget. I would recommend this school to ANYBODY!

I love this school, my son is in kindergarten and my two nephews are in the fourth grade. The teachers are amazing! The customer service in the office area is exceptional. My kids look forward to attending Lakeside. Mrs. Fee's (The Principal) enthusiasm is so refreshing. I would definitely recommend this school.

This school is excellent. I have three kids (K, 3rd and 4th grade) and all their teachers are terrific. They simply make the kids love learning and having fun in the same time and it is great. The admnistration is fantastic. They deliver a happy and safe environment for our kids.

Both my children attend Lakeside Elementary and I am very happy with the school. The principal sets the tone and therefore it is a 'class act' school. They encourage parent participation and have lots of fun extra events for the parents to do with their kids. Example is 'math night', book fair night, reading night, ice cream social, comedy night, writing on the walls, etc. It is a safe, fun, comfortable environment for the students and even though I am very picky (aren't all parents?) I am confident this is the right place for my children! Hats of to the Principal, Teacher, Staff and Volunteers at Lakeside Elementary!

Lakeside is a jewel in the crown of Broward County. Anyone who has a child at Lakeside will tell you how fotunate they are. The teachers at all grade levels are terrific. Mrs. Fee, the principal, always has a warm smile and hug for her students. She exemplies what an educator should be. The aftercare program is first rate. I love this school!

Lakeside is a wonderful, happy place to send your kids. The Principal is one of a kind and very involved in all activities. Academically the school could be more challenging, however they do have a gifted/high achiever's class that is excellent. The teacher's are caring and involved.

Lakeside has proved to be a great school for both my daughters. They enjoyed every moment there. The teachers are second to none and the learning environment is superb. Being rated A+ years in a row, speaks for itself.

This school is absolutely wonderful! The principal stops to speak with every child she comes in contact with and she always has a smile on her face. Her leadership must be as wonderful as her attitude because the quality and effort you see in all that goes on is top notch... 100% terrific!

Wow! What can be said about Mrs. Fee, the principal. She is an amazing lady with an incredible staff. It is a pleasure to be associated with this school. Mrs. Fee greets every child (by name) every morning. Mrs. Walker, the assistant principal is just a doll to work with also. I do not have one complaint about any of the other teachers. They are all very dedicated to their profession and it shows. It has definately been a joy to have my children at this school. Also, what is so different, is that they encourage the parents participation in all that is done. There is an open door policy which is greatly appreciated.
