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.
principal is the worst, I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone with the current leadership
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.
The teachers are great! I love the comunication and the love that they have with my son.
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!
Lakeside Elementary is a fantastic school with awesome, dedicated teachers and staff :) I appreciate the way they teach and prepare the students for the FCAT.
I have to say this school is great. I have two children at this school. No complaints. All teachers are great. They use the best strategies they can to help students. Very concern with education. Security in school is excellent. I will definetely recommend this school. Very organized.
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!
This is an excellent school, kids and parents love, very high academic level plus moral values. My daugther love it. i hope it can teach 6th grade.
teachers are very involved with my childs honors. Better than I have seen.
My son is in kindergarten at Lakeside and I highly recommend this school! What more could you ask for, excellent school, excellent teachers (Mrs. McMillan), excellent staff and excellent principal (Mrs. Fee)!
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.
Excellent school , My child go to first grade and we are very happy with the school.
Excellent school! I have a child with PDD-NOS and every teacher has done an excellent job at helping my child progress in his IEP. He is a very happy child in school and we feel very blessed to have him in the 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!
