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!

My kids are 2nd & 4th grade at Lakeside. This is there first year attending the school. The dedication the teachers have is outstanding & it's because of the focus the Principal has on the students.

This is a great school, whith an even better future. the fact that they encourage parents participation definitelly improves the outcome! A highly motivated team is their first great asset, added to the quality of the teachers and the community involvement.

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.

I love the spirit of this school, they are really motivated and enthusiastic and the kids reflects that in their attitude about learning. My son loves his school and can't wait for the vacations to be over and go back to class!

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.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
