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.
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!
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.
