I have a thrid grader this year and have been more than pleased with Lakeside and all it has to offer. He is academically challenged, and loves the interaction with the older students. They have been great role models for him. He loves going to school everyday.

My 3 children have attended LCS for several years and each year we encourage friends to have their kids enroll. Our grautaed son is excelling in college and each one had an exceptional school year once again. Thank you administration and staff!

This is a very small school with a 'family' feel to it. The class sizes are great, my daughter get individualized work to challenge her abilities. The teachers are all very competent and friendly. The music department is small but enthusiastic. They have sports, but the teams are small. Everyone gets to play! Your child will not 'get lost' in this school. Everyone is expected to fulfill their potential.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
