There was a very diverse group of students and there was never a lack of things to do. I went from a local private school for one year to Lakeshore and felt like I was a little behind everyone else. That being said, the teachers were great.

Both my husband and I attended Lakeshore High School. After graduating from both undergraduate and graduates schools, we moved back to the area and bought a house in the Lakeshore school district again. We're looking forward to our children going to Lakeshore. It's an incredible school where the teachers truly care about each student and the staff works to know the students and their families. Great athletic and band programs, as well as the math & science center too.

As an Alum of Lakeshore High School, I can honestly say that the staff and curriculum will prepare you for college and beyond. I'm entering my Master's degree program and I am indebted to the staff at LHS for the preparation I received. I moved to Lakeshore my sophomore year of high school and was immediately accepted. One staff member even told my parents it was like I had gone there since elementary school. It is a welcoming community and I would recommend anyone to move to Stevensville or Baroda so their children can attend Lakeshore Public Schools.

I attended this school a few years ago.. The students were bullies... I had no friends there because all of the students were stuck up....Lakeshore only cares about money..so if they didn't have money they'd probably be a 'C' grade school...plus, if you don't have money, you won't fit in with the other students.

I was shocked to attend college and find they were using the same book that I used at Lakeshore 3 yrs prior and Lakeshore covered it in more detail!!!

My 4 children graduated from Lakeshore well-prepared to attend and graduate from college. I am seeing more diversity among the students, albeit there could be a greater mix. I'm sure that will come. One daughter was in the Math/Science Center, which enabled her to learn at a higher level/faster pace and also earned her college credits. The band program is excellent for teaching leadership, team work and the rewards of hard work, having taken 1st place and no lower than 3rd the past 10 years. It was selected to represent the entire state at the WWII memorial dedication in D.C., an incredible honor. I'm proud to recommend LHHS as an excellent school.

I am a 2005 Graduate of LHS and I can say as a student who moved into the area from a very small town that Lakeshore provides a great environment for students of all ages. As with anything, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. The educational opportunities at Lakeshore were vast. I attended only basic classes and still scored above average on all of my standardized testing, The Math and Science Center was not the only program offered. Many upper-level classes as well as educationally based after school programs do many things for the students, the school and the community.

For the area, Lakeshore is an OK school. Southwest Michigan, let alone Michigan, is not the best place to have kids educated. When kids move into Lakeshore they are 1+ years ahead of Lakeshore students. The school offers NO diversity; there are only whites. Not a good place to have a kid grow up at all; a lot of racism develops. I can count the number of non-white students on my hands. The academics are above average for the area but some programs suffer, especially German and English. There is an elitist math-science center that gets the school in the news and that's about it. The guidance counselors are not well informed- don t listen to them. The biggest downside of Lakeshore is the technology, or lack thereof; it s very outdated. The athletics/band programs are acceptable on the state level but don't show much nationally.

Lakeshore High School has the finest faculty, facilities, and academics of the several public school I have worked with. Classroom instruction, variety of courses, and results--as observed in projects, papers, and test score--are of an impressive and uncommon quality. Extracurricular opportunities are extensive. The only facility the school lacks is a pool--though it has an agreement with a nearby school district to use its pool. The only course offering it lacks is Latin. The music program is the finest in Southwest Michigan. The marching and symphonic bands, in particular, have proven themselves in numerous festivals, competitions, state championships, and national performances to be absolutely first rate. Likewise, the athletic programs at Lakeshore consitently prove their prowess and strength. Parent involvement exceeds that of any school of which I have been a part (7 districts) and undoubtedly contributes to Lakeshore's success. The teachers are exceptional. The community is friendly and supportive.

I'm a 2001 graduate of LHS. The wide variety of courses offered at LHS definitely helped prepare me for the liberal arts college I am currently attending.Although every school system has its problems, I feel privileged to have graduated from LHS. I received a quality education from this school district and would recommend it to others.

I graduated from Lakeshore in 2002 and have since gone on to study at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago, IL. Lakeshore was an excellent place to start my education. The teachers, especially in the Math & Science Center, stress the importance of learning and work personally with students before, during, and after class to make sure that the material is learned and not just memorized. The preparation I recieved for my college experience is almost unbelievable. Even going to a Tech. school, some of the material I am covering now I already have had introductions to back in at Lakeshore High School.
