This school is pretty bad. A lot of the students are bad and do poorly in school. Also the school focuses too much on unimportant stuff. Some teachers are just plain lazy. Not all teachers though ,some do try. Lakeside has a ton of spirit and school pride which is wonderful!

My experience with Lakeside was positive. My son attended 6-8th grade there and was encouraged to do his best, join sports and participate in activities. When he needed extra help his teachers were more than happy to stay after school. If I needed to speak with anyone I had no problem. My son is now in 10th grade and takes advanced classes, I attribute this to the years he sent at Lakeside. My daughter attends 6th grade at Lakeside this school year, and I look forward to the same positive experience. Joining PTO is a must, they support the school and make the kids experience a great one.

Lakeside Middle School is the worst school to have your kids to go to it's drama filled. A lot of fights for no reason,kids in that school is blood thirsty always wanting to see a fight like really.Teachers in that school is rude since there teachers they can write you up and the principal will believe it cause it's the teachers words.They got perverts in that school like don't let your kids go to that school

This school means alot to me. I learned how to be a leader, and not fall into peer pressure. As I fall into the last year there I can truly say there is no better school than this! (besides the MMA Marine Military Academy)

This school is outragously strict! Not that strict is bad, but they are thinking about making 'one way' hallways? This will make all the students late for class! How come students get in trouble for having chewing gum, but the teachers are allowed to have food and drink in front of the class? And what's with this lunch schedule that they sometimes do? You have to sit down and wait to be called on to get inline for food? And you have to be completely quiet or you get detention? I thought lunch time was when you are supposed to socialize since there is no recess I'm glad I left before all this started!

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.
