Lakeside is a very diverse school with various walks of life not only with students but staff as well. Lakeside is like a small community to me seeing the same faces as my daughter grows up every year and the more new students and faculty the better. Its aeesome with a great focus on math and science as well as dependable before and aftercare for hard working parents. We started our journey in kindergarten and we are rolling right along currently in 2nd grade!

I hate this school.... my daughter was stabbed With a pencil.; nobody contacted me about this incident. My daughter told me on my way home from picking her up from school. However they do contact me for my daughter defending herself from kids bullying her.

Lakeside is a great school. My children has attended this school two years now. There are several activities that are presented throughout the year that helps the students and parents say on the same levels, we all need a refresher at times. This school has displayed outstanding educated teachers, wanting to make a difference in our children. Lakeside has many different opportunities for success. Great student, school and staff!

Lakeside academy has been a great school for our kids. The teachers have all been wonderful. There are many opportunities for kids to learn outside the classroom in many of the after school clubs or enrichment courses that they offer. Not many elementary schools offer science clubs, robotics club, readers club, Or Beta Club to their students.

Lakeside is a awesome school my daughter has shown so much improvement in reading and writing. Big Ups to Mrs.White. My daughter is awesome in math :) This is just the beginning for her she is currently in kindergarten. She will be attending lakeside through the 5th grade. I have heard so many great things about Lakeside academically. I'm seeing changes in my child. The only thing I wish that they bring back Spanish class. I would love for my daughter to learn Spanish !

Some of the teachers here I am very pleased with, because you can see their passion for teaching and their love for children. Shout out to Mrs. Knox, Mr. Core, and a few others, because of this! If it wasn't for you guys, my child would be elsewhere, because not all of your staff shares this passion and it is obvious. Thank you for always being friendly, not just to me and my child, but to everyone who passes through these hallways. Thank you for being the light of the school and I hope the other staff members follow in your footsteps :)

Lakeside Academy is not a school for every child. If your child is not a hard worker they will not excel. If you child has behavioral issues you will have an issue with this school. Marsha Drake leads the school in her own way- to some parents she's off putting BUT she leads by example and hopes that the kids realize her expectation. It works with kids when the parent, teacher, and administration are on the same page. If you are a parent who expects the school to teach your child only -this is not the school for you. You will be involved due to the curriculum. If you feel no one should tell your child what they should and should not do or say -this is not the school for you. Children are expected to follow rules and expectations regardless if the parent says differently at home. If you are quick to tell your child when you don't agree with the story your child told you that you are going to go to the school and "tell the teacher off" without talking to the teachers to find out the whole story - do yourself a favor do not enroll your child in this school. No one expects much from inner city kids but Ms. Drake does and tries to enforce it in the school. She believes in these kids.

Lakeside Academy is a challenging school for elementary children who want to succeed and go on to a school of higher learning: College or trade school.

My child attended 2 yrs. 2010-11 at Lakeside and it was very disappointing. Mrs. Drake, the principal, is the most rude, unfriendly, sour educator I've ever seen. She may or may not even speak, depending on her mood. So many discipline problems in classroom keep the atmosphere chaotic . School population is mostly low income which resulted in very low parent participation at most events. My child's thirst for learning was snuffed out at this school!. Avoid school at all costs!!

The enviroment that my child is always in to me is a blessing. The teachers are constantly giving the children praises. For every 1 negative thing a child may do the teacher tries and gives them 5 positives.

Last year (06/07) my children had a wonderful year and the teachers and administrators could not have been more helpful. This year I removed my child from the school after his teacher proved to be rude to me, unable to maintain discipline in her class. The focus of the school this year seems to be only the topics of the 'no child left behind act' and meeting the state minimums rather than a true well rounded education. My children can now use a computer but know very little about history or language arts. They rarely bring home crafts and the homework is minimal. The math program chosen by the school system as a whole is a sad excuse for a method of teaching math. No instructions are sent home for the parents when they come up with 'creative' methods of teaching. Very frustrating.

Lakeside Academy is a great school. Children are taught important social and behavior skills. They have great science and computer labs that make learning fun. Lakeside also has a great parent workroom that makes volunteering easy. The school has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Lakeside Academy is a wonderful magnet school.

Even though this is a magnet school I do not feel that is is any better. The some teachers are very rude. Many student fall through the cracks and are not helped when they have special needs. Basic skills are not taught. Such as reading and math. Instead they focus on computers and science. I believe students are being cheated out of a good educaton. Parents are 'required' to be involved, but this rule is not inforced. Most parents never enter the building.
