This school is the worst school i have ever been to everything is done on computers so when mine was taken my grades fell and i haven't been able to bring them back up so if you want you child to have a nice safe environment don't send them here.
lakeside middle school is a horrible school. Your child would be safer in jail then here and the academics are terrible. I've been to the STEM Academy in Little elm and they are about a year ahead of lakeside academics. My child came home crying because of kids making fun of her and cursing at her. She even witnessed a fight on her second day. if you want your child to grow up in a safe Environment you will Not go to Lakeside. And almost everything is on computers so there's a high chance of the school getting hacked and the teachers never do anything to help the children with their studies,they say suck it up and study.
My child told me that being there is like being in a prison and that the teachers are horrible and there's something called DAEP where student are forced to dress in white and walk with khaki pants and are FORCED to do work i do NOT agree whith the school policy thanks for reviewing
Read what the parent on 4/16/2013 had to say and that pretty much sums it up. The only difference is that Mr. Winkler will contact parents back, he is a people pleaser... well all people but teachers. Anyways, there are a lot of teachers who do not enjoy being at work because they do not feel supported by admin. Students do walk around school listening to their headphones and eating food... then they want to do it in class as well. In order for this campus to improve administration would need to start holding students accountable for their grades instead of holding the teachers accountable for a students grade. If a student doesn't pass, it is the teacher that is made to feel bad, not the student. So, if you want your kid to pass all of his/her classes without having to do all their work, and you want your kid to get away with disrespecting teachers and breaking rules... this is the place to be!
Great experience at Lakeside! Mr. Winkler and his staff have done a great job. My daughter loves her Chromebook. Her teachers have been phenomenal. Very forward thinking. Always email back promptly whenever I have questions and are very willing to conference, tutor, etc. Thank you to the teachers and staff for providing a great learning environment.
My child loves her teachers and loves the experience that she has at lakeside this year. The school works to reward positive behavior and academics each week. Mr. Wrinkler sends home a weekly video email on sunday and gives all students and parents his cell number. We could not be happier. Our 8th grade daughter LOVES her chromebook, Project based learning and even the way they are gamifying learning! We are proud to be Lobos!
The absolute worst school my child has ever gone to. Dangerous, unorganized, and horrible excuses for authority figures. Mr. Winkler is a disrespectful, belittling, rude, narcissist. That is when you can get ahold of him. I have never seen anything like this in a school. I have had to pull my child out of this school due to the poor environment that she was subjected to. Do not put your child here if you are concerned with excelling in academics, safety, and respect.
They have made many positive changes over the last year. Please come by and see them. Each child will be given a laptop this year. The staff is helpful and friendly. You can even call or text the principal directly at 214.417.4660. (Mr. Winkler's cell)
