Lakeshore is a wonderful school! My first grader is already learning multiplcation and division! The PTA does fun family nights once a month which are awesome, and the teachers and staff really care about the kids and want them to succeed. My only complaint is the amount of sugary treats my son gets for doing well...:(
As a grandparent, who has visited and spent time in a couple of classrooms, I am impressed with Lake Shore Elementary Staff and the direction of the school. I am very happy to have my grandchild at your school! Thank you all for your hard work towards our future!
Very dedicated teachers whom utmost concerns are about the success of The Students in Lake Shore both academically and the children's welfare..
I love this school! My family has had students there over the past 6 years. I think the snootiness mentioned came from the Challenge (gifted) program students, parents, and teacher. They're no longer at our school, and the rest of us are glad. Teachers are friendly and approachable.
The school is demanding and has high standards. The teachers are highly skilled. In particular, they do a wonderful job working with students with dramatically different home backgrounds. There are very wealthy kids at Lakeshore. There are also kids with families on public assistance at our school. The principal is very receptive to any feedback or suggestions. The parents are actually a little 'too' involved at this school. This probably relates to the other posts about snootiness. Although my husband and are both college graduates, we notice that most of the soccer moms' at this school believe their children are budding little Einsteins and need to be 'challenged' with more homework and extra projects. The only drawback I can see is the limited number of after school activities. Other schools in the district have after school activities. I am not sure why Lakeshore doesn't.
Great school we have had no negative experiences with this school! m Shanaberger
This is a great school if you dont mind a stuck up snooty staff. My child had been in the challenge program and decided he wanted to go to 'normal' school.We tried Lake Shore and found the staff to be stuck up rude and snotty. We felt very uncomfortable there and after 3 weeks my son asked to go to another school.
I have had 3 children in Lake Shore and my experience has been extrememly positive. Most of the teachers are excellent, but the thing that makes the most difference is a high percentage of parent involvement and commitement to the school. The school is also very community oriented which is a value I like my children to learn. If I could keep all my kids there all they way through, I would, but they are boundry exception and I think I am running out of time. This is a great school.
We have had great experiences at Lake Shore but have also had a couple really bad ones that should have been handled by the staff much faster manner than they were. There are a few outstanding teachers there that go the extra mile with your child.
