    Lakeside received an excellent new principal in 2009. Good students can thrive and win admission to elite colleges. Planning is underway for an upgrade of facilities. Parent involvement is high. A new county-administered computer system did mishandle student and teacher assignments at the beginning of the year, but this has been corrected.

    Very overcrowded. Principal seems to lack leadership and is more politically concerned than academics. Disrespect from many students in the classrooms is an issue.
