This school has been an absolute blessing to our son. His self esteem has improved significantly since placing him at Lakeside and the bullying and 'drama'tizing he endured at a nearby school have ceased and I have been assured the administration at LHS has a zero tolerance policy towards bullying. We were also impressed with the facilities, the availability of self esteem promoting activities as well as with the athletics programs and parental involvement in the booster clubs we so enjoy. Again, we have been truly blessed by this school in the life of our son.

This school places too many resources within sports while neglecting efficient education. Most of the teachers double as coaches, who prioritize physical ability over mental ability.

Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority. This shift in demographics poses difficulties for schools as they work to accommodate children of varying language abilities and socio-economic backgrounds.
Being a parent is never easy, but some children are more challenging than others. If you're concerned that your child's behavioral issues might be more than just temporary, consider whether an alternative school might be the next move.
All students deserve to have an equal chance at academic success but not every student learns in the same way. Alternative schools provide students with unique challenges or abilities an opportunity to succeed in a different educational setting.
