Lake Shore Central School District Reviews

Lake Shore Central School District is fairly small which poses both pros and cons. For me, I like smaller classes and being familiar with everyone in my school. On the down side of that, smaller population means a less pool of kids to select for sports, musical and clubs. In some cases the population effects the activities because there is lack of participation and this leads to the cancelling of certain opportunities for students. Overall, my experience at Lake Shore in regards to academics exceeded my expectations. When it comes to the actual student life, Lake Shore unfortunately contains a few gaps that will hopefully be filled in the future.

I like the majority of the teachers, it's always a friendly atmosphere and my kids love it as well. I grew up in this district as well and My name is also on a plaque at the AJ Schmidt school for the second highest average of the school when I was in fourth grade! My kids find it exciting to see their mom up on the wall in the entrance way when they walk into school each and every morning!
I was lucky enough to have found a few close friends to make my four years tolerable. There are a select few faculty members who are amazing that helped contribute to my survival of these past four years. Otherwise, the students aren't all that kind and some of the faculty is no better. Guidance counselors are no help at all, especially once it comes down to college applications, apparently it's too stressful to fill out their one section on the common app. Sometimes if you're lucky your guidance counselor will even forget your name. Overall my experience here has not been positive, I should've changed schools before it was too late.
