The academic experience at Lakeside is very rewarding. With over 30 AP classes, I was able to take whatever classes I wanted. I especially enjoyed taking the AP Physics Electricity and Magnetism class, the only one in the region. Most of the teachers are outstanding and really care about their students. They push us and challenge us, and do their best to prepare us for college. That being said, the Lakeside facilities can often be less than desirable. Understandably, it is an older building, but often times both the inside and outside appearances leave much to be desired. Overcrowding is a serious issue.
