Throughout my years at Lakeside High School, I have gone through many experiences. The good experiences do outweigh the bad ones, but there is always room to grow in every situation. I enjoyed the teachers and how they were determined to make our learning experiences fun. The teachers always knew how to make students comfortable and give the appropriate amount of attention to help them succeed. At Lakeside, I felt very safe physically and emotionally. I could not name all of my amazing experiences, because there are too many to tell. Although it is an amazing environment, I feel as though the administration could improve their communication with the students. I felt as though I was not aware of many of the events happening involving my school. I also believe the guidance counselors could communicate with the students their plans, GPA, scholarship opportunities, and more. I am a firm believer that Lakeside High School is an astonishing school. Go panthers!

The past four years I have spent at Lakeside High School has been a rollercoaster. When I was an underclassman, all the upperclassmen said that junior year would be the hardest year and they were right. I took harder classes than I did the previous years, but I got through it. The teachers at Lakeside are willing to help you if you are struggling, which I was during my junior year. What I loved most about Lakeside is softball. Softball provided me with so many different friendships and memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. It was hard to juggle my school work and softball, but my teachers helped me a lot. Another experience I loved about Lakeside would have to be the student body's love for sports. There is usually tons of students that come to the sports events. As a softball player I know that having a crowd motivates the team to do better in the game. I would not want to go to any other high school, but Lakeside.
The students that attend Lakeside High School are very competitive; however, I do not enjoy school as much because it is very academic oriented. I wish there were field trips that were more enjoyable yet a learning experience at the same time. Other than that, Lakeside is a great school to attend, and the students are easy to get along with for the most part. Also, the marching band program is terrific!
