I would like to see change in the way problems are dealt with in Lakeside High School. They are moving forward tremendously with their new Restorative Justice program which is phenomenal to see the impact they have on the students. However, specifically the senior counselor, should be doing better. We used to have an incredible senior counselor, but sadly she retired. The new counselor, who has been a counselor for many years now isn't struggling, but is not productively communicating with her students. Seniors are struggling through their final year of high school with minimum knowledge of what the future holds for them. This counselor has not informed us of any scholarship information or any college information to be quite frank. This entire situation is frustrating, but because of the overwhelmingly helpful Lakeside teacher community we are getting information from our Math, English, and even arts teachers.

The school is always improving and teachers and administration are open to change. Funding for arts and sports are above average and nearly all teachers are happy to help students beyond normal expectations. Learning environment is very good, and the administration takes complaints or suggestions seriously. College planning is very in depth at Lakeside, and counselors are always available to help with any questions or processes involving college, going into the workforce, scholarships, or loans. Campus and classrooms are well maintained and nice.
I am proud to say that I will be a 14 year senior at Lakeside this year! I started when they first built the pre-school and I’ve seen many changes throughout my years here. I have always felt at home and have never had issues with the administration. They put the students first and listen to us for feedback on what they can do to improve. I’m gonna miss it but I’m excited to see where I end up.
