Lakeside School Reviews

Lakeside is not for the fainthearted. I attended the school from the 5th-12th grade. The academics are of course top notch and prepare you well for college courses, but you should study HARD to keep up everything. Fortunately, teachers are more than accommodating and open to meeting with students during their free time. It is all too common to walk into the math office during any hour and see teachers helping students with homework, test/quiz corrections, etc. You must take the initiative to do well at Lakeside, though. You can't be embarrassed to ask questions when you're confused. Sensitivity has no place in the classroom, or at Lakeside in general. The school has a very competitive atmosphere- particularly when applying for colleges. That being said, students are mostly amicable. Sports are big Lakeside, and we generally do well.
Review Your School
I absolutely love being a student at Lakeside School. The teachers are invested in your success, the academics are challenging yet interesting, and my peers are dedicated students, too.
Much of the administration is accessible to the students, and are very helpful and friendly people. There are of course, the people in the background like trustees and office staff who we rarely ever meet or contact, but may influence the school's policies. The dress code is very lax - we are able to wear nearly anything. Attendance is also rarely a problem. We are assigned school maintenance work if we forget to sign in multiple times or are caught skipping class. Students often leave the campus without trouble, although this is not allowed. There are occasional conflicts between administration and students, but the administration usually is stubborn and sticks to its decisions, and the students eventually forget about it.
