I attended Lakeside for high school and absolutely loved my experience. The classes are challenging in the best way and each student has access to an amazing support network of teachers, faculty, administrators, counselors, peer tutors and more. The connections I made at Lakeside I know will stay with me throughout the rest of my life and I am extremely proud to be a Lakeside alum . I would highly recommend Lakeside to any student looking for an unforgettable high school experience that prepares you for college and beyond!

I started thinking that Bill Gates is both the luck and curse of this school. Admissions committee is so much under pressure. I have a great friend with a very talented daughter who speaks four languages, including Mandarin and Spanish, plays piano handsomely, is an excellent athlete with straight As and perfect references, was in 99% in SSAT both math and English with a great snapshot, is very social and kind; could not get into LS. As a parent, I am questioning whether we really are the best school, picking up the best kids in every term?... Are we a school discriminating against economical diversity and going for just the “visible” diversity to save the image?... Making our kids believe that they are the best and are developing socially well, whereas the reality is pretty different.
Lakeside is full of opportunities from amazing classes to the GSL program. It struggles in some aspects- mainly its punishment system, the JC. The JC is a group of students that literally determine other students fate, and to make matters worse, the faculty involved are very biased towards people with a lot of money and connections to the school. Lakeside is also lacking in parties and sporting events aren't attended, but I've met amazing friends through Lakeside and feel extremely prepared for college.
