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 stayed at this school because of the academics, and I am so glad that I did. Every teacher here adores their subject. There are some teachers that aren't as good as others, but every teacher I've had here has at least loved their job. All teachers are free sometime between classes and encourage meeting. I got through Honors Precalculus by meeting with a teacher near every day.Many students are close with at least one teacher, and every teacher has a few students they are really close to. The focus seems to be in the STEM fields, but all classes are good (just not advertised as much). Students are diverse racially and economically (yes, not everyone is a rich kid here), but not so politically--it is very liberal. The academic rigor causes a great deal of stress and theres definite "stress competition". A lot of people don't sleep. Overall, the students are excited about their classes and there are definitely a lot of nerds.
Lakeside is for hard-workers who enjoys rigorous classes and deep discussions. Whether in class or at lunch, students are talking about current events or advocating for their passions. Most of the teachers are extraordinary; they are genuinely caring and always tries to be available for outside of the classroom help. Being among such high-achieving, talented students may be hard at times but their contributions do teach me a lot. It has made me love being a small fish in a big pond.
