This is the best in public education that is available. With regard to comments about 2 grades being in one class: this is an extremely small school. Grades that were put in a single class had less than 10 students per grade. This is an acceptable practice not only at small schools but at larger ones ...  Read more

Very unorganized last year. Two grades put into one classroom. To many interruptions. Real problems did not get fixed. Short staff to watch children. Some children do not understand the homework. Acting crew from another school came in to use the children as a class singing project whithout parents ...  Read more

The statements made in the posting of April 17th are wrong. Lakeside has never had a full-time superintendent, and has not voted to hire one. The board has voted to hire a person to be both superintendent (30% FTE) and principal (70% FTE). The cost of the superintendent/principal is nowhere near ...  Read more

Both my children attend Lakeside and it is an excellent school. The teachers and principal are dedicated, caring and fabulous. The small size allows for the premier education for a public school.

Lakeside continues to offer an excellent program even in the midst of the California budget melt-down. Enrichment includes physical education and sports, dance, music (including after school lessons), Spanish, Robotics, Hip Hop, and drama

Great Principal, Great Teachers. Small intimate environment and class sizes. Like getting a private education in a public school.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
