52 Parent Reviews for Lakeside High School

The school has issues as many schools do, though this school is definitely one of the worst I've seen. I hear many of the students talking about how bad school has become throughout the years, and how many teachers really aren't qualified. I'll also hear them question as to what the point is in doing ...  Read more

I selected this school & moved to be on this side of town for my kids to attend Lakeside. This is their second year & mostly likely will be their last. Not much of a difference than any other school in DeKalb. Yes the school is diverse, but racism is in full force!! So many cliques within the school ...  Read more

Don't let the new exterior fool you, Lakeside is a dump. The administration is a joke, racism runs rampant - black and white, the teachers only teach to the top students, the average students are left twisting in the wind, and the counselors are the worst I've ever seen. Make sure you record your phone ...  Read more

Lakeside is a pretty decent school compared to the other schools in the Atlanta area. However there is still some things that need to be done. The teachers who are bilingual have to understand that English speaking students do not always understand what they are saying and its frustrating to some of ...  Read more

Lakeside is a great school. To begin with, the school is very diverse, and full of people who come from many different backgrounds. When I think of Lakeside, I think of a mini-college.

This is my second year at Lakside High School, and I love it. My first year was great, and my second year is starting off great. For the most part the teachers are amazing. They care a lot about the students and are there to help you. The school has really stepped up from what it was before. There are ...  Read more

Bar-none, the best neighborhood HS in Atlanta. Serving a population of almost 2000, the school still consistently graduates classes of over 400 students, sending the majority (my class 4 years ago was over 90%) to four year colleges. The school prepares students for competitive colleges, and is even ...  Read more

School has improved vastly since past principal. Still struggles with over crowding, and very poor math teachers. New Principal is doing the best he can given the confines of the county.
