10 Reasons to Choose Lakeside


1) Lakeside is a family-oriented K-8 charter school where every child gets individual attention. Our class sizes are small, every student is known by name, and our parents are highly involved.


2) We encourage a dynamic learning process through rigorous academics in a safe environment. All Lakeside students receive a balanced approach to education through the Core Knowledge Curriculum in Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, Music and the Arts. We also teach Singapore-Math in Focus - a problem-solving methodology that promotes critical thinking, systematic thought skills, and a deeper understanding of math concepts.


3) Our staff and student population are diverse. We are intentional about creating multicultural learning environments because we believe that everyone can teach and learn from each other.


4) Lakeside creates future leaders by focusing on three pillars of strength: scholarship, leadership and citizenship. These pillars ensure students are challenged academically, learn valuable leadership skills, and are engaged in community service.


5) Our teachers dedicate themselves to the field of education because they know it is changing the future. We have a nurturing staff that cares for your child as an individual. We encourage lifelong learning and inspire students to be their best at all times.

7) We offer diverse after-school programs such as a Theater Club, Lego Club, and Soccer Club. These extracurricular activities help our students come together like a family and create lasting memories. Our students maintain focus and balance classroom learning with other interests.


8) Lakeside prepares students to go into the world with confidence, character, and strong leadership skills. We offer buddy programs that pair older children with younger ones to build self-confidence and a sense of belonging. Buddy systems help children learn important social skills and make more friends.


9) We offer fun field trips (like going to the zoo) that encourage our students to appreciate and enjoy the world around them.


10) We are tuition-free! Unlike private schools, which have heavy tuition, Lakeside is free. We offer similar benefits to a private school, such as smaller class sizes, individualized instruction, and enriching opportunities.
