Our Number One Priority...

Our Academic Philosophy


The Lakeside School is a coeducational independent school for preschool through
grade 12.  Realizing that intellectual excellence, not mediocrity, sets the tone in our world of today and tomorrow, Lakeside strives to help its students achieve the highest standards in thought and performance.  With a goal of college preparation for all students, the objective of The Lakeside School is individual academic excellence.  Standards are sufficient to challenge the most gifted student to reach and maintain this high level, with minimum standards to encourage and challenge all students who cooperate to reach the highest academic record possible.  Inherent within this philosophy is the belief that student endeavors not be limited to academic pursuits, but to include a goal of producing individuals with a balanced perspective of intellectual, physical, and moral concepts in helping with a new generation of leaders based on our American heritage.  The Lakeside School is a non-denominational school, however, there is a strong emphasis placed on moral values.
