3/23/2012teacherLake Shore is one of the best middle schools I've had the opportunity to work at as a substitute teacher. If you take a look around at the other middle schools in town, you'll know that isn't saying much but Lake Shore at least tries. As someone has already said, there is a huge disconnect between the teachers and the administration. The teachers are wonderful for the most part. Your child will learn from them. The failure is in the administration. There is a huge problem with discipline. If I send a kid out to the office because of behavior issues, they are sent right back to disrupt the class further. I've had entire classes walk out and the woman in the office just shrugged her shoulders. This should not happen. I think if the administrators got their act together, Lake Shore could be an amazing school. Until then, it's just slightly better than average (yet better than everyone else).
10/19/2011parentMy son loves his teachers. Its the administrators who are not on the same page, therefore the learning atmosphere is incomplete. How can the teachers/parents/students ever implement a working plan of action if the administrators always have a diffrent idea, a diffrent voice or a diffrent agenda? Administrators should be more proactive to helping thier students achieve greatness at all costs, and not be so apt to share thier bad attitudes. They almost detered my son's awesome attitude for school by "grouping" him with other children physically "like" him instead of his grades and character. Now I have to "meet" with them all?
8/21/2011parentThis school has the potential to strive for excellence. I believe with the proper structure from Teacher, Student and Parent involvement in the school and community the school came become and A school. Maybe the district should consider a new Principal.
11/23/2009studentHi there, I'm a student at Lakeshore and I have been nothing but impressed. I am in all honors classes and this is my first year hear, and they've implemented new rules and regulations to keep things running smoothly. The curriculum is generally rigorous and challenging, although some things come easy, but teachers really care! The children can be talkative and on occasion disruptive but the teachers do their best to keep the peace in the classroom. I've seen two fights this year but generally, most students- if not all are exceptionally well-mannered- are civil. I do not consider myself a popular student nor a person who follows trends and wears the latest make up or follows the latest gossip or does things that a typical, cliche 'popular' girl would do, but I am kindly treated by friends and teachers alike and have many friends here that are great influences.
9/23/2009parentMy Daughter is a 6 grader, and she loves the School and her Teachers. She pray ever nite for her School , Teachers and the Students for Sucess in learning and social awareness. Thank you
9/19/2009parentGreat administrtors and teachers, innovative curriculum despite funding challenges.
8/17/2009parentIm very pleased with this school. The teachers keep me informed and are always available to me with questions or concerns. I didnt see a very good rating when i was doing my research for my children to attend here last year but am glad that we gave it a chance. We look forward to spending our 8th grade year at lakeshore this returning schoolyear
4/22/2009studentAWESOME SCHOOL! I'VE LOVED IT SINCE I WALKED IN!!! Sure, there are fights, but there are fights at every school. So, if your child is serious about learning, take my advice and send them to the place my dreams came true at.
3/5/2009parentthis school is horribl. fights happened every day. teachers did not care about the students or their education. this school made me very unhappy and i took my child right out of it.if you want your child to be cared about and treated well dont send them there.
1/24/2009studentLake Shore isn't perfect..sure fights do break out almost everyday. But you do meet lots of amazing friends. you just have to know how to deal w/ certain situations. Honestly though Lake Shore is one of the worst schools though.( mostly because of fights and discipline issues)
11/26/2008studenthorrible school, worst school years i ever had, bad students and teachers. fights at school regulary.
7/2/2008studentmy school isn't perfect but i love it there.
2/5/2008parentThis is one of the worst schools I've ever seen. The teachers lower their standards to the unruly students that attend there. The intelligent children are ignored and have no resources to keep moving forward in their studies. The math department is the worst. The teachers rarely show up for conferences and getting anybody, including the pricipal, to return a phone call or do what they promise to do is impossible. If you love your student, don't send them here.
7/24/2007studentI am former student of Lake Shore.I had best 3 I could have possibly had there.Yes there are very disrespectful children there but the Teachers handle it as best as they can.All the teachers I had were very nice and helpful.The Principle isn't as good as she should be but she is there when she is needed.Fights rarely break out anymore,things are under control.
5/17/2007former studentI love this school. I used to go here for 6th - 8th grade. I passed with wonderful grades. I have help from the wonderfullest teachers ever . If it wasnt for them I wouldnt have gotten as far as I have.
2/24/2006parentI am very disappointed with this school as my son has been attending this school since 6th grade and now has gone from an 'A' student to a 'F' student and there is no programs to help me to help him to bring his grades up.
8/27/2005parentAs a first time parent at Lake Shore Middle, I have been nothing but impressed. The Principal seems extremely intelligent and caring. All of my child's teachers have been wonderful and do a great job of keeping me in the loop with my childs educational needs.
9/3/2003parentMost of the students in all of my childs classes are very disrespectful to the teachers, and the teachers have to constantly interrupt teaching to tell kids to be quiet, or pay attention, or send them out on referrals, etc. The principal needs to provide more support to the teachers, and get herself in each and every classroom and tell them kids how they expect them to behave. They are going to lose more good teachers, and good students because of all the ignorant others who are being disrespectful! Most of the problem stems from home, and how the parents allow their children to disrespect other adults is just unimaginable! These teachers need help now! This is interrupting my childs learning!
