Welcome to Lakeside Academy

A strong home and school partnership is the cornerstone that is needed when building success for all students. The teachers, staff and administration count on your support. Together, we can make a difference. 

I look forward to working with you and your children and hope to see you during the school year.

In 2009 Lakeside Academy became an inclusive International Baccalaureate school, so that all students would benefit from the IB Framework for Teaching. The Middle Years Program (IBMYP) provides a framework which allows students to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills for life in the 21st century. Principle aims of International Education:

  • to awaken the intelligence of students and teach them to relate the content of the classroom to the realities of the world outside

  • to further international understanding by fostering a global perspective

  • to establish curricula and diploma norms to fully understand issues and problems

  • to develop respect and understanding for a peaceful and productive future 

 

 

Testimonials

For anyone on the fence between an IB World education and private school, I’ll offer my personal experience for your consideration. My parents immigrated here from Greece and education was a high priority to them. My sister and I were sent to private school way back then (when the International Baccalaureate curriculum did not exist! – and academically promising options that my parents felt confident with were limited.

I sent my son to an IB elementary school (Children’s World Academy) and, because I could compare first-hand, I had no hesitation that Lakeside would continue to provide him with an IB education that is equivalent to or better than private school. We are not disappointed. He has thrived and excelled, and I can confidently say that he is not missing out by attending high school at Lakeside rather than at a private school. The whole Lakeside package is simply exceptional – the academic curriculum, dedicated community service, extracurricular activities and the teachers and students.

Why Lakeside?

As our children graduate from primary school, we parents now have a choice. We choose, with our children, what high school they will attend. This choice is important, as it is a big part of their coming of age. The lessons learned, the friends made and the values instilled shape us for the rest of our lives.

There are many good schools to chose from, each offering their own benefits. What we want you to know is what benefits Lakeside Academy has to offer. The most important aspect about Lakeside is that it is a school where the student comes first. Now pretty much every school will tell you that, and we believe they are sincere, but at Lakeside, they go above and beyond the usual efforts to ensure that each individual student has exactly what they need to succeed. They do this every single day
