I have been very impressive with the staff, students and technologies at Lakeshore Elementary. They bring a holistic approach to learning by fostering all aspects of growth and development in the students.Tamara S. Milobinski, parent
Lakeshore met and exceeded our expectations at every turn. The staff is highly qualified and deeply cares about every student and family. We have always been encouraged to participate in our children's education and kept informed of needs, concerns, and achievements. The PTO is active and always seeking to improve Lakeshore for staff and students by providing funds and resources that are beyond the WO budget.Eva Marie Gugino, parent
