A school dedicated to fostering lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
Lakeshore Elementary is a learning-centered school which provides a quality education for each individual child. Educators use various types of data to track progress of our students. It is important for all stakeholders, including students to understand the expectations of their grade level. We value parent and community involvement to better enhance the educational experience at Lakeshore.
Our Values Are:
Our educational program is enriched with music, art, technology, physical education and media. During the 2015-2016 school year we will be working to provide a focus on STEAM education. Every grade level emphasizes reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies. K-5 participates in flexible groups within their own classrooms. In grades K-5, students may participate in cross-grade level grouping for math and reading during Pirate Time. We offer an extensive exceptional children’s program that includes: EC Inclusion, EC Resource, EC Self Contained, and EC Pre-k settings. All students receive differentiation within the regular classroom day and are offered extension activities after school through clubs.

We are a PBIS school and believe in offering positive behavior support for all of our students to encourage citizenship in our students!
