Discover this school
The Lakeshore staff believes in building rich relationships with students and families. We believe that building a strong home/school connection is critical in the education of our children. Our goal is to work with families to teach and model appropriate and respectful interactions for our students. Every child will understand how to communicate effectively and build positive relationships with the greater school community. Teachers, parents and caregivers model the way for our students to become responsible, respectful and compassionate children. Our mission is to create a joyful learning environment that empowers our students. We provide children with the 3 Rs: a Rigorous and Relevant curriculum and positive, caring Relationships.
We respect and value diversity. Our curriculum is culturally relevant and inclusive. It is grounded in students' experiences and is relevant in the world of our children. The schoolwide TRIBES program serves as the foundation for our discipline plan and the Lakeshore Stars Recognition program. The principal, teachers, and staff collaborate to plan and reflect on instruction to consistently improve teaching practices. Grade level curriculum is aligned with the State standards and is taught using differentiated instruction to meet individual needs. Specifically selected student work is compiled and used for their classroom portfolios. We share and pass along student portfolios from each grade level as a developmental "snapshot" to ensure ongoing learning. Our visual and performing arts and garden program supports the development of the whole child. We create a learning environment that is safe, nurturing, and productive which allows every child to reach his/her maximum potential.
