Lakeshore truly represents the diversity of San Francisco. Located directly across the street from Lake Merced, our students and families are able to appreciate the beauty and charm of the area in an urban district. Lowell High School and San Francisco State University are our neighboring schools, with whom we work closely to expand opportunities to ensure all students are academically, socially and emotionally prepared for middle school and beyond.

Our school vision is to ensure that our students are academically, socially and emotionally prepared for middle and high school when they leave 5th grade. Our students will possess excellent communication and life skills, the ability to communicate effectively and develop positive relationships, be empowered to take on challenges in all aspects of their lives, and to be critical thinkers and problem solvers for the benefit of their communities and families.

Lakeshore families come from far and wide with a range of experience in schools, speaking many languages and needing a range of social and academic supports. We employ a full time School Social Worker and Elementary Adviser to meet social and behavioral needs of our students. In 2019-20 we will employ a full time teacher as a literacy specialist to serve the academic needs of all students.
