"(I would award zero stars!)As of this writing, there are 11 reviews. SIX of them were written within a few hours, and are all 5-star! I have no doubt all SIX of these are an arranged campaign!This school is so horrible, our children got their AAs from Running Start before they got their worthless LHS diplomas. This District doesn't care one bit about academics; they are far more interested in their sports and in carrying the bottom performers while ignoring top performers.In a Board meeting, a school principal warned the School Board not to listen to parents, because ""they don't know what's best."" This school doesn''t care what parents think, and are unaccountable when they lie straight to parents' faces. When asked, the Board stated parents should expect that their children would not require remedial math when entering college. Promise broken! Estimates are, as many as 85% attending 4-year schools in WA, needed remedial math."

I have watched and been here as this school has tried to work with a less than ideal high school that is 25 or more years old. I have had two issues that I went to the administration with and it was resolved quickly and I was so happy with how they handled it. The superintendent is nothing less than passionate as many staff and teachers and other administrators are. We have a very very low turnover rate. That speaks volumes! I moved here specifically to go to this district. This is a great community that wants to keep low crime rate and well educated kids!

Lakeside does well academically and athletically. There is something for everyone, if advantages are taken from LHS, Skil-Center, and community colleges.

I love lakeside HS* very family oriented, small, 98% graduation rate & A very high rate of collage graduates. As stated in another statement* a lot of the kids choose to do running start not to get out but because they are ready! Why not graduate with a two year collage degree? Just means the schools challenged the kids & they were ready! Also if your ready for collage why not let the state pay instead of waiting two years & the kids have to pay? Smart choice to me & yes' my child did running start. LHS also has a great sports program. In one of the surveys LHS was rated 7th in the U.S. For its size as one of the highest test scores, graduation rate & collage graduate's. I did have a problem with counselers but as a parent I did my homework & figured out what was the best for my child!

We've lived in Nine Mile since our oldest began Kindergarten so our entire school experience has been the Nine Mile District. We could not be happier! From Lake Spokane Elementary to Lakeside Middle School and now Lakeside High School each one has been a wonderful experience. We have been most impressed with our districts teachers and their relation to the students. They take any problem serious when brought to their attention and have been johnny on the spot to take care of issues. School pride is always high and it's refreshing to see kids enthusiastic about their schools!

Wonderful school district with committed caring staff through all levels from elementary to high school. I would also add that I agree with another comment that the reason for high number of students doing Running Start is because of the financial savings, not because of their disdain for the school district.

I am a former student of lakeside, graduated 2012, I don't understand how people can come on here and say there are no opportunities at this school from a parents perspective... You didn't attend this school. There are opportunities everywhere, it's just a matter of motivating yourself to spend the extra time or effort to take advantage of them as a student. Not a lot of students want to do that though. The teaching staff starts prepping kids for college as freshmen with courses available, at the school, that will get you college credit. I personally got college credit for taking accounting one and two, engineering one and two, and Photoshop. That gave me 15 college credits just doing classes I probably would have taken anyway. The students definitely know that there are classes available that do this. They just would rather take the easy route and take life sports or be a teachers assistant.

I am a parent of a middle school student that has been in the district since 1st grade. I am also a high school teacher in a different school district in the area. Nine Mile School District has always had an excellent reputation in academics and extra curricula activities. The effort by the caring teachers and coaches at all grade levels is very apparent to the students and parents. This close knit community is fortunate to have high quality administrators, teachers, support staff, and athletic departments. Our family specifically chose this school district for our child based on the above average state assessment scores, school facilities and caring atmosphere of the community.

Quite literally the worst place my kids ever attended school. Do yourself a favor and don't you will regret every minute your child attends Lakeside High School.
