The mission of Lakeside School is to develop in intellectually capable young people the creative minds, healthy bodies, and ethical spirits needed to contribute wisdom, compassion, and leadership to a global society.
When students arrive at Lakeside, they come with interests of all kinds. Full of curiosity and eager to learn, they love arts and athletics, history and math. That's why we provide an encouraging environment where students are free to become their whole selves—to explore and pursue all of their interests at the same time.
Lakeside students are scholars, athletes, artists, community service volunteers, and much more. By the time they graduate, the majority of students have played a varsity sport and most have participated in our arts programs long after fulfilling their arts requirement.
At Lakeside, academic excellence and diversity go hand-in-hand. Our students find peers on campus from all walks of life. We celebrate the unique talents of our students and the range of perspectives they bring to every class.
Lakeside has 776 students in grades 5 to 12. We have 111 faculty members, 79 percent of whom have advanced degrees. The student-teacher ratio is 9 to 1 and the average class size is 16. About 47 percent of our students and 21 percent of our teachers are people of color. Our libraries hold almost 38,000 volumes and we present more than 30 arts performances every year.
Lakeside is an A-size school playing in AAA classification for most sports. We have had 135 league titles and won 71 state championships.

"Living where we do, it's hard to think that there is much else beyond the Seattle-Metropolitan limits," write Sophie L. '18 and Rocky O. '18 in the Tatler. "However, even an hour outside of Seattle can expose you to many different values, beliefs, and, put simply, worlds." Read more about their road trip here:
