A little bit about Lakeside...

Lakeside High School, located in Atlanta, Georgia, is part of the DeKalb County School System. LHS students have excelled in both academics and athletics since the school opened in 1965. Many awards and honors have reflected the outstanding dedication to academic and athletic excellence by the students, parents and staff. In 1985, Lakeside was honored as a State and National School of Excellence; an honor which reflects the positive relationship between the school and community.

Over 10,000 alumni have walked the halls of Lakeside High School. Currently, Lakeside has almost 1900 Vikings.

In 2005, a group of interested alumni, staff and parents recognized the need to support our community high school through financial and volunteer support. This group formed the Lakeside High School Foundation and received 501(c)(3) status in 2006. We believe that the Lakeside Foundation will serve as a means to support the school and the alumni. The board is made up of alumni, parents of current students and alumni, as well as loyal Lakeside community supporters.
