Principal’s Message


  • Thank you for taking the time to learn more about Lake View and the innovative educational program. Lake View officially became a STEAM (Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-Math) school during the 2016-2017 school year. With a fully integrated STEAM curriculum during the entire school day, students are immersed in a unique educational experience. We believe that our children must be adequately prepared to meet the opportunities and demands of the 21st century workforce. Preparing the children now for collaboration, innovation and experimentation is the key to nurturing our children to be ready for an ever-changing world.
