Welcome to Lakeshore
Located across the street from beautiful Lake Merced in San Francisco. Lakeshore Elementary is an ethnically and economically diverse urban school and is committed to providing children with a firm educational and social foundation.
Education through Experience
Lakeshore Elementary provides a wide variety of enrichment activities and a nurturing and joyful community, where teachers and parents work together to create a meaningful education and enhance academic achievements. Lakeshore students learn through doing – experiencing the science first hand, increasing their curiosity and retention of the concepts.
