Bond Updates

Our summer construction wave has produced new and improved schools and grounds. We have completed or broke ground on major infrastructure renovations, such as roofing, windows, HVAC and technology upgrades. New construction projects (Lake Shore High School, Masonic Heights Elementary and North Lake High School, Violet Elementary and Taylor) include sustainability features, helping us maximize life cycles. Thank you, Lake Shore Community, for passing a $35 million Safety, Security, and Technology bond back in 2016.  


Points of Pride

During the 2017-18 school year, there have been many reminders of what Lake Shore Public Schools stands for. Please enjoy our Points of Pride slideshow, a collection of reasons why Lake Shore is our home.

Our Mission

Lake Shore Public Schools provides an exceptional education for all 3,516 students in a safe and nurturing environment.  Our students are empowered to excel in an evolving global society, supported by the collaborative effort of staff, families, and community. 

From preschool through our graduating seniors, Lake Shore students are a part of a strong school system that works hard every day for the benefit of our students. Our guiding principles, Inspiration, Innovation, and Celebration, are woven into the fabric of everything we do.    

Lake Shore offers accelerated learning opportunities starting in elementary school. Students consistently have strong test scores, and teachers utilize the latest technology to track individual student progress throughout the school year. The district currently offers foreign language starting in Kindergarten. Elementary students enjoy daily enrichment opportunities and a full calendar of extracurricular activities.  Our middle and high schools are home to award winning athletics and fine and performing art programs. Lake Shore offers dual enrollment and early college opportunities for students free of charge.

Macomb County families seeking a quality education for the preschool-11th grade students are invited to apply through our Schools of Choice program.

Kindergarten Graduations 

Lake Shore celebrated our students’ early milestones at Kindergarten Graduations. Don’t blink. These imaginative, carefree souls will soon walk across the stage to receive their high school diploma.

We have watched you learn and grow, changing from day to day. We are excited to see your progression as you continue to move forward. Congratulations to the Class of 2030! Keep dreaming about becoming a real life superhero or princess and conquering this world with your mighty lego creations.

Class of 2018 Graduates

The 95th annual Commencement Ceremony was a day of celebration. Thank you, Class of 2018, for representing the traits of resilience, integrity, empathy, creativity, resourcefulness, curiosity, and humbleness. This is your day to pause and reflect on your educational journey. 

Everyone always told us that nothing is perfect, but we believe fairytales exist. In this story, and on this day, everyone receives their diploma. In addition, this class was awarded over $5.5 million in scholarships! 

The Senior Video and Graduation DVDs are finished and ready for pick up for those that preordered. If you did not preorder but you still want to purchase a copy it is $5 for the Senior Memory video and $15 for the Graduation Ceremony. These can be picked up and paid for in the main office. 

Berenice Abbott said, "Photography can only represent the present. Once photographed, the subject becomes part of the past." The past looks beautiful in every way, but a Shorian future is even more promising. Thank you, Stewart Fine Portraits, for taking and sharing our graduation photos.

Graduation Selfie

Top Ten 

It is with great pleasure and pride that Lake Shore High School announces its Top Ten for the graduating Class of 2018. Their hard work and commitment continuously shines through them.

In our Valedictorian Tyler Knight’s graduation speech, he pointed out that people do not all succeed in the same way. Being named Top Ten is an honor that warrants recognition, but we believe all 320 graduates are successful. Tyler says, “A large part of high school was learning more about who you are as a person, and how you best succeed. This could be in the form of how we best learn, how to overcome difficult situations, or where we set our standards for ourselves. Everyone is bright in their own way.” Lake Shore agrees with Tyler’s belief that every Shorian is intelligent, and we are excited to watch this class continue to change the world for the better. 

Top Ten

MOCI Graduation

Eleven students from the Class of 2018 graduated from the MOCI Special Education program. After our Band played Pomp and Circumstance, students received individual recognition from their senior mentors, spoke about their own favorite memories, watched a slideshow highlighting the year’s achievements, and were officially declared graduates with the moving of the tassel from right to left. Students looked beautiful, adorned in their graduation regalia, and celebrated this achievement with friends, family, cake, and a dance party!


Note: Each school (LSHS, Kennedy, Masonic, Rodgers, Violet) has a building-specific Events Calendar.
