Lakeside Academy was founded in 2001 by amalgamating two community high schools in Lachine-Bishop Whelan High School and Lachine High School. We serve a very culturally, ethnically and socioeconomically diverse population. In 2010 the school moved from only having an IB Enriched program to embracing a whole school IB philosophy.
Lakeside Academy believes students should be prepared academically and socially to be lifelong learners. Students will receive a holistic education through the IB Framework for teaching and responsible citizenship, changing future and constantly evolving world.
Student life will be enriched through a variety of social and extracurricular programs that complement and further develop skills and international IB The International Baccalaureate® aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
To this end the organization works with schools, governments and international organizations to develop challenging programmes of international education and rigorous assessment. These programmes encourage students across the world to become active, compassionate and lifelong learners who understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
