Student Voices

I enjoy going on the bus. The drivers and the people on the bus are always really nice, and just generally it’s a fun atmosphere. It can be a fun time to socialize.– Gracie L. '21

Middle School

Students and families travel to and from Lakeside Middle School in multiple ways, including Lakeside’s custom bus program, walking, biking, carpooling, and getting dropped off and picked up. The Middle School library and dining room open at 7:30 a.m. for students who arrive early, and breakfast is available for purchase.

Lakeside’s custom bus program is a partnership with University Prep and Evergreen schools. We contract with King County Metro to provide specially designed custom bus routes for our students. Families can register for semester or yearlong passes. Students in the custom bus program receive an unlimited use ORCA pass which can be used on the custom bus and anywhere else ORCA is accepted—including Metro, Sound Transit, or Community Transit—any day of the week. Visit the transportation page to learn more and view routes.

After-school activities—including clubs, athletics, music lessons, and tutoring—keep many Middle School students engaged on campus through the late afternoon. The library study hall is the hub of after-school student life; students are supervised there until pick-up or 6 p.m. Two evening activity buses—one Eastside and one Westside—depart Lakeside Middle School around 6 p.m.
