Board of Trustees

Lakeside School, a nonprofit corporation organized for educational purposes and chartered in the state of Washington, is under the direction of a board of trustees. Trustees come from many different walks of life — corporations, charitable organizations, education, law, medicine, finance, government, and community service — and volunteer their expertise, energy, and time to the school.

The Lakeside School Board of Trustees is responsible for working with the school’s administration to develop policies and make essential decisions by which the school is governed and guided.
