Principal Rodney Ivey

Welcome to Lakeside Junior High School! At LJH we believe in educating the whole child. Therefore, in addition to our rigorous and engaging academics, we offer robust extracurricular opportunities through sports, fine arts, clubs, and activities programs. We promote a positive and productive learning environment. Our most sacred task is providing for all of our students a deeply engaging and relevant education that will prepare them for any future they choose!   

We believe that parent involvement in their child’s education is one of the most important factors for success. We believe in building strong relationships between the school and home- don’t hesitate to reach out to the school if we can help you in any way!

I am so honored to be a part of this amazing team! It has been said that learning is a journey, not a destination. Together, we are working hard together to provide an incredible learning journey for our students!

Go Gators!
