Welcome, Shorians!

Lake Shore High School's mission is to ensure the lifelong academic, social, and career development of all students in becoming responsible and valued citizens.  We do this through innovative teaching techniques in all classes, collaboration, integrated technology, and rigorous academics, including college-level, Advanced Placement, and Career Technical Education courses.  We encourage all students to become involved in the school culture through athletics, our multiple student-led organizations, and school spirit activities. 

Lake Shore High School is a great place to create positive memories, learn, grow, and prepare for your future…wherever that may lead you. 

This is #ShorianPride.

Empowered to Take Action Against Bullying

At the 2018 Community Conversation on Bullying which took place at the Oakland Schools Events Center, Lake Shore was empowered to take action and raise the volume on the topic of bullying and social labeling.

We engaged, listened, learned, and networked with keynote speakers Judge Victoria Valentine of the Oakland County Circuit, Dr. Agustin Arbulu, Director of the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, and Reggie Bullock of the Detroit Pistons. They spoke about the ramifications of bullying on young people, bullying as a civil rights issue, and how bullying and violence has directly effected them.

‪It was a very important day. We were born to love, not hate. ‬Student representatives Karli Bissell, Rachel Geml, Alexis Gibson, and Kara Wolfbauer attended student sessions about positive support programs in schools, mental health check-ins, and overcoming adversity. Kara learned that anyone can help prevent someone from committing suicide. She said, “I knew I could be there to support them and find them help, but I didn’t know until now that I can be the one to change their mind. I learned how to be their difference.” We are fortunate to have our 4 student representatives attend this important conference and look forward to working with them to combat bullying.

Defeat the Label

Welcome National Honor Society Inductees

Forty-three Juniors and Seniors were inducted into National Honor Society at last night’s ceremony. Being a member of this elite organization demonstrates the student’s commitment to excellence. New inductees were evaluated based on National Guidelines and conveyed by sharing evidence of scholarship, leadership, service, and character in professional portfolios with Lake Shore High School teaching staff. Because success can often be a result of parent support, they also delivered a letter they wrote to their parents thanking them for their guidance. Congratulations on this important accomplishment and we encourage you to take advantage of opportunities such as events, scholarships, and this new network filled with likeminded individuals.

The National Honor Society is a nationwide organization for high school students in the United States and outlying territories, which consists of many chapters in high schools. Selection is based on four criteria: scholarship, leadership, service, and character.


Division I Performance

Seventy-five Lake Shore students participated in the MSBOA Marching Festival at L’Anse Creuse High School North and received a Division I rating, ranked Division I for the past 14 years.

MSBOA Marching Bands perform a show and are judged in three categories Music, Marching and General Effect. Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association has specific criteria and rubrics for the adjudication. A Band must receive a final rating in two of the three categories to receive an overall rating of Division I.


Chinese Exchange Program

Please welcome our 71 Chinese exchange students, all in 11th grade.

Lake Shore signed a 20-year agreement in 2011 to continue and grow a Chinese exchange student program, upgrading the Taylor building the same year. The dorm accommodates 120 students and staff, and offers classrooms with technology, a Wi-Fi network and a gym.
