Our Mission

Lake Shore Public Schools provides an exceptional education for all 3,516 students in a safe and nurturing environment.  Our students are empowered to excel in an evolving global society, supported by the collaborative effort of staff, families, and community. 

From preschool through our graduating seniors, Lake Shore students are a part of a strong school system that works hard every day for the benefit of our students. Our guiding principles, Inspiration, Innovation, and Celebration, are woven into the fabric of everything we do.    

Lake Shore offers accelerated learning opportunities starting in elementary school. Students consistently have strong test scores, and teachers utilize the latest technology to track individual student progress throughout the school year. The district currently offers foreign language starting in Kindergarten. Elementary students enjoy daily enrichment opportunities and a full calendar of extracurricular activities.  Our middle and high schools are home to award winning athletics and fine and performing art programs. Lake Shore offers dual enrollment and early college opportunities for students free of charge.

Macomb County families seeking a quality education for the preschool-11th grade students are invited to apply through our Schools of Choice program, but it is currently closed at this time.

Think Interactive Promotes Stand Up, Speak Out

The entire Kennedy Middle School student body, all 760 students, participated in an interactive, game-based quiz promoting the power of being an upstander inside and outside of the classroom. KMS actively promotes the idea of Stand Up and Speak Out with its numerous anti bullying programs already in place including OK2Say, Heroes Club, Upstander Program, and Challenge Day. In addition to these preestablished programs, KMS invited Think Interactive to this morning’s assembly to promote this powerful message addressing safety in schools in an approachable way.

Principal Pat Donohue shared, “I wanted to welcome an interactive, proactive approach for our students that would create a comfortable environment and open communication channels across the school.” Tim John, creator of Think Interactive, reaches 26 states with his motivating, entertaining messages.

A Win Dedicated to St. Baldrick's

It was a win shared by everyone during Shorian Week, a week dedicated to St. Baldrick’s and all kids battling cancer.

Honorary captain for Friday’s football game, Matthew Nyenhuis, is just 2 years old and battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia. He has gone through numerous treatments since diagnosis this past November. A Shorian is brave, strong, and kind; We knew that by outfitting Matthew with our jersey, he may feel those traits both inside and outside.

Congratulations to our entire football team for securing another victory with a final score of 58-14.

The Rodgers Track

Rodgers Elementary held a ribbon cutting ceremony on September 14 to officially open the track to the school and community. The Parent/Teacher Committee raised over $35,000 to install it!

Most of that was raised at our Spirit Walk last year by our generous Rodgers families. Some of it was surplus money that had been in our account for a few years. According to Parent-Teacher Club President Shannon Snarski, “We wanted to put the money towards something that every student and even our community could enjoy!”


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.

Highly Effective Students

Rodgers Elementary's staff identified students who exhibited Steven Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. We can choose how to respond in every situation and are so fortunate to have many students that model these important lessons.

We are the Difference

We are the difference at Lake Shore Public Schools. During the District’s Welcome Back Convocation, all 550 employees signed the “I am the Difference” banner, enjoyed the popular omelette station and other breakfast items, visited with colleagues, and listened to keynote speakers tailoring their messages to highlight our Vision and Values of Inspiration, Innovation, and Celebration. Shannon Ketelhut, President of the Lake Shore Board of Education, encouraged the staff to push past the barriers of our own comfort zones. She shared, “Challenge yourself to do things that you want to do. Feel safe to try an adventure.” Her message was fitting for both staff and students.


Note: Each school (LSHS, Kennedy, Masonic, Rodgers, Violet) has a building-specific Events Calendar.


At Lake Shore, school safety is a high priority and promote resources that help us to accomplish that goal. OK2Say encourages confidential tips on criminal activities or potential harm directed at students, school employees, or schools.
