Lakeview Is One of Ten Schools to Receive National Recognition

Lakeview Academy has been honored by FIRST® in its Inspire the Future Recognition Program. Lakeview is one of only ten schools nationwide to receive this prestigious recognition in its inaugural year. This recognition reinforces the school's dedication to fostering innovation and technological literacy among its students. It is a testament to the school’s unwavering commitment to introducing technology and robotics to students early and throughout their development. "Project-based, hands-on FIRST programs introduce students to engineering and coding in engaging, inclusive, and creative learning environments, where students work collaboratively to solve themed robotics challenges."

This year, the Mario Kart eSports team capped off an outstanding season by clinching 2nd place in the highly competitive PlayVS Easter Region against over 100 teams from Canada to Florida.
Reflecting on these achievements, technology director and robotics coach Mikhail Lovell commented, "We are immensely proud of our students' accomplishments in both eSports and robotics. These successes underscore Lakeview Academy's desire to empower today’s students with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in an ever-evolving technological landscape. We are deeply honored to be recognized by FIRST for our dedication to inspiring future innovators and problem solvers. It is especially meaningful to be part of the inaugural cohort of schools honored with this recognition."
