Message from Principal Karafiol:

Welcome to Lake View High School!

We take pride in the traditions and history that echo loudly through our hallways. Building upon our rich past, today’s Lake View is a 21st century learning environment that provides students with a first-class education and prepares them for college, careers and whatever the future may bring.

Lake View’s creative and supportive environment fosters a sense of community, innovation and personal growth for current and future Wildcats. My personal experiences  as a CPS student in a diverse, high-performing neighborhood high school, have shaped who I am today and drive me to challenge, prepare and inspire our students and staff.As one of the first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)

 Initiative High Schools in CPS, learning at Lake View goes beyond the basics by fostering critical thinking and disciplinary literacy. Whether a student enrolls in Honors, AP or dual-credit courses competes on one of our 28 sports teams, or joins a club, our offerings appeal to the broad interests of our diverse student body.  By combining rigorous academics with robust extracurricular, cultural and social experiences, we strive to provide our students with a high school experience that promotes self-confidence, minimizes stress and maximizes their potential. 

For nearly 150 years, Lake View High School has set the standard as a premier neighborhood high school: proud of our past, committed to our present and poised for our future.  

The choice is yours.
