LMS - Our School

The Lakeshore Middle School building was the site of the original high school built in the late 1950s. At that time, the building housed just over 1,000 tenth, eleventh and twelfth graders until the district built a new high school, restructured grades in all buildings, and divided the middle school student population between two buildings in 1997.

In 2012 our district reconfigured our two middle schools to create a 5/6 building, and a 7/8 building.  Currently, all seventh and eighth grade students from across Grand Haven Area Public Schools attend Lakeshore Middle School.

With passage of the 2009 energy bond election, Lakeshore Middle School was completely remodeled during the summer of 2010 with new energy-efficient windows and doors, and new heating, cooling and lighting systems. Thanks to our community for their generous support!
