A Brief History of Lakeview Elementary School

Lakeview Elementary School is the "Home of the Dolphins." The school is located on Horne Avenue and is bordered by Greenwood Drive and Darren Drive, in the Cavalier Manor section of Portsmouth, VA. We take pride in our tradition of excellence in academic programs, teacher qualification, and student achievement.

Lakeview was opened in the fall of 1968. Then, the school enrollment housed students in grades pre-kindergarten through 6th. Later, it housed only pre-kindergarten through 3rd grade students for approximately 20 years. In 1996 students in grades pre-kindergarten through 5th began attending the school. By 2005, the pre-kindergarten classes were moved to another building and sixth grade was once again added to the school. The school now has an enrollment of approximately 450 students with a staff of approximately 68.

Lakeview prides itself with having strong parental support and community involvement. The school has several partnerships with churches, businesses, and sororities within the city of Portsmouth.

Lakeview has been under the leadership of eight principals over the years. Mr. John Hill served as its first principal, followed by Mrs. Marlene Randall, Mr. Isaac L. Askew, Queen E. Malone, Sonya Harrell, Dr. Camilla Ferebee, and Dr. Bernadette Smith.  The current principal is Mrs. Garyn Moody.
