Lakeside School is a private school for grades five through twelve located in the Haller Lake neighborhood at the north city limits of Seattle, Washington, USA. It was founded in 1914 by Frank Moran as the Moran School on Bainbridge Island. In 1919, it moved to the waterfront Denny-Blaine neighborhood of Seattle and became the Moran-Lakeside School. In 1923 it moved to the present site of the Bush School in Washington Park and changed its name to the Lakeside Day School for Younger Boys soon thereafter. A few years later, Lakeside moved to its present location. It became coeducational upon merger with St. Nicholas, a Capitol Hill girls' school, in 1971. The current campus is notable among West Coast schools for its East Coast feel, with its sprawling grassy areas, broadleaf trees, and classic brick buildings.
