    Kim Head, Principal
    I am proud to serve the students, parents, and staff as the principal of Lakeside Middle since the 2016-17 school year. I am a native of Forsyth County and a proud alumni of Chestatee Elementary, Otwell Middle, North Forsyth Junior High and Forsyth County High School. After acquiring my Bachelor of Science in Business Education from North Georgia College , I began my teaching career at South Forsyth High in 1989 when the school opened.
