Lakeview Middle School was once the site of a California Indian village and burial grounds. It is nestled at the foot of the coastal mountains at the edge of the Pajaro Valley. The southern boundary of Lakeview Middle School is formed by the confluence of the Corralitos and Salsipuedes Creeks as they meander and drain into the Pajaro River. Several small lakes encircle the northern edge of the campus with both Kelly Lake and College Lake providing prominent views from the campus. The Pajaro Valley Unified School District purchased a twenty-three acre parcel from the Salesian Society in August of 1991, acquired State approval in 1993 and the school was actually built in 1994. A committee of parents, students, teachers and community members was involved in naming the school. Seventy-two names were submitted and the final outcome was Lakeview Middle School. The school serves students in grades six through eight.
