Education

Lakeview High School, the only high school in the city, is part of the Lakeview School District and serves 255 students in grades 9 through 12.

Numerous students from high schools in Lake County have attended college on scholarships provided in trust by pioneer Doctor Bernard Daly. Known as the Daly Fund Scholarship, the funds have helped over 1600 Lake County students to attend college. Dr. Daly was a medical doctor, rancher, banker and politician. Daly was associated with an act of frontier heroism that occurred when a fire broke out during a Christmas program at the isolated Oregon town of Silver Lake. Rancher Ed O'Farrell rode to Lakeview some 100 miles away in sub-zero temperatures to fetch Dr. Daly. The ride took 19 hours with O'Farrell stopping at ranches along the way to change horses. Dr. Daly and driver William Duncan made the return trip to Silver Lake in 13 hours using a buggy. A total of 43 people died in the fire, which was the worst fire in Oregon history. [Cooper, Forest E., "Introducing Dr. Daly", Lake County Historical Society, Maverick Publications: Bend, Oregon, 1986]
