The school is unorganized. There is little in the way of communication between parents and teachers. My 2nd child attending here did the same as my first. Went into this school with an academic honors rating and by 7th grade had fallen. The children are not challenged and the facilities are in very poor condition

I drive my child ten miles each way just to attend Lake Forest. A WONDERFUL SCHOOL WITH ENTHUSIASTIC AND GREAT TEACHERS WHO REALLY CARE ABOUT THE YOUTH.

Show Choir is outstanding...has won lots of awards. Athletics are good, getting better. Girls and Boys are separated in the gym and in the cafeteria, which helps keep a grip on mischief. The teachers are wonderful! Lots of activities, administration is friendly and inviting. Highly recommended!! AAAA+++++++++
