    "My family moved to Lake Forest a year ago and this school is by far the greatest son has ever been to, given he came from a very good school from one of the neighboring cities. Some parents think that the teachers are being hard on the students, But I think the lectures given to the kids are just and excellent. The teachers teach...and yet they still care a lot for the kids. The classrooms are big enough for the class and they have Smartboards so kids with lung condition won't have to suffer. If you want to enroll your kid to an excellent school, this is THE School."

    "Lake Forest is a great place! I have only been here for a year but so far so good. My daughter was in second grade last year, and we were very pleased with the community, programs and parental involvement. My son is entering kindergarten this year and the preparation has been great (a kinder playdate with teachers, an orientation with teachers and kids, and more)."

    "We have been at this school for a few years now. I was very happy with the Kindergarten and first grade teachers. My children were growing and progressing nicely. I never believed in requesting a teacher but after 2nd grade I highly suggest it. My child was not challenged and just stayed the course, therefore has not gained anything from that year. The parents who do participate are wonderful! Also, the interim principals have made many improvements i.e. student council and being more visible on campus. The morale as with many campuses is moderate. I would love to see more smiles around campus."

    "We moved to the area from out of state. Loved the teachers, but the principal was so out of touch with the students. Didn't acknowledge students walking in or around the campus. The rules are so strict its almost like a prison there. Class sizes are about 33+ per room and kids are crammed into rooms and cant even move around in there. Check carefully before you enroll at this school."

    "When we moved here two years ago, I loved this school. My kids were then in kindergarten and second grade. They are now in second and fourth and I'm not as impressed. The teachers are pushing way too hard and not taking their time to let the kids grasp concepts. My kids still get good grades (A's and B's) but never get positive feedback from their teachers. My youngest had extremely negative comments on her report card, yet she still holds an overall A. I was told yesterday that many of the children frequently miss recess because they can't finish all their work. The kids need that break! Both of my kids are top of their class but they are beginning to dislike school. One of my daughters also came home yesterday telling me her teacher told the class that if Mitt Romney was elected he was going to destroy the economy. Personal political opinions have no place in a elementary classes!!"
