    "LFE has the BEST teachers around, and the new principal has made many changes that were necessary. I love the weekly flag salutes, the new recycling program that student council students help with, and the fact that technology is a priority at LFE (there are SmartBoards in every classroom, an updated computer lab and Google ChromeBooks). Their after-school TLC program is very well-run with students' varied needs kept in mind and very kind and caring leaders. Plus, the school has a very diverse student body, and the main classroom building is very uniquely built with windows from the inside hallways and colorful student work up on the walls. The librarian is super sweet too and knows the children. Go LFE!"

    "Both of my children attend Lake Forest Elementary and are receiving a great education. My youngest is in Mrs. Fox and VT's class and I could not be happier. They have been able to get my shy youngster out of her shell and inspire confidence in her that I only dreamed of. They are dream teachers and I only wish my oldest child would have been able to experience them in first grade as well. The new principal has exceeded my expectations as well and is making changes in the school that are necessary but difficult. I respect her and know that my kids are in good hands."

    "My daughter (who was home-schooled) started Kindergarten last year (2013/14) and absolutely adores her teacher Mrs. T. Higgins. She is not the only one - all the other kids are always excited to go to school and share with parents what they did with Mrs H. As a parent, I am amazed at how upbeat, caring and firm Mrs H can be. I am not too thrilled with the size of the class (30+ students) but she and her assistants do a great job. I hope she will stay on as I have a younger son who is adamant that he will get her as HIS kindergarten teacher in the future. The principal seems very approachable and hands-on, and the events at the school are well-run with an active PTO and parent participation."

    "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."
