    "The school itself is beautiful, the facilities are great and kept very clean. It has a wide range of classes that differ in difficulty. All students are encouraged to push themselves toward academic success. With the new hybrid block schedule students are given more of an opportunity to seek help from their academic teachers in the morning, instead of just having the opportunity during school, when a lot of the time the student and teacher's schedules don't match up. The school also puts an emphasis on sports and other extracurricular activities leaving students with an overwhelming list of things to participate in after school. The school also guides it's students towards reaching higher education with counselors ready and willing to assist their students in whatever they might need for the future. Overall the school has a welcoming atmosphere along with a variety of classes, clubs, sports, and other opportunities for students to exercise and expand their academic and life skills."

    "Lake Forest is an excellent school in an affluent town. The teachers are top notch as the school is well funded. There is little diversity however and there are issues that you would expect in a school with a high percentage of "rich kids"."

    "Lake Forest High School is a great school for gaining a better education for sure. The class sizes are medium size to small, mostly in the mid teens. This class size allows for the teacher to recognize if a student needs more help. There are also many resources students could use if they need more help in a particular subject. There are many peer tutors available every period as well as time before school and every Thursday before school to meet with teachers one on one for more help. Over it is a great school with a variety of children so everyone has a chance to find other kids with many similaries."
