Great school in a great community in a great upscale Lake Forest neighborhood. The school had some struggles a couple years ago during a change in the principal, but Dr. Norman has been able to turn things around and the school is thriving again. I've had 2 kids graduate from here, and they are top ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

Some parents think that the teachers are being hard on the students, But I think the lectures given to the kids are just and ...  Read more

My daughter was in second grade last year, and we were very pleased with the community, programs and parental involvement.

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, ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more

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 ...  Read more
