This is very poor school. My child was supposed to receive progress reports very 3rd, 5th,and 7th nine weeks. That was only done at the parents request.

In my opinion, I believe Lake Forest is a school that offers a positive learning environment for children. I have seen the school go through many changes in the past four years. The comments made by other parents are untrue and I feel compelled to correct them. There have only been two principals in ...  Read more
