Our main reason for leaving Chicago was to get into a good school district for our eldest son who would be entering kindergarten. We are very please with our choice of Lake Villa. Our son also loves the school and most of all his teacher, Mrs. Monson. I was very happy to hear him say, 'I love school' ...  Read more

Thompson has a terrific staff of dedicated teachers. The principal knows everyone of her students personally. Considering the large enrollment at the school this is quite an accomplishment and a testiment to her dedication. Most of the teachers are equally involved with the students in spite of the ...  Read more
