    No Leadership in this shool teachers do not care and get away with murder and the students get lost in the system if you are not on top of EVERYTHING! I wouldn't even give this school one star. If you are from DE then I suppose you'll love the school but if you are not and expect excellence for your child accountability for the teachers and dedication to teaching and communication and support from the principal then you will be extremley disappointed!! The school is horrible from the Principal to the teachers. They defination for ISS is mandating the students to CLEAN the school. Have you ever heard such a thing??!! Go to the top Superintendent and you may get results just depends on how determined you are!! Stay away if at all possible. This school is terrible!!

    I am a former student of the Lake Forest School District Class of '08. Lake Forest is one of the best school districts in Delaware. This school is one of the safest schools i have been to. I knew many other students in others school and ours seemed the most unified. There are the usual clicks but everyone never really cared everyone hanged with everyone everyone really gets along there. The teachers were more like mentors than people that are just trying to teach and leave. The teachers actually care about everyone and they show they care. I would recommend Lake Forest to everyone I know.

    The school is a very good school in most circumstances. Most Teachers are very involved and respect the students who return that respect.

    Lake Forest expects each child to reach their own 'personal best' academic level and offers a variety of courses. They instill sound values and a commitment to community service. Most of the students and staff seem to be very happy there. Everybody knows each other. It's a safe school and there is no tolerance for misbehavior. The teachers are very involved with their students and active in most afterschool activities. They are 'on the ball' with each child and notify parents when they feel a child might not be performing up to their potential. The administration from the superintendent down to the teachers welcomes parental and student input. True as a 'Spartan' it is not a fancy building but it is well-maintained and very clean. It has a great swimming pool and diving team. Excellent drama department (at least one musical per year) with great community support.

    My son graduated this school in 2002. I have nothing but praise for the teachers and staff of this school. The pricipal has an open door policy with a definite eye on the future.He cares about all his 'kids'. The teachers are not only trained and good at what they do but most are involved in the school in after school activities. They have excellent sports programs and an even better academic expectation. This school prepares students for the future with high expectations of their students and a concerned involvment from the parents. This is easily the best school in southern De. If you can excercise school choice this is the best place to send your child. For Excellence in academics community involvment emphasis on college placement this place prepares your child for a bright future. Thanks Lake for helping me to raise a Police Officer and upstanding community citizen.

    I went to Lake Forest and graduated in 1997. I thought it was a pretty good school. Most of the teachers were very good at there job meaning they actually knew how to teach and did it right. And except for a few minor problems that there are in most public schools its a good school and environment. I can't imagine that it has changed that much in seven years. So as for my review Lake Forest School District is awesome!

    this shcool has a lot of issues. Such as people have sex in class people always getting into fights and the condition of this school. The school spendes no money on the school. All of the money goes to the faculty. The school is falling apart there are walls rotting out bathrooms with no doors on the stalls. The learning level is way to low and some teachers just dont care. And the dumbest thing ever is one way hall signs. I have to walk from one end to the other and back to get to a class. So that is 2 times as much because of the signs. There are many other problems with this school and nothing is being done.
