    My oldest son had been to 7 schools from kindergarten through the end of second grade. Needless to say by the time he hit Lake Forest he needed a LOT of help. The faculty and staff at LFE have been SUPERB in helping him grow in knowlege wisdom social ability and emotional maturity. I can't say enough good things about this school especially the Resource and Speech programs. Never in 6 other schools did a set of educators take as much care of my son as the LFE group has and our family considers ourselves SO lucky to have moved into their neighborhood. Now that my younger son attends school there is no place I'd rather he attended than Lake Fores.

    I have two children at Lake Forest and we absolutely love it! Everyone there is super nice and they welcome the Good News Club there every week. I wouldn't want my kids to go anywhere else!

    My son was in Mrs. Hill's first grade class last year and she is an excellent teacher and my son learned so much. The school is also beautiful and well maintained.
