Lake Forest School District Reviews

Lake Foreat is a school I would recommend for any Delaware student. The high school is a great size, not being too small or large. The student body is diverse and allows for classmates to expose themselves to different cultures. Teachers and staff treat their students with respect and a warm attitude. At Lake Forest High School students can expect many opportunities to learn, socialize, and realize their full potential.

I’ve been in Lake Forest since my seventh grade yeat and I feel like the older i got, the less I liked the school. I feel like the administration will run into one issue and let that rule any decision made from further on. Such as, kids with disciplinary issues who are seen as a risk so we just don’t do field trips in all. That’s unfair because there are many kids who earned to have a day of fun and relief, I’m not saying it’s necessary for someone to be awarded when doing well but it’s nice.
I am now a Senior at this High School. I really don't like our school as a whole. It is better than most schools in Delaware, but this school could be way better in my opinion. The teachers are sometimes rude and aren't very good at teaching. There is a dress code implemented which to me is ridiculous. The sports are average, but that's all the school really cares about (just football and track though).
