Lake Forest School District Reviews

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).

The school needs to stop favoring specific students. Everyone deserves equal treatment. Also, they need to improve how they hire teachers. The administration is awful. They favor certain students but when one student messes up its everyone's fault.
Lake Forest is a good district, but there is definitely room for improvement. Some of the teachers are not as knowledgeable on their subjects as they should be. Yet there are other teachers that go above and beyond, and help students and the school as much as possible. Athletics are improving with more successful teams, and the addition of new teams, such as lacrosse. The guidance counselors do their best to help students be prepared for college, but there is only two of them for 900+ students, so they have a lot to handle, and many students to take care of. My guidance counselor greatly assisted me in preparing for college, but I could tell she was stressed out since she is responsible for so many students. Discipline and bullying could be improved but for the most part they aren't that large of an issue. There are many extracurricular activities present at Lake Forest that students can be involved in. A sense of family exists in Lake Forest, because everyone supports each other.
