Lake Forest Country Day School Reviews

I’d like to share my experience as a new parent at LFCDS with a 4th grader. The community and staff welcomed my daughter with open arms before the school year began. LFCDS has a rigorous academic program. LFCDS has turned around my daughter’s educational experience from unethusiastic and frustrated to thriving and straight A’s. They know my child academically better than I do and use that to inspire her growth intellectually, socially and emotionally. The teachers here are unparalleled and truly care about the children. I come from Chicago and it is well worth the trip.

Lake Forest Country Day School has been the most amazing educational experience for my children. My daughters have attended LFCDS since they were 2 years old. Starting in the First Step program and progressing through the ECC (Early Childhood Center) they have encountered amazing and dedicated teachers and have been part of this loving community all within an incredible educational environment. From the physical space and amenities to the wonderful faculty and staff, we have nothing but positive things to say about Lake Forest Country Day School.
Lake Forest Country Day School has been amazing for my three boys. Each of them has been embraced individually for who they are and supported to help them achieve their full potential. It's warm, welcoming, diverse and inclusive and supports the whole child. Absolutely the best place for children to thrive.
