    We love Lakehill! My son has very small classes and gets a lot of one to one time with his teachers. He can play any sport he likes, he plays soccer, runs track and cross country. They have done a very good job with online learning for the past couple of months. Since they have small classes and 2 campuses, they are hopeful to return to in person class in the fall. The college counselor at Lakehill is very good and gets them in front of so many colleges. The food is "pretty good" in my child's opinion. I send a lunch with him when possible. They are hiring a school nurse for this next year because of the corona virus. He will hopefully be taking the Peru trip next spring break with is Spanish class and he is very excited about that. The teachers at this school genuinely care about the kids and do everything they can to help them learn. I love the size of the school, it is easy for me to get to know other parents. All of the parents I have met are involved in the school.

    My daughter is getting ready to start her 7th year at Lakehill, and we can’t say enough good things about her experience at the school so far. She continually gets support from the teachers (and they’re available for my questions as well), the work is challenging without being “busy work” to just make it seem difficult. The teachers and administrators get to know the students and pay attention to their needs, and they notice if they’re struggling with a particular concept. They also pay attention to their social cues, and know that sometimes with pre-teens (where we are), a couple of questions to make sure things are ok are in order. It’s a fantastic school community, with parents and alumni who really believe in the mission. Our daughter loves it here, and so do her parents!
    Due to its small environment, Lakehill allowed me to grow in many different ways as a student, and as a person. I have close relationships with the teachers and through those relationships, have grown more comfortable as a young adult in terms of communication and work ethic. Each teacher at this school has a passion for each subject they teach. The school has such a strong sense of community. Success is almost calling to students and teachers daily. Every day, you can grow, you can try new things, you can become a better learner. The school has pushed me academically and as aforementioned as a person. With the ability to participate in any sport, club, or extracurricular, Lakehill has provided me many opportunities to take part in activities that may be provided or as accepting at a larger school.
