    • The Distinguished Educator Award Nominations Due by May 6!

      In the fall of 2003, we lost a friend and a mentor at Lake Forest High School. Tom Wing touched the lives of many people, especially the lives of those whom he taught. After his death many of his students came forward to express their gratitude and appreciation for all that he had given of himself. Unfortunately, Tom did not have the chance to hear this praise. It is this regret that serves as the foundation for The Distinguished Educator Award, a contest that will help all of us at Lake Forest High School remember to celebrate, appreciate, and acknowledge the wonderful relationships our students and faculty create year after year.

      Nominations

      Seniors can find the nomination form here. Each form asks students to answer four questions (in essay form). Students may individually nominate an educator, or do so as a group. Seniors are asked to be as specific as possible in their answers. This is not a contest that judges writing abilities; rather, the judges will be considering the content of the answers.

    • LFHS School Day Schedule Update


      Here are the highlights of the new 2016-17 LFHS school day schedule. Please join us at one of the upcoming meetings to learn more!

      In the fall, our stakeholder groups, students, parents, faculty, staff, and community members, identified their respective areas of interest and concern regarding the daily schedule at LFHS. We thank everyone who attended our meetings and completed our survey.

      We are pleased to report that the new schedule meets our stakeholders' key areas of interest:

      • Later start time for the school day

      • Time allotted for students to take additional classes

      • Time allotted for flexible student choice

      • Time for allotted for faculty collaboration

      • Flexibility in length of instructional periods

      • Changes in the lunch experience

      • Instructional continuity and consistency


      The committee analyzed a wide-variety of school schedule models, both locally and across the nation. The committee sought to provide an optimal schedule for learning, reflective of adolescent sleep patterns, and brain development. They also considered the needs and preferences identified by stakeholders.

      Choice and Balance


      We are excited to share with you the details of the 2016-17 schedule.
