The Distinguished Educator award is a long lasting tradition at Lake Forest High School that helps to celebrate, appreciate and acknowledge the wonderful relationships our students and faculty create year after year.

Seniors are given the opportunity to nominate a teacher, counselor, dean, social worker, psychologist or administrator who has made a lasting impact on their time at LFHS. All nominations must be submitted electronically to educatoraward@lfschools.net by Friday, May 1st, 2020.

In response to the rapidly evolving situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) and guidance from public health organizations, the College Board is canceling the May 2, 2020, SAT administration. Makeup exams for the March 14 administration (scheduled March 28) are also canceled. The College Board will provide refunds to all students who are registered for May, whose March test centers were closed, or who do not receive March scores due to an irregularity. (*please see attached email which was sent to students yesterday at approx. 5pm).

Together with our member schools and colleges, we will be flexible, thoughtful, and collaborative in exploring ways to continue to support student learning and provide opportunities to test during this challenging time.

  • The College Board will be as flexible as possible to give students the best chance to show their skills and stay on the path to college.
  • We'll provide future additional SAT testing opportunities for students as soon as feasible in place of canceled administrations.
  • We have not yet canceled the June 6, 2020, SAT national administration and will continue to assess its status with the health and safety of students and educators as our top priority.
  • In the coming days, the College Board will share additional information and details directly with registered students and test centers. A webpage with regularly posted information about the impact of the virus on the SAT can be found here.

Lake Forest High School Foundation Grant Day 2020

It's been a record breaking year for grant requests. We asked students, teachers and staff to THINK BIG and they did!

As has been our tradition, Foundation Trustees roamed the halls of LFHS surprising grant recipients with the exciting news that their grants had been funded. Amidst smiling teachers and cheering students, 20 new grants totaling over $270 were awarded across 10 different curricular areas. Learn more.
