Earlier this year, our community approved the LFHS District 115 20-year bond referendum, securing a major investment that is truly foundational to the needs of our school.  As it has been for more than twenty years, the role of the LFHS Foundation continues to be to provide those wonderful innovative extras that go beyond those needs.

“The taxpayer investments are like the bowl and the ice cream and we provide the hot fudge, whip cream, sprinkles and the cherry on top of the sundae.”

~ Suzanne Sands, Immediate Past Chair, LFHS Foundation

Founded in 2002, the Lake Forest High School Foundation is dedicated to supporting, enriching and enhancing the LFHS experience for all students, teachers, and staff. We partner with District 115, the high school, parents, and the community to provide 'big school’ amenities and resources in a smaller school environment. The Foundation’s average investment in LFHS over the last 20 years is $140K per year – and more than $174K per year during the last five years! Simply put, we invest in educational excellence. 

"The Foundation allows our teachers to dream and think, What if ?” ~ Ashleigh Malec, LFHS Staff Liaison
