Lake Forest High School – Lake Forest, IL


I have very mixed feelings about high school as I’m sure many of us do. I was very lucky to have the opportunity to go to my high school. It is highly ranked and very competitive in most everything for a public school. The building itself is undoubtedly beautiful and full of top of the line technologies and innovations.


Over the years, my high school has undergone multiple renovations. One of which was completed just before I graduated middle school. One of the most obtrusive attributes of this remodel is what we called “the cube” or “the apple store”. It was apparently the “only way” to connect the styles that were already built.


From the inside, the addition is stunning but the outside is a whole different can of worms. Many pictures on google crop the new edition out. The addition served to create a safer, easier way to move around the school (in response to the Columbine shootings and others like it). It is used as a senior study hall and lunch commons.


The renovations included changing the old cafeteria into a two story library which is equally as stunning as the rest of the renovations. Even though I’d like to hide the new editions from the outside, they were well worth the design and upgrades on the inside.
