I disagree with the parent who says the school is insular. It certainly isn't insular for kids who all seem to find their niche. I am not looking for all of my child's classmates to be her best buddies. The teachers and principal are fabulous at this school.
It is so much fun going to Lake Bluff every school day. I am a 6th grader at Lake Bluff and have been going to Lake Bluff since K4. My Uncle, Aunt, Father,and older brother have all gone to Lake Bluff and LOVED IT! This year our school got 50 new students and we had a meeting to make sure everyone was welcomed there. We also have Character Education Assemblys. If you are diciding what school to go to I reccomend Lake Bluff!
My daughters had a great year (2005-06). The academic program as well as music and art was great and my kids carry very fond memories of its teachers and principal Dr Juffer.
My daughters both went from K4-6th at Lake Bluff elementary and I can honestly say the school was extraordinary. The teachers were talented and devoted; Dr. Kirk Juffer is unique in his personal interest in each student. The atmosphere is nurturing but doesn't stifle wholesome competition; the school spirit is such that the parents are involved in school activities to a remarkable degree. The academics were challenging, but the teachers did not lose sight of the fact that some students needed boosts over adademic hurdles, and this was done in a very positive way. A really examplary school; we were fortunate to find it.
The Principle is wonderful with each child, he is hands on, knows what is going on with each of the children. Dr Kirk Juffers is sincere, tactful and really work hard to make the kids, their families and the teachers into a community family. He is a great man, teacher and example as well as motivator for our kids to achieve their best while absolutely enjoying it and being responsible.
I wish there were sports activities in Shorewood, meaning inter school athletics, but sadly there is not. Overall the school is wonderful and in a wonderful area.
