Lake Forest is located 30 miles north of Chicago. Despite a few contradictions, it is truly the third wealthiest town in the United States. Many surrounding towns compete to be the best of the north shore, but Kenilworth
is the only the nearby town that tops LF's affluency. People on the north shore stereotype people in lake forest as snotty drug addicts who would never make it at New Trier
. NT is by far one of the best public high schools in the country but LF's two high schools are almost equivalent. LFHS
is possibly the most beautiful public high school in the country and has been gaining testing strength almost outranking NT. LFA
is the only coed boarding school in the Chicago-land area and is highly regarded as one of the world's best schools, even passing NT. The problem with drugs is limited. Although the bitchy reputation can sometimes be portrayed most of the residents are polite, considerate and appreciative of what they have. The designer clothes that are said to fill their closets are mixed in with things found at Target.
Lake Forest is a great place.
