Why a PK-8 School?

Clinical psychologist and New York Times best-selling author Michael Thompson supports this study in his book Best Friends, Worst Enemies: Understanding the Social Lives of Children, stating, "If I could design psychologically safe schools, every elementary school in America would go from K through grade 8 and would be no larger than 400 children." As an Age 2 through Grade 8 school of approximately 400 students, Lake Forest Country Day School provides many advantages beyond academic rigor: students experience fewer transitions, they develop long-term relationships with teachers and other students, and there is an opportunity for cross-age tutoring, role modeling, and a wide range of leadership opportunities under one roof.
