Lake Forest Charter School’s mission is to provide a nurturing environment for children in grades K-8 that facilitates maximum student achievement through a rigorous, accelerated academic program which incorporates visual, cultural and creative arts, and will ultimately enhance each student’s ability to become a global, contributing citizen.
Lake Forest is known as the Beacon of New Orleans East and has been instrumental in the rebuilding of our community. Lake Forest Elementary Charter School serves students in grades K – 8, along with a Pre-K gifted program. Lake Forest Elementary Charter School’s focal point is high student achievement, by offering a program that includes research-based curriculum and data driven instruction. With consistent, instructional monitoring and management by all Eagle Leaders, we expect to inspire a love and respect for learning at a high level. There is accountability at all levels, individual as well as organizational. Our mascot – the bald Eagle – is more than just a symbol to our staff, student body, and parents. We like to refer to our domain as the “Eagle’s Nest,” which provides a familial and safe haven. Eagles always soar alone and never give up. Through our guidance, nurturing, hard work,and determination of our Eagle Leaders, we desire to instill all the attributes for our students to become global, productive citizens.
