LAKE FOREST – When it comes to high school beauty contests, most people think about the occupants of the building not the building itself. A recent ranking by a lawn care company based in Texas and Virginia ranked U.S. high schools by the physical beauty of their campuses, and Lake Forest High School made the Top 10.
According to the lawnstarter.com, LFHS is the 8th Most Picturesque High School Campus in the U.S. And it’s the only Illinois school on the list of schools.
Other schools in the Top 10 are:
- Stadium High School, Tacoma
- George Washington High School, San Francisco
- Monument Mountain Regional High School, Great Barrington, MA
- Monument Valley High School, Oljato–Monument Valley, UT
- Mission High School, San Francisco
- American Canyon High School, American Canyon, CA
- Marysville Getchell High School, Marysville, WA
- Lake Forest High School, Lake Forest, IL
- Diamond Ranch High School, Pomona, CA
- El Paso High School, El Paso, TX
The website doesn’t say whether size of a school’s lawn was a factor in the ranking, but it does state that LFHS’s “ivy-covered façade and expansive lawn exude classic charm.”
