Stopher has a history of academic excellence, rich offerings for students, and deep community involvement. I am committed to ensuring every student thrives at Stopher.”

Car Rider Line
The morning car rider line is now dropping off around 15 vehicles at once. The line forms as it always has but will now circle around to the front of the building and begin dropping off students there. As the line stops for those students, the vehicles on the side of the building will be able to unload at the same time. If this new route continues to be successful, we will continue to use it.
The car rider line begins on Arnold Palmer Blvd, turns right onto Landmark Dr, crosses Aiken and proceeds along the drive. This route is for BOTH morning and afternoon! No one should be entering the Stopher drive via Aiken Rd other than our staff. Please be considerate and respectful of those parents following this procedure by joining the END of the line.
We are receiving daily complaints from Lake Forest residents. Please do not block driveways or intersections. Please do not negatively interact with residents trying to commute through their neighborhood. Thank you for being a positive representative of Stopher!
