Lake Forest Elementary Charter School has been recognized as a National Title I Distinguished School by the National Title I Association.

The National Title I Distinguished Schools Program honors up to 100 schools across the country for exceptional student achievement in 2015. The program, in place since 1996, showcases success in two categories: exceptional student performance for two consecutive years and closing the achievement gap between student groups.

Title I is an element of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act that provides funding to school districts across the country for educating economically disadvantaged students.
