Tours/Open House/Student Shadowing

As your school of choice, we offer both parents and students several opportunities to learn more about what Lake View has to offer - inside and out. 

*NOTE: Due to school closure stemming from Covid-19 Pandemic, we are currently unable to offer school tours, open house events and student shadowing opportunities.  We hope to bring back these opportunities to visit Lake View in the coming months.  Please check back here for updates. 

Open House


LVHS holds open house events several times during each school year.  In addition to touring our historic building, open houses provide prospective students and their families with an opportunity to meet teachers, administrators and students and learn first hand about everything from academics to arts, athletics and school clubs. 

2020-21 School Tours and Open House Events: To Be Announced

Student Shadowing

LVHS is one of only a few Chicago High Schools that offer current 8th-grade students to participate in Student Shadow Days.  Shadow Days provide prospective students with an opportunity to experience life as an LVHS student and get a first-hand glimpse of the many programs and opportunities that we offer.

During Shadow Days, prospective students are paired with one of Lake View’s Student Ambassador upperclassmen. We do our best to pair students based on academic, extracurricular, and athletic interests.  

To sign up to attend a LVHS Student Shadow Day, please complete the Shadow Day Sign-Up Form (2020-2021). Once we receive your form, we will notify you of your assigned date, as well as important next steps. 

Please complete the Permission Slip before arriving for your visit.
