LEUSD is very special. They have the most caring and dedicated staff. The music programs in their schools are absolutely amazing. Most importantly, they take student well-being seriously. From the way they keep their schools clean to all the steps they take to protect their students and staff. I really enjoyed studying here with all of their outstanding teachers!

Most people who I have encountered are very friendly and are passionate about making a successful and positive education possible especially for students who come from a low income family background. There are great resources available to help out working parents and their children such as extracurricular after school activities. Many educators and faculty have made a positive impact in students lives and have been patient enough to teach them valuable things inside and outside of a classroom environment. Teachers, at all levels, have encouraged students to continue their education and excelling because it can lead them to a stable future. The diversity within the district allowed people to be comfortable. My only critique is that there needs to be a little more opportunity for students who come from parents that don’t speak English. There should be a program that helps parents connect to schools. Maybe have more interpreters or meetings for non English speaking parents.
Great, hard working staff that seek to give students a multitude of options after graduation. They also understand that with high expectations, high levels of support are required and are constantly looking for ways to offer the best education possible. I love this school district!
