Ledyard School District Reviews
Our 3 girls attended Ledyard Public Schools from 2001-2016. Our family was greatly blessed by many wonderful teachers, paraprofessionals. Two daughters participated in swimming and one in fencing at the high school level. The coaches and parents provided good support and built team morale. Ledyard High School is well known for its music programs, diverse choruses, instrumental music, and drama programs. Ledyard HS has a variety of clubs with many opportunities for community service. We made many friends as a room parent, library volunteer, and sports mom.
The teachers were approachable and available for extra help. I felt like the course offerings were varied and provided me with a strong education.
Ledyard high school played a vital role in determining my future for success. Ledyard high has great counselors that have the ability to determine students interests and strengths to match to a college.
Active, participating parents & dedicated teachers provide students with superb overall support; diversity of extracurriculars build character, leadership, teamwork, community involvement & academic success - variety provides something for everyone in diverse student body. Athletic director inspires coaches to motivate and support all-around student athletes; Music program inspires students to seek excellence in all areas & community to support them; Academic options include a vigorous offering of AP classes, agriscience school and STEM curriculum from middle school on and courses that well prepare students for not only college but also career searches in and outside college. High school principal is superb leader who inspires both teachers and students. A major facilities upgrade of elementary and middle school to make is a real plus. Sixth grades have been added to the middle school to enhance offerings to them. My children have flourished in this school district environment .
Ledyard is very welcoming and friendly. They offer many clubs and activities that anyone can join or try out for. They push for excellence and bring out the best in you.
LHS is nice, but if there's a bullying problem, they don't help out. They complain that none of their students go to the administration for help, yet when you reach out to them finally asking for help, they don't!
I had three girls attend Ledyard Public Schools from 2001-2016. Overall they were blessed with great teachers, good libraries, and great school spirit. Two girls did swim and one fencing for 4 years at Ledyard High School (LHS). Sarah was in chorus and Spanish classes. We saw many parents at Open House, Parent-Teacher conferences, and sporting events. Bekah with other alumni cheered on the fencing team when home from college. LHS has a good variety of sports, music (choral and instruments groups), and many clubs with volunteer opportunities. The guidance dept. helped promote college scholarships. Bekah graduated in 2016; awarded 5 scholarships for college. She is doing well in her freshman year at Gordon College.
This school has a friendly atmosphere from the students to the staff. The academics offered prepares my soon to be college student for the next chapter in life. She has enjoyed herself the years she has attended.
It is a great school, and the teachers are always available for helping their students. Academics is a priority, and Ledyard is known for challenging their students. The school does a great job to ready students for life after high school.
