Leechburg Area School District Reviews

Small public school that offers private school amenities such as a small teacher/student ratio, individual attention for your child and teachers that are engaged and caring. The administration consistently strives to make improvements after a period of having a rocky past administration. Our one child took honors in high school there and was well prepared for his large university where he now attends. The after school seminar program is an added free academic enrichment opportunity for students.

Leechburg High School is in a small town and is lacking compared to its neighboring school, Kiski Area High School. Leechurg does not prepare you for college. It's weakest department is science. If you plan to do anything within pharmaceutical, or biology, you will struggle. The administration is always gaining and losing staff. The special ED dept. has a lack of programs and plans for students to work on their life skills. If one were to live near this area, you would have a better experience at Kiski.
The teachers are extremely kind and genuinely care about their students. There are plenty of activities for students, clubs to join, and sports to play. There is no other place I would rather have gone to school.
