My experience in the Lees summit school district has been nothing but pleasant. The teachers are nice and they go out of their way to make sure you understand a lesson. Almost all the teachers iv'e had since kindergarten have always looked out for my beast interest. Counselors at the high school have helped me find my carrier and encourage me to work harder every day! As far as the students that attend, there are cliques but its not hard to find a friend or two. Overall great community and school. Along with a competitive top ranked sports team (high school).

The Lee's Summit School District is outstanding! The district provides their students many opportunities to help students obtain college credit in a number of ways to help students reduce costs when actually in college. The one thing that the district could improve on is adding more counselors to help students with mental health issues, especially at the middle school and high school levels. The counselors now help more with academic issues and serve 100+ students each. Making the counselors more accessible for mental health issues would be beneficial to students, teachers and administrators.
I am a student at Summit Technology Academy. I am attending the professional nursing program. I have loved everything about this program. The teachers are wonderful, the students are involved, and this program equips you to achieve great things for your future career. We get hands on experience, the opportunity to shadow in hospitals, and we also help at health fairs in elementary and middle schools. This program is unique and so beneficial!
