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.

This is my first year in Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, and as a transferring senior it is a difficult transition going to a new school my final year of my high school career. However, Lee’s Summit North High School has been more than helpful and welcoming. They have put together a great schedule for me that accommodates to my needs. I wouldn’t change a thing about this helpful and hospitable school district!
Coming from a country with low resources, and less opportunity to learn, I really liked about all the opportunities available to students. I was aware of those opportunities and took advantage of them, be cause I knew what I wanted. If it wasn’t for the Lee’s summit school district and their out of school programs available to juniors and seniors, I wouldn’t have graduated as a certified nurse assistant, and I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to save as much money as I have now to help me pay for part of nursing school, so I I’m really grateful for everything the school made available for students. Teachers would always go out of their ways to help students succeed and be ready for college. For everything I didn’t learn, I hold myself responsible for not studying enough, but not my teachers. I would probably say the only thing I didn’t like about the school is their food choices for students.
