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've been in the Lee's Summit R-VII School District my entire educational career and I can say it was less than satisfactory. To be fair it wasn't dangerous in the sense of gangs and it does offer a lot of IB classes but that's about as good as it gets. Unless you play sports or drastically raise academic ranking you really don't matter. Those who struggle academically or personally are swept under the rug and the only time mental health is really addressed is when a student kills themselves, and even then it is addressed with little tact. Diversity is poor, and there is far too much racism and general discrimination that is deliberately ignored. When it comes to academics there is little variety in classes and many teachers are in no way competent and do not understand or attempt to learn how to interact the age demographic they teach. Many teachers feel that it is okay to belittle their students and when students report it to administration or the district nothing is ever done.
Curriculum is tough and sometimes hard to understand. All chemistry teacher are horrible and tough to understand. Music classes are incredible! Sports are entertaining because of the Crimson Crazies but don’t expect a win.
