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).

Lee’s Summit Senior High was so welcoming and adamant about the fact that acceptance is something that everyone deserves. It is basic human decency. I think that the emotional connection that the schools strive for is definitely exceeded! Something that I think that the schools in the Lee’s Summit R-VII School District can work on is the communication between counselors and students preparing for college.
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.
