Leicester Public Schools Reviews

The school system is currently going through some "development and improvement". They've gone through a couple superintendents recently, and the Primary school alone has cycled through more than 2 principals in the past couple years. The school board had elected a college student as the board leader, which had serious repercussions in the accountability of the school administration (principals) to the school board, since there was little to no effective communication and enforcement. These things have since been on a track to improve, however they still have a lot of work to do.

Although my experience at Leicester High School has not been the greatest, it offers many different opportunities that can help students diversify their education and high school experience.
Inconsistent on terms of the quality of learning. Most teachers are great. High school should have been given a 4 star review, it prepares you for college if you actually take honors or AP classes there. middle school was terrible because the teachers didn't seem to want to help kids who were having a tough time in that phase. Middle school teachers discouraged some of my brightest peers from taking any honors classes at first going into freshman year.
