Leicester Public Schools Reviews
Teachers are highly educated and build strong relationships with students. Opportunities for AP, dual enrollment, and virtual high school allow expansion of student opportunities. Sports are great, however expansion of sporting opportunities would be better, as well as strong coaches. Little diversity however recent addition of Arabic by teacher of middle eastern descent is a step in the right direction. Food is terrible. Clean filtered water resources allow support toward clean environment. One to one computer resources integrates technology with all courses
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.
