Leola School District Reviews

2 reviews
Within the Leola School, the classes range from 7 to 17 which allows teachers to focus on individual students who need help. With our school having a "Nice" system, it rewards students for showing respect and responsibility. With this system it helps create friends and prevents bullying. While many of our teachers are very good at what they do one teacher (the math teacher) is exceptional in what she does and is the reason why many of recent alumni of the school are going into engineering. The music program is also exceptional and allows all students a cheap way of participating in music with letting students have used instruments. The music teacher also brings many opportunities to students, like All-State Chorus or the National Anthem. One thing i wish my school did better is how to handle new students. Specifically, when a student comes to this school but has taken different classes that don't fit in with the required classes of our school.

I like the small class sizes and how you know everybody throughout the whole school. I would like to see fair treatment of students by everyone in the school.
