Leon High School is a diverse environment that can take you far. Every teacher I’ve had has touched my life and if you need extra help there are many ways to get help in academics. You can open your own clubs, and participate in many others including honor societies. I love everything about Leon High School, being alumni from there will also make all the difference. The grand ole school on the Hill has a lot of history and character. Leon puts on many events including rocktoberfest, fight cancer week, positively post it , and so much more! The school radiates positivity and excellence.

I can speak for Chiles High School specifically, but all of Leon County Schools are amazing. The classes, students, athletics, teachers, and atmosphere are very conducive to learning and bettering ourselves. Chiles High School (only because I attend this specific school) has a great class selection and staff to match them. Two thumbs up!
I like the different educational activities that we have.Leon County Schools is an above average, public school district located in Tallahassee, FL. It has 33,681 students in grades PK, K-12 with a student-teacher ratio of 15 to 1. According to state test experience at Leon county school shad its high and lows. I learned a lot about my self over the years and the importance of education. I can say the food was terrible and 9 times out of ten not authentic. But I loved the teachers that made lessons hands on and creative. It inspired me to learn and read more. I've joined the marching bands auxiliary over the years in high school. In middle school I joined the dance team. In elementary I loved art and music class. I wish it was more college prep class available and dual enrollment as well. Also better equipment such as technology as well.
