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!
Leon County schools are schools in Tallahassee that care about their student's successes. They offer volunteer programs, financial aid programs, and tutoring programs to get their students the best educational needs possible. The requirements are very high because they want their students to succeed leaving high school to go to college. They have extraordinary advice like what colleges are looking for and what us students need to do to get in competitive schools like GPA and SAT requirements need to be good. Leon County schools motivate their students to succeed in all levels and they protect us from harm's way. We do drills at school when it comes to emergencies like natural disasters and threats. My school is actually a sheltered school just in case of tornadoes and hurricanes. Leon County schools are the best schools for children's successes in all aspects of a child's life.
