I had a wonderful experience at Leaders High School. All throughout the four years of high school, I had the opportunity to call my school and friends, my home and family instead. One of the many features of this school was Crew. Crew is similar to what school would like to say homeroom but, it takes the next step further. Crew is a bunch of students and one Crew teacher that stays together for the four years of school. We bond with each other, learn about college together, have potluck and act as a family. This is also all possible because of the teachers. These teachers show that they care for us and always pushes us to do the extra mile. They want us to do good and most of all, they support us. The teachers helped my friends and I to create the Anime/Comic Book club, helped find internships based on the career I want(film), stayed back after school to help me with work I didn't understand and my peers and friends were right there, by my side, to keep moving forward.

It’s my senior year in Leaders High School. When I entered this school I was an immigrant and I knew a little English. Teachers inspired me to learn the language amd their support system was great. Also different sports teams such as volleyball and cheerleading helped as well. Some changes I would like to see in my school would be to open more clubs about adult life. Seniors who are graduating are learning a lot in school but we are not really prepared for real life experience, so it would be nice if we had a club like that.
I am a senior student and I am here since freshman year. I changed several school but when I came to leaders high school in my opinion this is the best school in the world. The reason behind this is that all the teachers have very unique way of teaching. The lectures are never boring. We learn by getting entertain in this school for example the activities teachers provide, the field trips, Socratic seminars, games, jeopardy, and round tables. I always recommend this school to my neighbors who are in 8th grade and are looking for a best high school. This school is best for finding a good college. This is a small school with lots of opportunities and have taught me of how to get out of my comfort zone. The thing I would want to change is to have our own building instead of sharing with other school but I want the same amount of students and same type of education standards.
