Despite being a relatively new school and a smaller community, Lead Southeast (the most recent name of the school) still tries its best to keep its students college-ready. Since Lead Southeast is still relatively small compared to other high schools, students can form much closer connections with their fellow teachers and faculty. The smaller community helps in building a comfortable, closely-knit environment with excellent diversity - a haven for students of any race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, or gender.
Lead Southeast may provide an experience much different than a typical high would, but it's nonetheless made up for by staff's strong, dedicated focus on its students' success.

The school is very good and overall centered on education. The teachers enjoy their jobs and want every student to succeed in their own way. Lead is split into a middle school and high school. There are 3 buildings, 6 floors in total, and there is a decent gym building in the back parking lot. There are many students in this one space and it feels cramped at time. The school utilizes technology and online programs to support student learning. There aren't many sports hosted by the school, but it does have many partnerships. I have been a part of the Lead network for 6 years now, it is the best around.
I have been at the Lead Southeast schools since my 6th-grade year. I am currently part of the first graduating class in their high school. I think the thing I like most about is its small size and the way they care about students by being strict but lenient. The teachers stay with the school year after year and your grade is like a distant family after a few years. Teachers take the time to pay attention to your individual struggles and, though the behavioral system annoys some, it has good intentions to help students improve. Lastly, the fact that the school is young allows students to have more of a voice and ability. Students can start their own clubs, talk straight to the principle, and have an overall ability to influence things.
