I had a great time at Leander! The people are so friendly, the school spirit is great, and there are a plethora of activities and organizations to join. Academics are average, and administration is consistently approving, especially with our new principal Mr. Simpson. The counselors still need to improve, however.
Review Leander High School
Overall, I have had a really positive experience with Leander High School. I transferred from Rouse High School in order to do the IB Programme and it has enriched my learning well beyond what any AP class ever have. The teachers and environment are friendly and there never appear to be any cases of bullying or any negative thing of that nature. I'm glad to be graduating as a Class of 2017 Leander Lion!
Overall I would have to say that Leander High School is extraordinarily moderate, which I guess is something you could say about any public school. In reality, LHS is exactly just like any other public school. It's a bland, messy building with terrible food and 1,000+ smelly, crazy teens. If I had to choose one thing that I love the best about LHS though, it would be the community feeling I get here. I am involved with both Theatre and IB and in both of those programs I really connect with everyone. I know all the students and feel very comfortable around them, and the teachers are amazing and easy to talk to. Everyone seems very committed to what they are doing, which makes the overall experience more enjoyable. However, LHS still has it's flaws. If they could improve upon anything I would suggest investing more money into the school and it's equipment to better improve the appearance and effectiveness of the facility.
