Parents are constantly coming in and out of the school to support their kids! Every college info. meeting or basketball game, I see a tons of LHS parents there to support! These parents even volunteer a crazy amount of time for this school. And even interact at academically stuff, including open houses and orientations. Lots of work coming from parents!
I really like this website! It is really easy to navigate and it gives me so many different options. It allows me to make my college experience a little bit more cheaper. With the abundant amount of scholarships and variety I always am able to find one that matches me. Niche offers a lot of different programs to help you define your college search and earn a lot of many for your very own particular activities. Overall I think Niche is a great program and I would definitely recommend it.
To be honest, I wouldn't have gone to another high school if I was given the opportunity. The staff and teachers care deeply for their students' success. Not to brag, but their band program is one of the best in the nation. The only thing I would change is getting rid of the "Drop Everything And Read" during PRIDE time since most students, like myself, use that time to go to tutorials or work on classwork. Also, we are, unfortunately, known for our fire alarms going off at least twice a month because some students' poor decisions. Other that that, high school at Leander has been a fun, memorable four years.
