Leander High School Reviews

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!
Review Leander High School
I really appreciate the diversity of the school and how many helpful and supportive teachers there are. I feel that many of my teachers here provide me with the personal attention I need in order to do well in my classes and I often enjoy many of the activities we do. Teachers here find ways to make lessons and classes engaging and interesting so that the students are more compelled and motivated to succeed and really learn the material. However, I do feel that the rules of attendance are rather unfair. Students planning to attend college following their senior year only have two college visits that will not count against attendance. For students like myself who applied to many programs, I have to go to many more college visits than just two and don't think it's fair that I will be penalized for looking at more schools in order to make the most important decision of my life thus far.
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!
