Leavenworth Senior High School Reviews

I really enjoyed being at Leavenworth. I was a military kid, so it was nice to have a high school that was near my home on base and still gave me an idea of what the real world was like. I think my teachers, particularly in math, were excellent. They inspired me to become a high school teacher myself! I also think that the school spirit there is very contagious, especially around big school events or games. I also believe that this is one of the better schools in the area. The faculty and staff tend to be very kind and excitable, even if they make awful puns every Thursday. The AP program does a decent job prepping for college life but is not fantastic. It takes a truly dedicated student to be able to do all the things those AP courses promise to do. I think there might be a bit too much pressure on younger students to head straight into AP right away. The transition from middle to high school, or even just between high schools, can be really difficult for some students.

I think Leavenworth Senior High School is a very typical American high school. As my third high school (I'm a military dependent), I feel that sports are emphasized much more than academics. It influences the school culture, and thankfully helps increase school spirit. I personally focus more on academics, but it is fun to have a team to root for. Also the drama department is phenomenal! Leavenworth is nationally recognized for that. That is my favorite part of Leavenworth!
Though the school curriculum has been shown not to be the best, there are several amazing teachers with one main goal of preparing students for college.
LVHS has the best public theatre program in the nation as of 2019!
