I like the high school more than the other schools in Turner, but it still has its flaws, like everything else. Like the fact that over 99% of the school is pasty white, and some of the staff are good people but not good teachers. And it feels like there's not enough variations in teaching styles for different classes within the same subject, and that could easily screw people over, but overall, I actually think it's a really great school and I'm proud to call myself a Leavitt student. Also, sports are really popular, almost too much. All the focus of the staff seems to rest on that department rather than the arts programs. Like, aside from announcements for a play, or an art show, or a concert, there doesn't seem to be much focus on it, which really sucks for the students who are in those programs.

I was very nervous to start LAHS as a freshman, I was told horror stories about Leavitt from my older sister and older people around that I met. The truth is, Leavitt is a good place to be. We offer programs to help with any bullying, the administration is always willing to listen to people, and the teachers want you to be the best You can be. Leavitt is a welcoming environment where you can shape who you want to be without being worried you’ll be bullied, hurt, or judged, which is exactly what high school should be like.
I like the teachers at Leavitt Area Highschool and how close the community is. Leavitt is a smaller school where everyone knows each other and if you need help you have the resources that can guide you in the right direction. The things I would change about Leavitt would be to add more of a variety of sports like volleyball and lacrosse. There aren't as many options for sports in a smaller school like there is a bigger school in the city. The funding isn't there to have new uniforms all the time or to pay for additional sports at the school. I would like to see that change. I feel that would open up opportunities for many of the students at Leavitt.
