My parents have given me the wonderful privilege to attend Leeds High School where the Mr. Brent Shaw is the principal. Promoting achievement, respect and success, Leeds High School and its faculty and staff has prepared me to attend Kennesaw State University in the fall of 2018. Being involved with various school organizations has enhanced my leadership skills and has also allowed me to build a network with people in and outside of my community. With so many different resources offered to the students it is nearly impossible to not be successful, and because of this the teachers do not accept the bare minimum just to get by. I appreciate Leeds City Schools beyond measure. Roll Greenwave!

I love my school! With such great teachers and staff that are always there to help and support you, it's easy to wake up and want to go to school everyday. Our principal, Mr. Shaw, goes out of his way just to ensure the students that he loves them and will do anything for them. There are countless ways to get involved with the community and a number of clubs to join to help meet new people. The teachers take tge time to make sure their students understand and are able to obtain knowledge and perform well in the class room. Thank you Leeds High School! Roll Greenwave!
