My experience at Leesville Road High School was excellent. The teachers and faculty were always working towards making the school better and more productive for students. The school's decision to remove the ABC lunch schedule and replace it with SMART Lunch, where students can go back to classes during lunch for extra help or make up work was phenomenal. There are plenty of clubs and activities for all students to participate in. Leesville constantly adapted to solve any problems that arose, which shows how much the teachers and administrators truly care about the students. Overall, Leesville Road High School was as good a high school education as there is in this country!
Review Leesville Road High School
I've attended leesville since freshman year. Overall I've enjoyed my time here! I've met some great friends and I've become closer to former teachers. I love the talent the students have for the arts, especially the theatre department, as well as the athletics. The administration is wonderful because they genuinely care about the students and will meet with us if we want to see a change. I think leesville could improve its security, as there have been a few fights during lunch.
Extracurriculars are very important at Leesville, I mean seriously have you attended a football or basketball game?! Clubs are very big which I was surprised to find out my freshman year. Powderpuff is big and really nice that they do something for girls who maybe didnt make a sport. Leesville I think is great because of their extracurriculars mostly, Our academics are good too but many poeple know us for Extracurriculars
