Overall, I feel LRHS prepared me for life after high school. The many options for electives and clubs provided me with the ability to discover new topics that I might enjoy. Teachers seemed very enthusiastic about their jobs for the most part, with the exception of a few. Assignments were fair and teachers are friendly and understanding in most circumstances. Students causing fights in hallways was an issue, but that is difficult for administration to prevent. Things that could use improvement are the meals, bathrooms, and auditorium seating. Instead of budgeting in cellphone pouches that are ineffective, the school could put that money towards other things.

Most students as well as staff are very helpful and heartwarming. This was my first year at Leesville , and I felt as if I belonged! I thought that this was going to be a very difficult transition being that I was a senior and that I knew absolutely no one from Raleigh but I was beyond wrong. The principal is amazing , the teachers are amazing. Just a wonderful environment to learn. If your new to Raleigh, you'll love Leesville!
The teachers and students at this school are extremely welcoming and will make you want to learn, at least most of them. It's very cool that the high school is connected to the middle and elementary schools, as it will offer lots of volunteer opportunities. There are tons of amazing AP level classes and other challenging courses that will engage you. However, the school itself isn't exactly well-kept. The bathrooms are hideous, I'm pretty sure some have holes in the walls. The school puts way too much money into sports, I had to share a calculus textbook (one that was barely staying together at the seams) with 4 other people, and my history textbook was written the year I was born. Students are absolutely great and it is a very welcoming community overall, minus the buildings themselves.
