Leflore Magnet High Schools offers a great Pre-Med program which gives students basic training in the medical field. During the course students go from training to working with actual patients. We also have a Pre-Law program which also gives training in the justice system. The students constantly have mock trials to better their skills. The Mighty Marching Rattler Band is a very big part of the school. Everyone loves coming to the football games and parades to watch the instrumentalists, the flag line, and the flag line. They are the pride of Leflore High School.
Review LeFlore Magnet High School
The overall quality of the teachers at John L Leflore is great. They are hard working and very genuine. Of course most teachers have different teaching styles but majority of the teachers make sure they go above and beyond for their students. Many incorporate technology in their teachings and others prefer hands on activities, it all depends on the teacher and the subject in which they teach. Many of the teachers are very knowledgeable and not only provide you with a curriculum but real world information that will help you be a successful individual. The teachers at my school ginuinely care for the students they are always there when a students needs to talk.
What is so unique about my alma mater is that the media constantly tries to slander our name but no matter how hard the people label us as "reckless" , we have yet to be listed as a failing school of MCPSS. Every other mostly African-American school in my county has been listed as a failin school, meaning their ACT scores are not where they should be and that the students at those schools are not college ready. My favorite experience so far as a student a Leflore would be the classes that I have taken. They have prepared me for college.(AP/Honors/DUALEnrollment) I would totally chose this school again if I could because not only are we a institution, we are a rattler family. And the teachers and counselors as well as administrators put the importance of the student body first .
