LeFlore Magnet High School Reviews
My experience at John L. LeFlore HIgh School was unlike any other. Attending LeFlore really built my school spirit. The entire staff body treats you just like family. The students are very kind and easy to get along with.
I attended LeFlore Magnet High School for all four years. I participated in the band as well. LeFlore has great teachers that are willing to work with you when you need them. They also have four signature academies to choose from. If you choose one of the academy’s and do really well you would have the opportunity to possibly get hired on at the business that you did your clinical work at. LeFlore also has a variety of sports and clubs to be apart of. They really take pride in their students to make sure they receive the tools needed once they enter the real world. If your plans is to go to college or even into the military, the counselor is always available to help you get on the right track. I wouldn’t have chosen any other school.
I enjoyed my experience at Leflore. The principal, faculty, and staff actively engaged themselves with the students. I felt safe at my school as well. The only thing I would like to see change is the food they serve in the cafeteria.
Loved it here. Fun environment and great teachers. Lunch was also good. My favorite part about the school is the band. Best band in Mobile County Public School System. The pep rallies, talent shows, and games were fun!
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.
Leflore has been my home for the past four and i wouldn't trade it for the world. The biggest thing about it is the atmosphere. There is no diversity so everyone clicks with everyone. The clubs and athletics are part of what keeps the school running. The law and medical program are grest amd we have many students to get great jobs because at there certification from Leflore. It is a grrat school to attend and i would recommend it to everyone.
Overall, my experience at Leflore High School has been great. The teachers and staff are very helpful. One teacher in particular I will always remember. Ms. Debra Williams teaches 11th grade English and she taught me more about writing than all my previous english teachers. Because of her, I am a better writer. Because of Leflore I am a well rounded person, comfortable in my own skin and confident.
The teachers try to make high school as enjoyable as they can, plus most of the staff are Alumi.
Most teachers are understanding and are willing to help those who want to help themselves, on the other hand you have those teachers who could care less they came to teach and they don't care if your engaged or not.
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 .
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.
The workload for students is normally dependent upon the classes that they take, whether it be regular, honors, or AP. Popular classes would include dance and art because students can be most creative during these times and use the classes curriculum as an outlet. Students are often encouraged to form out-of-class study groups to gain other opportunities at learning or understanding the class material from another perspective.
Not many students have a hard time being socially/racially accepted because LeFlore is a minority school. Student involvement is normally rather high, especially during football and basketball session. Peer pressure is not common amongst students because they usually have the same type friends that share in their like-minded interests.
Varies clubs like SkillsUSA, FBLA, and Culturama all aim to produce hard-working and well rounded citizens of society. Each organization instills a sense of discipline in their students as they prepare us all for the working world.
The teachers are extremely attentive and motivating to students other than just their own. Every teaching style does vary and aims to get across in a way that can be easily understood by each student. Each teacher does take into consideration, the ideas and interests of every student, in order to benefit the class as a whole.
The safety of the campus was very safe in the years I attended this school. There were a few instances where students from other schools would come on campus but they never posed any threat to any of the students.
The extracurricular activities are so fun people in the community are often invited to come participate and there are usually 1000-1500 people at the least at any given event
I liked this school because the school spirit was superb. There were lots of cool and fun activities for students to participate in
Most of the teachers are good but since teachers don't really care much about the students
I've made so many friends, and I've grown to become an smart woman. Being here had made me realize that theres more to life then just being bored.
