Overall, it is a great school with various teachers that teach differently. Even though there's comments on how poor the environment (vulgar people, poor bathrooms...), we are family and care for each other, including Temple Terrace and the community. We are well connected school with programs to help the graduates to college such as AVID and Band. Also, the extracurricular activities are well thought by us, the students! We have Relay For Life, Winter Wonderland, Key Club, etc.

I loved going to Leon! They have such great programs and it is such a lovely environment! My senior year, they helped us with our college essays and how to apply for college.
Leon High School has an incredibly strong volleyball program and a good academics program. They're incredibly active in the local community. I wish there were more classes offered, but considering the student population (200) and the lack of teachers, they have a decent selection. They offer dual credit from Navarro College in Mexia. Overall, it is a decent school.
