Leonia High School Reviews
Leonia High School, like many other schools, is a place that allows students to nurture their knowledge on different subjects of interest and a safe community for students to make friends. The school provides many diverse and challenging courses ranging from Robotics to Nutrition and Health and multiple AP classes for students. The school also holds special programs called the Academy program which is split into four specific fields: STEM, Business and Marketing, Humanities, and Culinary Arts. Through these programs, students are able to take classes geared towards their specified academy through an accelerated curriculum focusing on their interests. The student body is diverse and friendly and many teachers are willing to help students who need assistance by staying after school.
A school that values the statistics more than the students. With no interest in what you want to pursue -- with the exception of allowing students to have independent studies at their proposal -- this school values your academic status over your passion. We have a culinary academy and a science academy but if you are interested in anything else, tough luck! Funding is allocated for the profitable careers.
My experiences with LHS were pretty good for the most part. I've never had any personal issues with teachers or staff members or students. It's just overall things we hear and I feel like we could have so much more if our school and board of education actually used what we have towards useful supplies. And also, they need to start hiring experiences teachers, not ones that are right out of college because every year they wonder why they have to fire these new teachers after one year of teaching.
