My experience at Leonardo da Vinci High School was really beneficial in helping me with my future career planning . The diversity of both the students and the teachers is what made the high school stand out for me. The principal, Mr. Londinsky, has gone above and beyond on different occasions with helping us realize our value and sticking with us when challenges arose. Due to his dedication, our high school has a 96% graduation rate. Academically, they are one step ahead of most high schools because of their college readiness program. I have taken advantage of this program which allowed me to take college courses and gain college credits at D'Youville college.

If I could change anything, it would probably be to provide fellow sportsman team spirit by providing a winner's attitude and also I'd revise the schools lunch menu by providing healthier alternatives.

All the teachers are really involved, they really care about you! They like to see you do your best. The school is really small so you won’t be forgotten. It’s really easy for you to get help if needed.
I believe this school has many great advantages. Considering the fact that the building is right on Dyouville college's campus the students that attend Leonardo da vinci get very good before hand college experience. Students are allowed to take actual college courses at Dyouville during and after their sophomore high school career. This is highly beneficial because students get actual experience in college lecture halls and witness first hand the expectations of a college course. The school community is very small so students are fully capable of getting unique attention from teachers through out the school. The school is also full of culture and diversity. I would definitely say my experience with Leonardo da vinci has been quite unique.
