I have 3 kids in the Leeds School system, with one having used the Early Intervention program for speech improvement. We have loved every teacher that my kids have had so far. The teachers are caring and thorough. The teachers my kids have had have high expectations for all of their students and encourage the kids to meet their goals. Based on the testing scores my children are exceeding the national average in each subject matter tested.
Leeds Elem. We thought moving into this school zone would be good for our children but sadly it did not turn out that way. Bullying is not under control or in my opinion being address properly. Rosalind Wiseman could base an entire book series on this place. It s a jumbled mess of poor communication, parents not focusing on parenting, teachers just trying to make it to the end of the school year, and kids getting away with poor behavior because it is easier than dealing with defensive parents. Are there any caring teachers? Yes, there are. Are there any good kids? Yes, there are. However they are being out shined by the negative aspects of the schools.
Leeds Elementary School is a very laid back environment, My son came from a more aggressive teaching school, The teachers send out letters introducing themselves and their qualifications and I have learned that the teachers that they have also taught at the middle school, where they only have to teach one subject so with them transferring to a Elementary School where they have to teach "ALL" subjects its difficult for them to do, since they only specialize in one subject. I have noticed that the kids are behind at the school, which I feel is due to the teachers of having to teach subjects in which they don't specialize in. I feel like this is setting the kids up for failure. The teachers have a Degree in Elementary Education but don't want to be bothered by the students, and will send them home for little petty stuff.
We have had an excellent experience with Leeds Elementary so far. Our son will be starting second grade in the fall and he is truly looking forward to it! He has had great teachers there in the Kindergarten and First grades; patient and understanding, and willing to challenge and encourage him.
I have been very pleased with Leeds Elementary. My son started there last year for kindergarten where he finished the year already knowing 4th grade sight words for reading. He has enjoyed both years there so far. He looks forward to going and learning each day. My daughter receives pre-school services due to her special needs. The school system has been very accommodating. We have been impressed with all of the teachers and administrators.
I'm glad to see that my son, Bradley, in Mrs. Golden's 3rd grade class is having a great start at Leeds Elem this year. Thank all of you for your great teaching and leadership at LES.
Great school! Have friends in vestavia and mountain brook - lot's of problems comparing to us (was shocked to know). My daughter loves the school, learned a lot in less then a year. Teachers are great, superintendant is awsome - hope we'll grow into a great school district in the near future.
I am so pleased with Leeds Elementary this year. The community is kept informed and involved on an on-going basis. I am so glad that art and music are integral parts of education at Leeds, as well as the highest focus on academics. My child loves attending!
We have had ups and downs during the past five years. Everyone from the office to the classroom has been supportive and helpful. The improvement over the years has been drastic. There has been growth in parental involvment. I have witnessed a commitment to hiring great teachers when others retire, it shows investment in the children, community, and life.
I am very happy with Leeds Elementary. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I have 2 children attending, and their teachers have truly cared for them and their learning. My children have excelled each year. Both my children love this school.
I am very proud of the teachers and students at Leeds Elementary School for the their hard work over the last several years. We are blessed to have devoted teachers that care about our children and their futures.
Leeds Elementary school has proven to be an excellent school. I have two children that attend and I am very pleased with all that the school offers. (I do wish they offered more for the
LES has many excellent qualities! Of these, none are more beneficial to our students than the exceptional level of quality teachers at this school. My son attends this school and has been blessed with caring, dedicated teachers year after year. Teachers like the ones at LES are blessings to parents and students way beyond the elementary years. They truly make a difference!!! Teresa Fendley Glass
