Leflore High School is a school that has extremely positive community and parental involvement. The magnet program has allowed other students from surrounding schools the opportunity to experience the Communication & Arts programs that are available. Leflore HS has an outstanding academic and sports program to offer all students. The Mighty Orange & Green Rattlers are located in the Toulminville Community, where many graduates reside. Leflore HS Marching Band is known acroos the country, for their electric and brillant performances. I look forward to this high school producing our future doctors, lawyers, and professional athletes among other professions. John L .Leflore HS is s school with a vision and mission to ensure that our youth are on the path to success. Overall rating LHS is 9 on scale of 1 to 10
