I am currently assigned to Le Conte as a displaced teacher. I find the staff to be extremely supportive and professional, the students to be respectful, and eager to learn, and the community members on campus to be friendly and active. All Lausd schools need more funding, so I am hoping with that being said, that Le Conte will get upgraded technology soon, to further support their great scholars. I am lucky to be at Le Conte learning that all schools are NOT the same...Some are striving to make constant improvement - Le Conte is doing that. If I had a child myself, I would be very comfortable sending them to Le Conte..and you know how picky we teachers can be..

This is a great school where teachers help the students when they do not understand something and teachers also encourage the students to do better in their classes. Le Conte has many after school programs that can help with school work, like LACER homework club and sports. The one thing i like about this school is that the electives are fun and I'm happy to come to school everyday.

I think Le Conte is a great middle school because all the teachers care about the students The teachers actually get involved in the classroom and outside (especially the S.A.S teachers). Now that I'm in high school I feel prepared for what to do and whats basically expected of me as a student. Although the teachers aren't as great as last years I'll be fine with what I learned.

Our daughter started going to this school in September. The SAS program has had a huge influence on our 8th grader. The teachers and staff are very caring and although she had difficulty adjusting to the larger campus and new curriculum, everyone here has been extremely helpful. 5 stars and a smile from this family.

The teachers at Le Conte work hard to give students an enriched education. On top of electives like Concert Band, Law, Electronic Music, Drama and Dance, we have a Science Olympiad, Battle of the Books, Lego Robotics and Student Run LA. To foster college awareness, we take our 8th graders to USC and UCLA every year. Our after-school program offers Rock Band, art, tutoring, as well as boys and girls basketball, football, soccer and cheerleading. Our hard work has paid off in huge gains in our API over the last decade.

I was a student at Le Conte. If you want your kid to learn anything, please take them anywhere else. I tested in 6th grade english and they moved me to english learners in 6th grade because their classroom size was small and i "fit their profile" because i had only been in the USA for a year. The teacher herself did not speak english in class. The math teacher in 6th grade skipped any chapter that needed graphing, she said it wouldn't be useful latter in life. In 7th grade our english teacher got fired, and we had subs the rest of the year. Science teacher did not teach anything, and only passed one student in his class. 8th grade history teacher made us watch movies everyday... my point being, I used to be a good student who wanted to learn.... my 3 years at Le Conte was a total waste of time. Had i skipped from 6th grade to 9th it would not have made a difference.

While the school is average in its presentation and education standards, it FAILS horribly when it comes to its student performances and parent education. My daughter just finished 6th grade and is in beginners band. I have attended her performances and every single time you have some ladies in the middle of the auditorium selling food and drinks. adult and children walking back and forth all a while the band is performing. That just does a total lack of respect towards the performers, and staff. It also shoes a total lack of common sense and education on the part of the ignorant parents that walk around and or allure their children to do the same.

this is a good school however would be better for our children parents and teachers to have that same system my niece has at her magnet school where all class activities in each subject is given via email percentages and attendance and missing assignments and where working parents can check and be more involved in whats going on with their childrens school work and grades ,rather than waiting till the next report card when its too late to make up or do something about it. i think this would help soo much to build a better cloaser relationship with everyone concerning their child.

Teachers at Le Conte are exceptional! They have a great reading program with a well-stocked library and skillful librarian. There are numerous computer labs and students have a lot of opportunities to participate in extracuricular activities. I highly recommend this school!

Le Conte has great teachers but limited resources and too many children from homes where fights and gang involvement is normal. There is no parental involvement and few activities. Teachers are very good at what they do but the students make it next to impossible to feel safe and learn.

I personally think that leconte is a very good school with discipline,homework call in,great academic school work,and great smart influential teachers. My son loves this school,and wouldn't go to any other jr high school. He's learned so much,and his test scores are very high from were it used to be.I would definently refer this school to anyone who's looking for a magnet,or public school of choice. thanks.

This is actually not a bad school, the magnet isn't really that good, A-track is the same or better. There are rarely fights, teachers like Ms.Brown,Mr.Hanrahan, and Mr.Paivannas are just a few of the great teachers. It's way better than neighboring schools like Virgil & Bancroft.
