This school is very good I was so scared and I cried to my mom that I didnt want to go there because it's little and I didn't knew anyone but theses past weeks have gone really good the kids in there are friendly you could get friends easily and the teachers are really nice they are there every time you have a school problem or house problem like they are really helpful . There might be some gangsters at LPS but they don't do anything there friendly and kind . There is not a lot of fights because it's little and we know everyone and they teach is life lessons .They treat us like of we are all family.!

This is my senior year at LPS and I am proud to be a student here. My experience at LPS has been amazing. Not only have I learned so many life lessons, but I have created great relationships with students and teachers. They offer so many opportunities here at LPS such as various clubs, SAT tutoring, important organizations like CSF, and so much more. LPS also has a dedicated staff that is always willing to help their students, and no matter what they always be there for you as a teacher and friend. And if you are reading those reviews that criticize our school then you should completely disregard them. Yes our school may have some problems but every school does. However the positives further outweigh the negatives. Coming to LPS was one of the best decisions I ever made.

If you're deciding what school to go to for high school, it should be Leadership Public Schools. Teachers here have their own unique personalities and they're always there if you have any troubles or questions. There's not a lot of fights here since we all get along. Plus, it's great that we're able to have sports and extracurricular after school. Overall, if I had to choose a school to go for high school, it would be Leadership Public School.

This is my senior year at LPS San Jose, and I'm glad that I've chosen this school for my high school career. Throughout my life, I was lost in the corruptness of poor schools and its people. Then, I came across LPS San Jose where I have really applied myself to my studies and more importantly my future. One of the greatest qualities of our school is the influences we gain from the friendly personalities of our teachers. They have really applied their lives to make sure we get the best out of our education. Even though our school is located on a parking lot and is around a poor community, we are more than we appear. We are Leadership and the qualities of our school isn't measured by its appearance, but its people. And to each other we are family; not classmates.

Ok I have no idea what the person below is talking about. They must have attended another school because thats nothing what LPS is about. LPS is a college prep school and I have seen how it has help me. My teachers are great! They are like mentors to me and the students all get along at the school. Yes like other schools, we have had fights but I can't remember the last time we had one. The teachers are really good in keeping us safe! I really love my family (that's what LPS is to me) and I'm going to miss it when I graduate this year!

I'd rate my school 5 stars, were it not for the unjustified opinions of a select few of my classmates. Instead, I'm going to apologize for their actions. They've used this forum as a place to make really biased and hurtful attacks against our school and its staff, which isn't what this site is about. It's pretty sad that while most of the school is focused on improving itself, some of our upperclassmen would try to openly sabotage our hard work by putting us down on a public website. The teachers here give us a voice and a chance to be responsible. The irony of this is that all of the students who posted here to complain would never have felt confident enough to say something if they hadn't learned it through their years at Leadership. The people here might make mistakes, but we still have blessings in disguise.

I am proud to say that i am a student at LPS San Jose. This school is a very good school. The teachers here are really good and all the staff tries to help every student equally. I disagree with some of the students in my school in the aspect of favortism. I have not seen Favortism at my school at all, they treat everyone equally

Are you seniors really going to do this? Please, you guys had your hardships, but look at you now; because of every single staff member and every single lesson taught by them, you've gotten so far into the spirit of LEADING that was taught by a LEADERSHIP school! I find it sad to believe that this amazing school would have its first spoiled students test out their leadership skills on the school itself because they didn't receive privileges such as AP & Honors. Why are you wasting your time putting this school down when it has done so much? Time is money & intelligence, so while you're sitting here falling in love with your tongue, guess what everyone else is doing; having fun, enjoying the school, coming closer to careers, and BUILDING relationships with the needed skills to move forward in life that was exposed to us by our GREAT SCHOOL

I am a sophomore in LPS San Jose; this school has problems just like many other public high schools. However, there are benefits, and special connections between students and teachers. In each class, there are about 15 to 23 students so teachers can focus on helping students on their homework and answer questions. In addition to consisting of small classes, teachers and students share a connection to understand one another and assist in times of need. This also applies to the counselors, deans, secretaries, and principal. The staffs are friendly guidances because they care about students' goals and education. The school is currently progressing to reach excellence and approval from parents and especially, students. This school offers programs, clubs, and college trips other high schools do not offer. In my opinion, LPS San Jose is a great school and a place where dreams of success do come true.

i too am a sophomore at LPS and i think that the environment and community that we have come to build is amazing. You will never see what we have at a main stream high school. We have come very far from where we started, now that we have a permanent campus. With our first graduating class last year, it truly inspires me to do well and graduate just as they did. With the help of the wonderful staff and their dedicated hard work we can accomplish anything. We also now have honors and A.P. courses that are wonderful. We have the chance to do everything that a regular high school can plus more. I honestly believe that this school will succeed and go very far reaching each and every goal that it has set out. I would not consider every transferring. So if your interested please come and visit.

I am a student of Leadership San Jose. This is my 4th year and i am in the top ranking of my school. I once believed in LPS, but as time went by i no longer believe in my school. There have been many issues within our walls that parents and the community are not aware of. Im ashamed of the constant change of staff, the many promises made but no action taken to achieve those promises, and the major change in attitude our Administration had developed. We do not have a campus to call home, we our located within the Overfelt High School Parking Lot. The focus of LPS is to promote education, yet, last year and this year our staff deals with discipline and suspension more often then school wide honors. The direction of LPS has cheated students regardless of their passing or not.

LPS San Jose has made tremendous progress in transforming itself and finding its image. I have been a teacher at the school since its inception in 2004 and have seen the school throughout its shifts in location, staff, and student body. I'm proud to say that LPS has achieved the stability that has plagued it in previous years, and is poised to make positive strides forward. Our first graduating class has 100% college acceptance, with 75% of them accepted to a CSU or UC school. We have found the blend of talented staff & administration, amazing support staff, outstanding parent support, and great student culture that we set out to create. The process of creation is challenging, but rewarding. Students and parents who are interested in taking charge of their education should consider LPS-SJ, not for what it was at its beginning, but for what it has become.

With the review dated January 08, 2008, I am amazed that LPS (San Jose) is still trying correct the same issues from the time I withdrew my daughter 1 - 1/2 years ago and placing her back into a public school system. Placing my daughter back into a public high school was the best decision for her academic and personal progress. LPS did cause errors with my daughters courses to graduation and other students had the same problem once leaving LPS. Thank you to the public high school...Piedmont to correct all the mistakes and headaches by LPS. I also realized that LPS was pushing students forward without them really knowing the course material. I agree, they should of stayed at Piedmont High School. I would not say it is a step up from San Jose schools. San Jose schools have a higher retention rate with students, teachers, and administartion.

I was a student at this school for the first two years of its 'life.' i thought that this school would be a good opportunity for me to go smoothly from high school to college, as this is a college prep school. the freshmen retreat was an amazing experience, as was the sophomore's challenge day, but after my 10th grade year I decided to change schools. one of the reasons was the instability, both in the campus situation and in the staff.all of the original staff that was at the school is now gone, every single teacher and office manager, even the principal. The teachers make a close bond with the students, and classes can be fun and more focused with the smaller classes. Having an advisor is a great thing for the students, especially if they stay with the same teacher and students for all 4 years of their highschool career.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
