Leigh High School
Develops grit: Neutral

This all depends on the inidividual teachers. Some teachers encourage their students to put in 100% where other teachers do not have the want or the time to put that kind of effort into their students.

They are trying and I hope to see more of this on the campus with those students that attended Camp Everytown. I hope the high school uses these Camp Everytown attendees as ambassadors on the campus to promote empathy among all groups on campus.

I believe the school staff tries but they are short staffed and seemed to be overwhelmed. I have a son with a moderate learning disability. Unfortunately, he has fallen through the cracks and not received the instruction needed. Each teacher uses school loop differently, if they use it all, which makes it extremely difficult for a parent to help their child stay on top of tasks.

The reviews describing Leigh High school's management are spot on. My son attended Leigh 08-12. The staff do their best and many are very good. But the poor leadership has created an evironment that keeps quality education mediocre at best. My son was accepted some very good universities but still struggled as a freshman. He is a junior now and is thriving now and on track to graduate on time thanks to his own hard work. The folks who give this school 5 stars are not seeing the whole picture. The administrative change occurring at Leigh is validation of this review and other sub-standard reviews. Leigh has been a very good school in years past and I believe it will be again one day.

Leigh High School is currently going through administrative changes. This is good as the past four years have been less than stellar for the staff and the students. Despite any glowing reviews posted, Leigh is not a good environment for students that are unable to be self-taught or independent learners. Departments are constantly changing their rules and processes. The Math department is horrible. There are only two teachers truly qualified to teach. The rest could care less about being there or take any interest in their students. Consistency does not exist. I would highly recommend reconsidering sending your children to Leigh. Attend both school and District meetings to get a better understanding. Ask recent grads and parents before you send your children to this school.

Even though this is a large high school, it has a small school feel. The teachers are great and have a geniune sense of community and care for our students.

Out of the 3 high schools I've been to, Leigh is by far the best one! The teachers I am fortunate enough to have are caring & for the most part good at what they do, with a few exceptions. Unlike a lot of the schools in the Bay Area, Leigh trusts their students enough to provide them with lockers which I believe says a lot. Because of the nice facilities, outstanding teachers, and tremendous amount of school spirit, every student at Leigh is privileged to go to such a fantastic school.

I hope that these parents that post negative comments about Leigh High school are going directly to the Principal, Administration Offices and the District Superintendent to register their complaints. In addition, If all parents participated/supported the school and communicated with the above contacts this would help the school to improve in the right direction. Parent participation is not high at this school in comparison to other High API scoring schools nearby. Are you participating and contributing to making this a better school? A grandparent of a student at Leigh High.

1 counselor per 900 students, administration is non-responsive regarding individual students issues. Was a great school 10 years ago. Wouldn't recommend Leigh for 2014. Needs new management and new Honors level teachers.

Sartorette Elementary is an excellent school with caring teachers and staff. Though they have used their funds wisely, they still face the same challenges every school faces in CA.
