While it works for some students..unfortunately doesnt work for others...my daughter needed extra help and struggled to get it..i had tutors that taught her the material and yet still struggled on the exams ... I have a son who did alright and so for him it worked and no complaints there...2 stars because i beleive that schools should make it possible for everyone..not just the str8 A students...upon reading most reviews i see that there are many with same issue

Leland's reputation is built upon self-driven students. The school is otherwise horrible. The teachers are largely incompetent; I went from considering a major in English to never wanting to read another book thanks to a few of the AP English/Lit teachers. My Biology Honors (honors!) course was taught via VCR. My AP Calculus AB course had 45 students stuffed into a portable. I couldn't even take AP Calculus BC because there wasn't enough physical room. Discrimination by students and teachers is rampant. There was not enough money for paper. Maps and textbooks treat the Soviet Union as a current entity. Counselors do not help with college apps at all. Every year I had scheduling issues that, if went unsolved, would have prevented me from getting into college. The office forgot to send out my transcript to colleges. They lost my volunteering hours (required to graduate) multiple times. The reputation of the school is in spite of it, not because of it.

If you get more difficult classes you will find some really fantastic teachers, like all schools there are those teachers that are just bad but I feel like the majority care about learning and are quite good at teaching. underfunded school though

Both my daughter and son graduated from this school. Though they weren't hrilled with all of their teachers, there are some very good ones. You can send your childeren to this school just for their speech and debate program (#1 in the country). It moulded them into fine young adults building self-confidence and prepared them for their adult lives. Just as any other high achieving school it is pretty competitive but is well balanced compared to other comparable Bay area schools.

I wouldn't trade my high school experience at Leland for anything. They have the number one speech and debate team in the nation, and a thriving, diverse student body who is equipped for success. The drive that I've found here in the students have inspired me so much; there have been at least six people in the Class of '11 admitted into Ivy League schools, if that's any way to measure motivation. The teachers might not be great and the administration isn't the most helpful bunch of people, but I'd say that's life; high school is where teens learn to stop being coddled and grow up - to figure out their own direction in life and pursue it.

If you have a very smart child and you want him to feel like a failure, then put your child in this school. The teachers are just there to make student's life miserable. If your child is a big kissup, then he/ she will be very successful here. The bottom line is that the teachers are incompatible, mean and unfair. Please don't waste your money on a million dollar house here. Its just not worth it. I pulled my child out in the middle because my extremely intelligent child felt like stupid here. He is a straight A student in another high school.

The teachers at this school don't care about giving the kids an education, math teachers copy examples directly from the book and then get them wrong. English and history teachers give out busy work that is simplistic in nature but very tedious. The administration is an even bigger joke and instead of buying badly needed books they choose to spend their budget on landscaping for the school that didnt make it look any better. Not to mention the purple "thing" they have in the quad. They are always trying to give parents and students the run around, telling them to go from one to the other, and to top it all off they are constantly messing up students transcripts including some students who will not be graduating on time as a result.

Awful school. It is overrun by Asians and Indians who constantly get A's. They complain when they get their A-'s and the teachers have to use higher standards than other schools like Pioneer just because of how many geniuses there are at Leland. The sad part is that if you are an average student, Leland will be hell for you. The students there are rude and racist. The smartest students refuse to help other students and Leland is not for the average student who wants to have a good high school career. it is a school for bookworms and kids with no lives but studying.

I hate this school (except for Media Arts [video production], art, and Leland Plus [not actually the same school, but still on campus and is associated with Leland, of course). The teachers have been told to not stop and help kids who need extra help, and only help the kids who are already academically gifted... NOT FAIR! I have had a few WONDERFUL teachers (Ms. O'Shea, Mr. Schwab, Mrs. Gillingham, Ms. Kat, Mr. Barros) there who have not used that method, but they are mostly busy dealing with kids who are upset over getting a 98% (no lie). Most students at Leland are racist, homophobic, and anti-social. Leland may look good because of its API ranking, which is high, but keep in mind that it mostly consists of Asian/East Indian/foreign exchanged, academically advanced students. The average student has a very hard time and very little help.

The staff at Leland just don't care about the kids that are 'struggling' ! No child left behind is a joke!

For all you gripers about Leland, no, it's not a Utopian high school, with the perfect teachers, students & staff. But I would argue the same for many schools. Leland will well prepare students for college and the current work place, especially in the SF Bay area, where diversity in the work place rule. My daughter is a bi-racial sophomore at the school and will take advantage of it's academic rigors, while enjoying sports and social activities. She complains like a lot of teenage girls about her homework load, but I refuse to blame the school for her circumstances. Furthermore, about cliques, when your student finds a school without them, let me know.

The teachers here at Leland don't help. They give you the work and you need to learn it yourself. I am a senior and I can't wait to leave Leland. I learned a lot but not all the teacher helped me.

I've been to 13 different schools in my lifetime. I had the displeasure of being a student here my freshman and sophomore years and I can say, without hesitation, Leland is the worst school I've ever studied in. The AP kids are way too focused on academics - all they do at lunch is moan about how their 92% test score isn't good enough. And while this mindset is good for getting into college, it's not healthy for the real world where street smarts and social skills rule. The teachers are incompetent - they all impressive academic credentials but don't know how to TEACH. None of the staff here enjoy their time; pick up the phone, call the school and you'll easily notice the foul mood. I'm not a whining - I'm just objectively comparing the school to the others I've attended.

Since the beginning of the 2008-2009 school year, both the administration and the students are finding ways to improve school spirit. Most of the teachers are not fantastic, and some make you wonder if they even know anything about the subject they are teaching. However, there are teachers who demand excellence and creative thinking and do a great job of expanding our knowledge without making it tedious. The speech and debate team is one of the best in the country not because there are so many members, but because we have wonderful coaches who constantly give us constructive criticism and encouragement. The music department is headed by a music director that has taken his choirs, orchestra, and band to CMEA's and competitions in Anaheim, and brought back many awards. Leland has definitely improved since last year.

Okay, so this is my sophmore year at this place. Let me just be straight forward, and not beat around the bush... it sucks. This is the worst school ever. We have no school spirit, all the 'smart' kids are only smart cause they want to get the answers, but they truely don't know what it means. Kids here are not taught to learn, or have fun learning, but get the right answer. That's all that matters in this school. Teachers only care about how many answers the kids get right, not how much they learn, or even understand for that matter. It has rich, white kids, who are cliquish and discriminate against the asians, who discriminate against the rich, white kids. I'm not 'rich,' but I am white, and I have experienced first hand, the discrimination of being white. Anyway, I only get 150 words, so take this to heart.

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.
