this school is amazing i went there from kindergarden to fifth rgade and it was my favorite learnign excperience my older sister did the 6 years also and now my little sister is going to the fifth grade the teachersare amazing and the staff is kind and caring to all students i recommend this school for any parent
The principal is great, she is the best of what anyone can have. She cares A LOT and have great respect for those in the school and in her present. LOVE HER LOVE HER!!!!
In one word... HORRIBLE!!!! My daughter transferred there in early in the school year (Sept) and we tried to speak with the people in the office who was extremely rude. We waited for the principle and she was even ruder!! She rolls her eyes at parents and answers in a short answer "NO" as if you're a child! As far as academics, she never had homework checked (teacher gave credit for completing but never checked for errors) and never given test results! And watch out if you can't remember fifth grade work because there was no notes to refer to. Basically as a parent, you had to teach your child to the best of your knowledge and never found out if you were right since it was never graded.. The worst school experience I've ever seen!! You can expect unprofessional attitudes from staff, but can't work with rude principle too!
I have had four kids attend this school.The teachers and principal are very caring and encouraging.One of my sons had trouble reading in kindergarten and took Summer school.His teachers, Ms.Bragg and Rebocheck ( sp ? ) were able to raise his scores to a third grade level.Math and Science carnivals are available .The kids loved them and benefited from them greatly.Writer's luncheon was a big hit too.My daughter was motivated by the author of ' Octavia ' ,Doreen Rathmell Meredith .
My son was labled early on as a slow reader in 2nd grade. Although he preformed well in other areas the Princepal and teachers tried to retain him. I went through a third party to have him tested, and wouldn t you know it? This third party explained he passed the D.S.T.P. for the second grade. This is a test that Leasure doesn t even give until third grade. Needless to say this third party has forwarded my sons passing test results to the School District and suggested I look in to legal representation for my son due to labeling and selective discrimination.
I finally had to remove my son from this school. The students that attend this school were a little too rough for my son. The teachers have their hands full. Academics were border line and just was not up to the standard I want for my son.
My daughter has been going to Leasure School for the past 4 years. She loves it there and the staff is great. We have not had any problems at all with staff or other kids.
My daughter is in her second year at Leasure and she loves it. we haven't had any problems. She really misses Mrs.Barron,the teacher she had for her first year at Leasure. My son is in Kindergarten and he loves it. He is excited every day to go to school. I think Leasure is a very good school.Thanks to all the great staff.
From a parental viewpoint...there is nothing bad about this school at all! We job transferred to Delaware from Florida - and my son has done very well here after struggling in Florida schools. (Granted Florida schools are the worst) At Leasure, the teachers are very good, communicate well with the parents and provide a well balanced education. The principle and staff are very involved and listen to suggestions for improvement and ideas. There are great extracurricular programs - including one of the best chorus teachers! The art program is really good too.
I was a former student at this school and I think it shouldn't even be considered as a place you would want to send your kid. Nothing is wrong with the teachers it's the kids that come into the school. When I went there I had a problem with one of these kids in 1st grade! He would give the teacher the finger , he called me racial names, he stole my lunch money and then when somebody would lend me their money to buy lunch he would spit in all of my food and then take it off my tray! The worst thing about it was not a whole lot was done about it and it continued through out that year. So please think twice before you send you kid here
