My son graduated from Leo in 2011 and continues to thrive well into his college years because of the great teachings from Leo H.S. The teachers are amazing. The males are great role models and are truly invested in the lives of these young men!

my son is a freshman this year and loves it. He is 1 of 3 Hispanics there and gets along with all the young men there. I love it because its small compared to the public school he came from. The teachers and coaches care about my son, he gets tutoring when he needs it and the teachers keep us updated on his progress regularly. Overall I am pleased and look forward to the next couple years there.

My dad, Joe Prendergast, who was born in 1920, graduated from St. Leo's High School in the late 30's. He turned out to be a wonderful guy! Everyday he woke up he was thankful for the day! A very good worker and father of 12. He was proud and happy to have been a student there! Peace to All. Pat Prendergast Lytle

Please rethink your child's school selection if you are headed in this direction. Although a small school for those children who do not do well in large surroundings, Leo does not administer the ACT for it's Junior class and does not offer extra help. Administration is not stern and lets the students walk over them. Fights, suspensions, good students, and bad students are everywhere so do not worry about that. A school is how your child perceives the experience, but academically Leo is not a great foundation to start your child for their future. It is not worth it for the money that you are spening!! Save your money for a 4 year university!

This is a good school; my son began attending the school in 2007. He has done better than I expected. The staff and teachers are very supportive and concerned about the students. The school has also improved since Princpal Kobus took his position. The only problem I've noticed this year is some of the students that are there now are a bit rowdy. I am hoping the administration will address this issue. Perhaps it may take a measure of getting rid of those students that are causing the problems.

This is an excellent program for young men. I must say, If I had listened to all the negative comments about this school, I would have missed a blessing for my son. He's doing really well. I don't have to fuss at him about his homework anymore. He no longer gets depressed going to school. He's doing well. I thank the Lord for Leo.

This is a bare bones school that basically services inner-city boys who would be out on the streets or in prison. There's nothing academically worthwhile here, just the basic education one might get at a public HS -- no frills, facilities are decrepit and out of date. Send your kid here if you want him to either go to a trade school, the Army or community college.

Leo High School is a great school and the staff and administrators are a positive help for the students and parents. My two young men graduated from Leo in 2005 and 2007. They are attending a university on a full academic scholarship and doing quite well.

Compassion and caring about the students is an understatement when I refer to the faculty. There is always an open door policy regardless of the situation for student and or parent(s). I thank God every day that Leo is there for the inner city youth.
