! This school has been nothing but trouble from day one. It is sickening to read the other reviews of bullying and to be able to completely understand where these parents are coming from. Our daughter as been a victim of bullying for over two years now. We have gone to the teachers, staff, assistant principal and principal. We have filed "bully incident reports". We have contacted the superintendent and have now obtained an attorney. It has gotten so bad that the bully had been coming by our home and attacked our child and we had to get a protective order for our daughter. NONE of this would have happened if this school would have done their job in the first place. The staff does not care because it is not their children whom are being victimized on a daily basis. If you want my humble opinion, the teachers and staff are just as guilty by doing nothing and if anything are further victimizing and traumatizing our children. Our child is also in therapy now, she suffers from severe depression and anxiety and has an eating disorder. She was not like this before all the bullying....what are our kids supposed to do when the adults fail to do their job?

Horrible small, snotty school with unqualified teachers and rude staff, the principal and VP don't do their job by protecting their students. My child was also a victim if bullying. Pay the extra money for private school or home school your children. I along with several other parents plan on suing this school district for gross negligence, among other things. This school is a perfect example of how public schools are failing our children. Pity!!!!!

Overall alright school, students are great and staff is great. However, if you end up with a bad teacher then you're basically stuck with them. The student services has always been little to no help to me at all. Every time I go to student services I have to go back at least 10 times before someone is finally there to help me. I use to think our student services was actually pretty good until I was placed in a class with a teacher that I knew I wasn't going to do well with. I have always been an honor roll student until I had this particular teacher and when I tried explaining that to student services they told me there was nothing they could do. Then a friend of mine took a picture of this teachers class grades that he would post in the back of his room and took it to student services. The highest grade in this class was a C and with the rest being mostly D's and F's. My friend desperately tried to do something to change this but yet again student services acted as if our education means nothing to them.

My child has been going to Leo for years, then we moved to Ft Wayne and had to go to FWCS district. We moved back to Leo the following year. We felt our child was surrounded by trouble makers in FWCS district so that's one of the reasons for moving back. Looking back on everything that has happened, we should've stayed in FWCS district. The only difference is that this school is smaller and most of the families have money. But the hard truth if the matter is, the kids are spoiled brats AND trouble makers! Expect your child to be bullied if you don't have a $400,000+ home, boat, 3 vehicles and a road named after their family. Forget about getting ANY help from the teachers or principal from bullying. It makes me sick. My child now has to have therapy and is out in medication for severe depression and anxiety for panic attacks. Save your child the heartache- GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!! I didn't want to give this a whole star but unfortunately I was forced to if I wanted to give it a rating. We are waiting for this 2015 school year to be over and we are never coming back! Shameful, not worthy of being a school!

The Leo schools do focus on academic excellence. Net result is our two sons are now in college studying engineering. Our oldest is being recruited and flown to job interviews! Thank you Leo-Cedarville for real world preparation and helping to give our children a bright future. There are some exceptional teachers at Leo. Our family moved to the district and fit right in.

Leo is a joke. The people are rude and disrespectful, if you go to leo and you don't have a road named after your family, then you might as well write "nobody" on your forehead. If you didn't go to Leo for elementary school, good luck making friends. If you don't play sports, good luck fitting in. Granted, there are a handful of wonderful teachers, and some considerate students. When I went to Leo, I was in their band program, and that was the only place I was welcome. I had very few friends outside of the music program. When you hit sophomore year, they'll throw your electives out the window. Yes, Leo has a bunch of blue ribbon awards and such, but I don't see why. Other schools in the area have a lot more opportunity for their students . Oh, and the cockroaches are out of control.

After months of checking into a High School for our daughter, we choose Leo. We toured the school, went to basketball games, talked to other parents and kids who attended Leo Jr Sr high. We have been so happy with our decision. I disagree with the poster that stated that it was not welcoming. My daughter has made so many friends. The school spirit is fantastic. I don't know of another school where the support for the girls sports are this strong! My daughter had sustained an injury and the coaches have sent cards, offered to help work with her to get her right back on track to play again as soon as possible. The coaches and the teachers have been so supportive of and helpful to our daughter. While no school is perfect, Leo's staff and students have done a wonderful job of making my daughter feel welcomed and happy,

I went to Leo Jr. Sr. High school in seventh and eighth grade. My parents thought that since Leo was adorned with so many honors(Blue Ribbon) that it would be great for me education wise, and also socially. I'm pretty sure it didn't help with either. The teachers are generally unenthusiastic, though with a few exceptions. I was very disappointed to say the least. I feel that the more honors and awards a school gets, the more everyone gets caught up in it. If you are a parent reading this, and your child(ren) go to Leo or you're thinking about having them go to Leo, please reconsider. Parents think Leo's great, but they aren't the ones who have to go there.

We moved our child to Leo Jr.Sr HS this year from another nearby school. Twwo months into the year and we are still extremely pleased with our decision. The staff and the students have all been overwhelmingly helpful and welcoming. We compared the academics on the "State's" website, and test scores are comparable or higher than all of the other schools in the area. Thank You! to everyone involved in Leo Jr.Sr HS for all you have done to welcome our child there.

After being relocated by my company to the Ft Wayne area, we chose Leo due to its smaller size and good reputation locally. We made a mistake. The Leo area is comprised of many, many multi-generation families, and is not very welcoming of outsiders. The high school is adept at positioning itelf for external awards (5-star and so forth), but it just wall dressing. The teachers by and large do not come across as particularly dedicated (read: typical government employees). The Jr high was more concerned with funding for techical gadgets in the classroom than providing a solid education. For high-schoolers, if you are not a jock, beautiful, or an academic over-achiever, you will be ignored. I feel guilty about our kids continuing to attend there. I'm looking at the possibility of a local private school. Sigh.

I'm a senior at Leo and throughout my four years I've been consistently disappointed. They offer very few electives, and the opportunities available to students are nothing compared to larger schools in the area. The school is more concerned with their appearance than the quality of education. There are a few truly dedicated teachers, but it feels like that number is declining. Unfortunately, Leo is such a sheltered community that many don't see a problem with what is going on.

There are a handful of wonderful teachers at Leo but there is alot of teachers who are there for a paycheck and thats it. In my time with Leo i feel a student does not get the education they deserve especially if they want to specialize in a course or if they need some extra help. Leo is all about sports and forgets that they are there to give students an education.

Leo has wonderful academic challenges, but almost no school spirit or related activites. The high school experience is next to nothing. The school seems so worried about exallence that they forget that they are working with teenagers and not employees.

I have 2 daughters currently at Leo High School and have been generally pleased with their education and extracurricular activities. There are a few teachers that I feel have room for improvement, but that is the case at any school. The students pick their own classes and teachers at scheduling, therefore they can avoid those particular teachers.
