Worst school I have ever seen! My son went there for 2 days and a teacher assaulted him. When I reported it to the principal, she said that the teacher has agreed to not touch him anymore. This is a public school and she shouldn't have touched him in the first place!

This is a very good school. It is a neighborhood school with a very strong staff. It is not very large , at the present time, so they can take the extra time with the students that need extra help. I am very happy with the education that my children are getting there.

About this school

We received a "B" on our State Report Card, and achieved AYP for the previous 3 years. The faculty/staff and administration have adopted "shared leadership" as a way to make decisions affecting the outcomes of the school. Everyone has a vested interest in the leadership and success of the school and share a philosophy of " high expectations". Each Monday morning an all school assembly takes place to celebrate learning and talk about our positive behavior program. East Leonard has aproximately, 80% of our 1-5 gr. students attend the After School program,LOOP, for enrichment and extended learning. All teachers use the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations to guide their classroom instruction. Each student's test scores,comprehension skills and fluency is monitored by the teacher, reading itinerate, reading coach and principle as well as the monthly External Data Review team to assure the student is demonstrating learning and understanding of the curriculum being taught. Grades 2-5 use Study Island as an online testing and practice of Grade Level Content and Expectations in Reading and Math weekly. Students in Kindergarten and 1st are also able to participate as extentions for learning. The Institute for Learning content and expectations are guiding the professional development for the school year 07-10. The IFL is conducted through a grant by the DeVos Family and implimented by the University of Pittsburg for the Grand Rapids Public Schools.
