I am a parent who wrote the review posted on March 8th, 2013. After I discussed the situation with administration, I believe they worked very hard to resolve the issues I had presented. I am very satisfied with Mr. Whipperman's response to my concerns and I am updating my rating based on the way these issues were handled.

Ok im a 7th grader this year. Ok yes some of the teachers are rude and maybe lazy but still this is a great school. I have never seen anyone in the halls or outside ever get bullied. I have almost acc classes in all my subjects so if you want to say kids aren't learning anything look at me and all of the other kids that have acc classes. We learned a lot.

I am in the military, and my two kids have attended many different schools, to date Leavitt middle school is by far the worst school ever. They don t handle problems they just send all kids involved (at fault or not) away to another school so they don t have to deal with it. They sent my son to behavioral school for defending himself after being punched three times before fighting back. They don t even try to resolve the problem; they just ship them off to behavioral school. We are pulling our son out of this school and never sending him back.

I have now have pulled both my children out of this school for 2 totally different reasons. We tried to move before my straight A student had to go but due to the economy we were unable to. They have drinking, kids beating up kids, u name it it happens & they will take down the innocent even if they r a bystander then send them to another school so they don't have to report having these problems & add them to their stats. Be AWARE!

In my opinion,LMS, has some good and bad points. I categorized them as average per my standard on the performance of the teachers, administration and students. Although a lot will say, it is a very good school. Some things that was of very sensitive in nature, that the school admi. should report or call the parents was not handled properly until we, the parents went to the school, but if it's about dress code or student is late ,you'll get a call immediately or at the end of the day. Also, the teacher's mar their view or judge the student just because the sibling/s of student had a bad rapport or was not as disciplined as the other sibling/s. The teachers also watch the student like a hawk if the parent complaints to the Principal or Dean about a teacher or other things. Performance of a student reflects the teachers.

Love this school. Very civilized students, violent-free, parent- involved programs where everyone pitches in. Basically, an amazing school. - A.

We had a terrible experience with this school. Bullies are not disciplined. Yet the innocent are victimized.

Leavitt Middle School is by far the worst school my two daughters have ever gone to. The kids there are out of control, the principal has no idea what is going on and her staff doesn't either.

Leavitt middle school is one of the BEST middle schools I have seen in a while! The staff and teachers are kind to my child and her peers. Plus, the other children are fun and great to be around according to my daughter who attended 6th grade in the past year. I would definately recommend this school to anybody!

My son attended Leavitt as a 6th grader. We have moved so that he will not have to attend any longer. The kids at this school seem aggressive and I am not sure how well the staff watches what is going on as well as they should. Although my son received good grades he would have enjoyed it more if there wasn't so much bullying, that I think needs to be nipped in the bud a lot harder. Also I think they need to have 2 basketball teams for the younger kids who love the sport but, may not be as big as the 8th graders. It is also unfair for them to have to try out with kids that much older (big age gap,kids do alot of growing from 6-8 grade) and a let down when they don't make the team. Doesn't help confidence! Get 2 teams!

Leavitt Middle School is one of the best schools around. The teachers are great and the kids thier are also amazing. I went to Leavitt and have yet to find another middle school that has been as warm hearted and welcoming as this. The people there are just so sincere and nice. They are always looking for new fun things to do and so up-beat. I have never experienced any harrasment of any sort from anyone at this school. They are probably one of the best if not the best middle schools here. I truly believe that leavitt has a great way of handling thier sudents and staff, treating them equal in all aspects but still enforcing codes of conduct. They are very profesional and overall exellent. They also have some great sports programs. If your child is interested in basketball then this is the place for them. Leavitt ROCKS!

This is an excellent school. I went to Leavitt for three years and I couldn't have asked for a better junior high experience. The staff was great and my teachers were awesome. Now they are sending me onto highschool with everything I need to know and more!

Great school. I do have a special needs child in the school and they have treated him always with respect and he has grown in maturity while there. They have shown patience as well as understanding and I would recommend any special needs child to go there.

My daughter has been happy at this school. I do feel they fall short in offering all the student activities that are offered at other middle schools in the area. I have also seen students subject to harrassment that should not be tolerated under new school district policy. Policies are not consistently enforced. I must, however, say that academically the school is on track. My daughter is continually challenged by her teachers in a positive manner to go to the next level which is a necessity with this age of children.

In my experience, this school seems to have a sincere interest but fails to understand from an administrative and teacher level the importance of and how to consistently implement a 504 plan for certain special needs students. I had two children attend this school who went through hell with inappropriate comments being made to them in front of peers and others by many teachers and staff and a regular mediocre to failing compliance with the 504 accomondations. It may be 'okay' for the non-special needs student but is very unsatisfactory for the student on a 504 plan who needs special arrangements.
