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.
Leavitt is a great place to send your students. The students are nice - is there some stuff with kids not treating each other great yes but overall, I love this place. The principal is a great guy and cares about all kids.
I love iwan molasky its like a regular middle school teachers/staff are nice i love the school
This school is great and my kids had an awesome experience here! The teachers and administration are very supportive.
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!
I love Leavitt Middle School! It is a good environment and the teachers do care. The parents of all the students are respectful and nice. I hope everyone likes this school as much as I do!
I love it at Leavitt! The teachers and the students are amazing! At Leavitt we work hard everyday to provide a safe environment and meaningful learning experiences for students. Unfortunately, you can't please everyone!
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.
this school is ok but the some of the teachers are very rude and same with some of the students i wish the teachers would see some of the things the kids do when their not looking.
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.
teachers want to teach staff in office have smiles and mr wimperman always wants to be involed and wants the best of us
Leavitt Middle School is the best school. My son is in 7th grade and is having the best year ever! The teachers are very kind and helpful. The principal is wonderful, and the office staff is doing a great job. Keep up the good work Leavitt Middle School!
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!
this is the worst school my daughter ever attended.I would tell every parent to put there kids in a different school.
I have a 11 yr old daughter thats in the 6th grade.Never have i thought she would like middle school but she loves the teachers here and the kids as well my daughter is enjoying it since shool has started shes not done as bad as she did in her last school work does get missed but shes able to make it up and get half credit for it thats better then a 0 on her work i was afraid she wouldnt like it but the kids are nice to her and she likes the teachers too
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!
