Leif Ericson is an amazing school. The teachers are great and the principal really cares about the students. The music teacher is unbelievably talented and dedicated, an inspiration to everyone around her. The computer teacher is brilliant, the students love going to his class! We have the most wonderful gym teachers too, every class is a different experience and workout. My grandaugher is in 6th grade, we have terrific parents in our class, she loves going to school. We couldn't be happier!!!
