Map of Letchworth Senior High School address.

Letchworth has been more than a School to me it has been my home in many ways. Letchworth is a place that you can go and have a conversation with a teacher that does care and listens to you. The teachers really care about their students. I think that I would rather attend Letchworth than any school around. Some people only notice the negative things and never look at the positives. This school is the positive! The School may be out in the middle of nowhere but that is good I feel safe knowing that there are not many places around, people coming in and out of the school are seen. Letchwoth is the best school the teachers and students are all great.

I was a student of this school in the mid 70's and when I returned to this area, I made it a point to be within this district. It's a excellent school with caring teachers and staff.

The only thing holding this school together is Principal Kelleher and the few teachers who are good and actually care about the students. This school has several new, inexperienced, and generally incompetent teachers, and on the otehr side of the spectrum, not a few senile teachers. The selection of extracurricular activities is poor. The sports teams are well-coached, and the facilities are good, as is the entire building. Most of it is brand new, in fact. These do not make up for the shortcomings however, such as the fact that it is in the middle of nowhere, literally. The nearest town (Gainesville, one mile) is so small (under 500 residents) that they don't even have a public water system. The largest village in the district, Castile, has a population of only 1,000. There is no community to speak of to support this school, and therefore I would not recommend it at all.
