Worst school in history they do not back there teachers or subs at all. Very rude people! I will never send my kids there or even recommend them what so ever. Subs beware They set you up to fail. I seen one person let go for something that they did not warn the sub about. Just saying be careful!

They are bound by the state and focus everything on testing. It is not the teachers fault.

Study shows homework does nothing for the students. They also focus to much on testings and not enough time to actually teach the kids what they need.

Thanks to the teachers and students for trying to hang in there in a rather bad situation.

There are a few good ones left but not many. The principal ran most of the good ones away. It has to be his way or no way.

Spanish is gone. Drama is gone. Kids need more homework to learn more at home with parents since the school is not doing a good job of it.

The principal treats the kids like babies and talks down to them. He needs to respect them more.

The principal just wants to look good but he is fake. He thinks he is making the school better but it is getting worse.

They made the news about questionable homework topics being given out to young kids. My kid has seen films and books with profanity at this school numerous times.

This school is really in shape with their great staff always helping children learn even kids who have problems talking. Also this school should really get more clubs for the kids not teachers! I also know that over 7 schools have more classrooms and over 15 schools don't have trailers! Leesville could be a better school with more classrooms, clubs , staff and space outside is full with trailers!!!
