Bullys are not what they seem here, and they are cleverly disguised as just troublesome, little kids. Behind all the happiness, there always is a dark side at this school


Posted September 21, 2012

Great school with great teachers and parent involvement..On the needs improvement side; administrative staff need to become more personable, it feels like serving parents/ students/ etc is bother to them, and the principal needs to be more visible (she leaves at the beginning of next month, but most will not know the difference).

Oh Em Gee! Leesville is the best school in Wake County! I love Leesville, our teacher's are awesome especially Mr. Cameron he's the best teacher ever!!! All the teacher's want their students to succeed and be the best they can be and give their all. Our staff member's are very friendly and caring. Overall Leesville is the best! Go Lions!!!

Our principal is O.K., but the teachers are really amazing! They want nothing less but for you to succeed. The curriculum is at a good level, and there are sometimes different classes for different kinds of learners which helps. Safety is very well kept at this school, and hardly any bullying takes place. It's a much better school than most others.

As a former teacher at LRMS, I can safely say that this is the worst school I have ever encountered. There is no administrative support and it is just a bad situation. I hear Leesville Middle used to be a great school. I don't know what happened. It scared me out of teaching.

Posted March 7, 2008

I only subbed there one day, and I'd think long and hard before coming back... Some highlights: someone pulled the fire alarm (for the second time that week), causing students to mill about aimlessly in mobs with no order (what if that had been a real fire?). I heard a lot of inappropriate and graphic sexual talk from students. One teacher told my homeroom there wasn't a single good student on the entire team, another confided she didn't want to work there anymore. The office staff was rude and unhelpful. I never saw the principal, but I'll form my opinion of her from this: before you hear recorded job information from this school, you have to hear a long lecture from her directed at the full-time teachers at that school. I have no idea why she thought that was necessary.


Posted April 29, 2006

The level of parental involvement is excellent, I am not so thrilled with the professionalism of staff. Lots of extracurriclular activities for 7-8th grade. Over half the school makes the honor roll which concerns me a bit, I'm not so sure I feel there is a challenging curriculum in place. Other than that, my children seem to really enjoy it there.

I rate Leesville Road Middle as a 'A' for Excellent school as the Princpal would said 'Expect Excellence from Leesville Road Middle School. I moved here from VA. Beach and have moved my children from state to state due to a Military life and I can't say enough about this school. You will find the teachers to be excellent and caring. The staff is so friendly, the feel I got from the school since I enrolled my child in the Elementary first in the 5th grade and on to the Middle school which is located right next to the Elementary and Leesville High which I'm looking for my child to enter. The area surrounding the schools is wonderful and beautiful. I thank God every day for the schools and the peace of mind it gives me when I have to leave her there. 'You Will Love This School too!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
