LRMS, as well as the elementary and high school, is the best public school system in wake county. I have been involved with almost all of them, and I will say Leesville stands high above the rest. The student body as a whole is very driven in academia, and are socially very appropriate. Many of the problems you see in schools nowadays are not highlighted at Leesville. Students and staff are just very appropriate, and morally sound. It is a 'wealthier' area of Raleigh that is districted here, and it shows in that most students seem to come from homes that have parents that care about their children, and in their behavior, well-being, and education. The teachers and administration care for the students, and genuinely want to see them succeed in all aspects. If you are planning to send your child into the wake county public school system, this is the best choice.
This school was terrible, I was a student there and all the teachers were rude and unhelpful and the students were also really rude and some of them bullied me, and everyday when I came home from school I cried because of how awful the school was.
This is a great school, just as Leesville Road Elementary was. My son goes here. Most of the teachers I've come into contact with are nice, helpful, and caring. Most of the kids also seem decent. My son hasn't seemed to have seen any violent or troubling behavior over the years, as many parents might worry about in public schools nowadays. We love it here.
This school is horrible. The teachers attempt to pass out after school detention and in school suspensions like candy. My is an roll student there yet his teacher attempted to give him an after school detention for asking to use the bathroom. Even the VP attempted to give my child an ISS in a bullying incident where he was actually the victim. The VP even admitted jumping the gun. The principal is non-exsistant and everything is done for through the VP. Most of the teachers are a unable to handle kids. One of my child's teachers was making the kids give her their shoe for collateral to borrow school items! There are so many bullying incidents is unbelievable. I have never taken my child out of school before but he will not be attending next year.
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).
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 parent and very great friend of my child who attenends leesville road middle school, i think leesville is a wonderful school with a healthy atmosphere and many choices that helps kids become independent
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.
