I truly love this school. The teachers really care about the students and most teachers go above and beyond the duty to make sure the students are getting the best education possible. The staff here are wonderful as well.

Leoma Elementary is truely an excellant school!!! We have wonderful teachers and staff who are dedicated to the students and their education. The school is smaller than some but allows for everyone, students and parents, to know each other and become involved in school activities in some way during thier education at Leoma. Our principal is second to none, Mrs. Brewer is excellant. The entire staff at Leoma provides a safe environment for children to obtain the best education possible.

We just moved here at the end of the 2005/2006 school year. My daughter was having academic problems in Florida. When we got her to Leoma her grades went from D's and C's to A's and B's. This is partly due to the great staff that they have at Leoma. This has built up her confidence to begin a great year in high school. Thank's Leoma Elementary!

Leoma Elementary is a great school. They are small compared to other schools, but a very good school. Their music program is great. Mrs. Graves is a wonderful teacher, and Mrs. Brewer is a great principal.

This school is great. Especially the 8th grade teachers. We have a lot of respect for them and love them to death. It has been a great year for all of us and I am hoping to come back later on.

Posted February 23, 2004

This is a wonderful school.We have a wonderful principal that the children love and resepct. And our staff are all great from the teacher's kitchen worker's cleaning lady's and mant. man. I have never saw such a wonderful group of people before in one school as we have at Leoma Elementary. I have a child in 1st grade here it's his 3rd year in this school. He started pre-K at Leoma he love's to go to school everyday and can't wait to return after summer break. So this also speak's in volumes about Leoma school.
