Horrible school and horrible staff. Moved school district to avoid. I can't not believe what goes on there.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted January 15, 2013

This is an absolutely horrible school! Some of the teachers care about what they're doing, but in two years, we've come across more than a handful of teachers that just don't care - at all. They're clock punchers - gone for the day once that bell rings. There's no compassion for students. Bullying is rampant and systemic (not just by students, but by staff as well). Numerous staff have made disparaging remarks to students on more than one occasion. This leads to a caustic environment and dissuades students from learning.

Not impressed. The administration is awful about trying to resolve problems, and the principal doesn't care about the students.

THIS IS AN AMAZING SCHOOL!!! I absolutely love it here. The teachers are amazing and assign the perfect amount of work that is challenging but understandable. Teachers help us fully understand concepts and the idea and always help when needed. The kids here are AMAZING all grades hang with each other and are super nice. The whole school is involved and don't even let me get started on the magazine drive assembly. I just had one today... SPECTACULAR!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE LEOTA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This School Is GREAT! There is some bullying but what i like about this school is that it's really not a 7th, 8th, 9th grade school. It would say it's a one grade school because all the grade hangs out with each other.

I think this school is pretty good considering most school districts here don't offer after school program. To the parents that are posting 'bad school' perhaps you can go into more detail? I think any school you go to, you or your child are going to find some fault with, because no school in the world is perfect. It is true that while the staff can pay more attention to student's after school activities, and the lunch menu can be drastically improved, I think that overall a majority of teacher's here genuinely care for the students academically and emotional well being. As for 'mean kids', if your child is having problems with student's I suggest instead of complaining you should take the issues to the principal, nothing ever goes solved by just writing bad reviews.

Posted January 9, 2008

I tryed this school out for a month and hated it so much, I eventually withdrew and registered at another school. Word of advice do not send your kids here...Very bad building,teachers and secretary is awfully rude. VERY bad school. I cannot say enough about how bad it is.. Do not consider putting your kids here.

To tell you the truth I am not a parent at LJH, I am a student. I am an 8th grader for the 2006-2007 school year. I moved to Washington from Indiana the summer before my 6th grader year. And I have realized that there are many differences in teaching methods. However I am very much at standard for this school. I am passing all of my classes and the only class I am doing poorly in is science. My friends and I love this school, and although we say we hate our teachers, we respect what they teach us. The school has a brilliant staff. Entering my freshman year in high school next year will be nerve racking but I am confidant in my teachers. If you are considering putting your kids at this school then you've made the right choice.

To the poster who talked about smoking, drinking, and doing drugs. Combined, there is only about five kids that do those. How do I know this? I'm a student. Leota is a great, clean, school with great teachers.
—Submitted by a former student


Posted November 20, 2005

I think that Leota Junior High has mostly great staff and a very involved students as well as teachers and parents. The sporting teams are cut sports as well as most in Northshore school district. Parents can get involved in many activities including a good PTA program and can head up writing the school letter or help with organizing events. Overall Leota is a great school for any kind of child.

Too many different economical backgrounds which spells trouble - The staff is great but seem helpless in trying to make a difference - it is really sad how some kids just seem to get lost.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted February 25, 2005

I love Leota Junior High. It is a great place for my daughter to go to. Except for the level of children who smoke, drink and do drugs. I think that it is a problem that needs to be fixed. Other than that it is a great place for my daughter to go.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
