    Academics: The workload for students is normally dependent upon the classes that they take, whether it be regular, honors, or AP. Popular classes would include dance and art because students can be most creative during these times and use the classes curriculum as an outlet. Students are often encouraged to form out-of-class study groups to gain other opportunities at learning or understanding the class material from another perspective.

    Student Culture & Diversity: Not many students have a hard time being socially/racially accepted because LeFlore is a minority school. Student involvement is normally rather high, especially during football and basketball session. Peer pressure is not common amongst students because they usually have the same type friends that share in their like-minded interests.

    Teachers: The teachers are extremely attentive and motivating to students other than just their own. Every teaching style does vary and aims to get across in a way that can be easily understood by each student. Each teacher does take into consideration, the ideas and interests of every student, in order to benefit the class as a whole.

    Health & Safety: The safety of the campus was very safe in the years I attended this school. There were a few instances where students from other schools would come on campus but they never posed any threat to any of the students.
