The teachers try to make high school as enjoyable as they can, plus most of the staff are Alumi.

What is so unique about my alma mater is that the media constantly tries to slander our name but no matter how hard the people label us as "reckless" , we have yet to be listed as a failing school of MCPSS. Every other mostly African-American school in my county has been listed as a failin school, meaning their ACT scores are not where they should be and that the students at those schools are not college ready. My favorite experience so far as a student a Leflore would be the classes that I have taken. They have prepared me for college.(AP/Honors/DUALEnrollment) I would totally chose this school again if I could because not only are we a institution, we are a rattler family. And the teachers and counselors as well as administrators put the importance of the student body first .
