I absolutely loved my school! Lee high school is a very loving school and tries their best to have everyone on one accord. My best experience at Lee, is when one of my former students passed away in a tragic accident and they held a balloon ceremony outside in the court yard.

Lee high school offers a lot of extracurricular. They want students to be involved within the school and have fun while doing so. One thing I found very effective was the first Tuesday out of every month, the school set up this day so students can watch a movie, play games, and eat free food. Of course this was after school hours, but it was a great way for the students to become one.

Teachers here for the most part re great and very hands on. They use different teaching styles in order to relate and grab the students attention. Being that I attended a magnet schools, a lot of teacher included that within the classroom. We sometimes had projects where we had to draw, act, sing, and even dance.
