    Health & Safety: Of course, there can be some improvement as far as what students have done outside of school, but overall, LRHS has done a very good job about maintaining a safe environment on campus.

    Overall Experience: The parents at Leesville are extremely supportive! The bleachers might not always be full, but it's never a struggle to find help for important stuff like fundraising and selling Pride gear.

    Teachers: I really love the teachers at Leesville. They're more like mentors than teaching staff, with everything from examples and practical help in the classroom to real-life advice, they're more like family than bosses.

    Overall Experience: My experience at leesvull road high school had been great, from making friends, expriencing and learning from different teachers, but I wouldn't want through it again, because I think 4 yrs at leesvill is enough, and I wouldn't recommend leesvill to anyone, because it's not the best school out there, some of the teachers don't teach and provide help, some of the people can be mean, there are quiet s few fights that happened. if were to choose a high school is would recommend Panther creek, because not only they have amazing teachers, but also don't have fights, people respect you more.
