    Overall Experience: Although the somewhat shady activities make the school a little suspicious, the people in it are great and I have met many good friends. The teachers are all pleasant and mostly all of them are good at what they do.

    Overall Experience: I've been to 3 different high schools and Leesville is by far the best. Not only are they caught up with technology but also they are organized and know how to control a large amount of students. If I could choose one high school to start high school over again, it would definitely be Leesville.
