Extracurriculars are very important at Leesville, I mean seriously have you attended a football or basketball game?! Clubs are very big which I was surprised to find out my freshman year. Powderpuff is big and really nice that they do something for girls who maybe didnt make a sport. Leesville I think is great because of their extracurriculars mostly, Our academics are good too but many poeple know us for Extracurriculars

The guidance counselors are awesome! They set up a booth at least twice a week to welcome any questions students may have - Students receive one choice of candy per question. Scheduling appointments with counselors allows students to receive help choosing colleges, determining career choice, help filling out the FASFA, and also personal issues at home or in school. The counselors strive to create relationships with all students and help us stay on track.

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.
