Horrible and can't wait to leave this year.
We were hesitant to send our children to Leckie based on the fact that it was only rated a 5 . However it is very close to where we live and we decided to take a tour and see for ourselves. The school is much nicer on the inside than the outside! The halls are bright, clean and filled with student art. After our tour, we were able to meet with the principal, Ms. James and we were extremely impressed with her. She has a lot of enthusiasm and energy and she genuinely seems to care about all the children and their academic and emotional success. The school isn t perfect and it isn t rated a 5 (as of Mar 15) for nothing, but you can tell that they are on the turn-around. Our children have adjusted well to their new school and they both enjoy attending classes.
My son love Leckie. This is his fourth school he have attended but I truly feel like this is the place for him. Before coming to Leckie is was struggling and reading but now he finally enjoys reading. The principal always have the students best interest at heart. I would definitely recommend Leckie to any parent looking for great school.
Leckie is a child centered, family friendly school focused on high levels of academic achievement. The school is focused on giving each child the best possible chance of competing in the 21st Century World. They: Departmentalize in Math and Reading from K -5: children begin research projects at 4. They offer STEM at the Elementary School Level--they sent an all girls team to a Robotics competition and they placed! My children LOVE school-crying to stay in after-school. From Zumba classess to a Farmer's Market and Organic Garden, Leckie provides parents an opportunity to be involved in a meaningful way. The faculty and staff are kid first, patient, loving kind and SMART. I am a PROUD member of this PRIDE(Leckie Lions)
