It has definitely not been easy for my child at this school in dealing with other kids but we all have to learn to grow but whenever a situation occurs and is communicated to the correct individuals it is fixed immediately and does not continue at all. Take my advice parents if you are having a problem with your child at this school address it to the principle right away. Communication is the key and she will address it immediately and communicate to you all the way.
I am a current student in the 7th grade. I have 2 honors classes. Algebra 1 Honors and Earth Space Science Honors and I love it. I feel Lee gives opportunity when you give effort. I hadn't had any problems. I know just about all the staff. Last year they awarded two students $50 for being a junior assistant to the principal. I am in IB and I plan to stay in it.
My son is going into his third and final year in Lee's IB program. I recommend it for students who love learning and for parents who want their children to grow friendships with nice kids. He knows every IB student in his grade, and feels comfortable in the school environment. Also, due to a mistake in the guidance office, he was placed in "regular" math his first quarter of 6th grade, and therefor got to know kids outside of IB, which broadened his horizons and has made for a richer experience ever since.I have to hand it to the teachers at Lee, who have an incredible amount of work to do, considering the many classes with different content that they teach, the demands of the online component of parent/student communication (Progressbook), leading student clubs and much more. The teachers I've encountered give their all.My son has had amazing opportunities at Lee. For him to be able to be in the orchestra with the 100% committed, wonderful Mrs. Johnson, and practice his instrument every day during school hours is AMAZINGI I could never afford music lessons five days a week.
The school is not in our district but our Son was accepted into the IB program and we made the decision to attend. The IB curriculum does not seem to be any different than any regular class structure. I was told (and read) that the IB program used a different type of teaching practice where students worked independently and in groups. Supposedly, there should be more focus on research and less on information / test taking. I haven't seen anything unique about the IB program here, other than the very small community service requirement. We were told that our son would only be with other IB students as well, which made us happy since the school seems (n general) to have a poor performing student body. They now have a program called "Avid" which is to help more troubled students get straightened out and ready for entrance into IB. Our son's classes are suddenly filled with Avid students, and they are disruptive + unfocused. Our son says there are more advanced IB courses, but we were never informed of that. His math is the same content he learned in 4th grade! He is in 6th, supposedly in adv. courses. He will probably attend 7th grade somewhere else unless something changes quickly.
