Leigh High School Reviews
I've been a neighbor of this school for 3 years and it's been delightful to see the kind of facilities and after school programs this school offer.
Parents involvement seem really good as well and the administration worked close with the neighbors to make the school ground accessible to neighbors with dogs after hours. I would consider Leigh High as first choice for me kid when he get older and goes to highschool.
