Leland High School Reviews
Leland is a great school!
I went to Leland. If you aren't weathly...your child will be unaccepted. If your child does NOT excel at sports, they will be left behind in classes, by administrators...this school dotes on its school sports "heros". If your child is NOT in AP classes they will be told that they are NOT SMART enough for college and shouldn't bother.
Other than that if you want to send your child here prepare for them to be miserable and want to drop out.
Leland High School was the best school I found for my kids when we moved to South San Jose.
