Leith Walk might be known in the past as a great school but beyond that facade is a school with plummeting test scores and struggling staff. I've heard some unpleasant news about this school lately. Parents, check the school's profile first. Not everything that glitters is gold. I've moved my children to another school.

I think my school is the best school to see examples of what real teaching is. The staff show a great concern for their students and go above and beyond their call to the profession of teaching. Our principal is second to none and knows exactly how to run a school. Our school should be a model school for new teachers because if you can teach at Leith Walk, you can teach anywhere.

I am a new parent at Leighwalk and the academic’s at leighwalk is pretty good the way Mrs. Greer has it set-up, but I do feel Mrs. Greer needs to work a little more close with her new staff, in how they should carry it at her school. I was not please at all with Leighwalk this yearl, and hope to have a better year next year. Some of the staff doses not carry it in a professional manner, and I have over heard some very rude things right in front of other children. Parents please question your kids in how there day was always because you never know how they mitt be treated. Have a Bless One!!
