Administration is not stern and lets the students ...  Read more

Leo High School is a great school and the staff and administrators are a positive help for the students and parents. My two young men graduated from Leo in 2005 and 2007. They are attending a university on a full academic scholarship and doing quite well.

Compassion and caring about the students is an understatement when I refer to the faculty. There is always an open door policy regardless of the situation for student and or parent(s). I thank God every day that Leo is there for the inner city youth.
