We are new to the state and can only hope and pray this school is not a good representation of MMSD as a whole. We will be moving out of the area next year for the sole purpose of getting away from this school.

My third child is starting kindergarten at Leopold this fall. Each and every experience has been fantastic. Supportive and interactive staff, low student to teacher rations, a welcoming environment, and a fabulous principal. We are looking forward to another great year!

In addition, there are many staff, ...  Read more

This school strives to integrate minority students and their families into the educational process more so than other schools in the state. Minority parents have expressed feeling that teachers make a genuine effort in involving them in matters pertaining to their children's education. This is especially ...  Read more

I recently toured Leopold with principal, John Burkholder. I found him and his staff very friendly and approachable. He has worked a lot with the city of Fitchburg and community to improve Leopold. The classroom numbers were small and the play ground was large with new updated fields and equipment with ...  Read more
