This school is great in helping English Learners. It's staff is very caring of it's students. The after school program in particular is a great help with parents that cannot pick up their children right after school.

As a current PhD in art education, with a lot of experience teaching teachers how to teach, it is my pleasure to review the school. I went here when I was young and loved it! There's an emphasis on creativity, in a student centered meaning that they try and match it to what students are capable of in terms of ideas and abilities, there is a huge emphasis on social justice, diversity and integration, which I think is amazing. I know other people who went there and they loved it. I know people who have worked there and are some of the nicest people I know. I know parents who have children there, and they would not switch them out of there for the world. I would highly highly recommend the school.

When we asked before the start of the school year to have our child moved from the class of a teacher we had been unhappy with the year before, we were told it was too late. This was frustrating for us, because we asked for the change as soon as possible right after the information was made public. We found the process opaque, as we had not been asked to choose a teacher beforehand. We further noted that other parents had had better success in having their teacher preferences honored, even after the first day of school. Who you know is everything here.

Leal is an excellent school and my daughter has been going to this school for 3 years. Her favorite teacher is Ms.Tiffany, but all of the teachers are excellent. Mr.Landsman, their principal is extremely good, but in a way like the kids. this school is the best my daughter has gone to!

Leal is generally a wonderful school, with probably the best teacher I have ever seen in Ms. Tiffany Clark. There are always some problems in any public school, but Leal should rank very high.
