    "my child attends leewood and the ptsa is very active but quite frankly it is a tight group of parents that are stay at home moms and never have meetings in the evenings so there fore the group is limited, and very clicky. those parents kids are the ones that get preferential treatment. secondly i am not sure if the teachers are burned out because the district or school administration demands much from them that limits them to the basic of TEACHING. If your child struggles then like most comments those kids are punished and sort of ignored and parents are the ones that have to find alternatives. In order for a parent-teacher conference it is ONLY done at one hour of the day so if you work you will have to leave work early or late with very little compromise. Love the coach he is probably the most caring and enthusiastic individual there. I love the area love the small school feeling and I know it has a good reputation however I would like to see better teacher-parent interaction."

    "I was a student at Leewood a few years ago, and for my siblings and I, it was the worst experience. All of us were bullied, and despite our parents attempts to resolve these issues, the school treated my parents as if they were crazy to be upset in a school with such high marks. I can count on one hand the teachers that truly cared. I struggled academically while there; I was constantly punished for this, and made to feel inadequate in front of the class. My parents were also never notified of my struggles until report cards were issued. I never had conduct problems, and I was raised to be respectful, yet I never felt respected. I left Leewood with a low self-esteem, thinking I would never do well inschool. My parents moved my siblings and I into a private school for two years, and my life turned around completely. I graduated from a public high-school in the top 4% of my class, I was president of a club, captain of a sports team, and involved in student government. I received a full-ride to an Ivy-league school in upstate NY, as well. I know many who have found success there, but such was not the case for me, it almost destroyed my dreams."

    "I have to agree with a previous review posted August, 2012...School focuses to much on academics. My son loved school when he started, and hates it now, and we're only 6 weeks into the year. I don't want my son hating school considering he just started. I find they're academically too demanding, they will hold the child back from recess if they haven't completed they're classwork, and I feel for the younger population of kids play is still a very important factor in development. I'm considering a transfer out."

    "Too much focus on academics. Fear based. Punishment and reward system using medals and food (sweets) daily. No outside time MOST days because they kids can't finish their work. Not loving or nurturing. For all the things mentioned above not a good fit for our family."

    "Do not send your children here if they have any special needs... We moved from a county with an excellent public school system where my son was mainstreamed except for reading...we came here and he sat in an ESE classroom playing brain pop on the computer all day. When brought to the VP attention I was told that the teacher would be retiring next year it "I promise it will be better next year". Really? What about his third grade year? They claim to care about kids but I have seen only if your child is gifted. Scores are the only thing that matters to them. The arrogance in the office it pure rudeness and unexceptional. Had to put my child in private school to get an education. Very sad since this was supposed to be an A+ school."
