"I am a seventh grader here, and this school is just AWESOME. So many things and activities to do! There are also a lot of electives like Band, Drama, Teacher Assistant, Computer Tech, and a lot more. As far as this year, there is not a lot of trouble at this school. The kids here are so great and really outgoing. There are also sports here like Boys/Girls Wresting, Boys/Girls volleyball, Boys/Girls soccer, Boys/Girls basketball, Cross Country, and Track and Field. I am currently on the girl's soccer team and it is SO fun! The teachers here are great as well. They make sure you're on the right track and they will help pretty much anyone. I love this school and I'm happy I'll be here next year as an eighth grader! :)"
"I just graduated from LeyVa middle school. I think this school is wonderful! There are so many activities available for students! I love how the teachers here are really dedicated to teaching. They would spend whatever time they have to helping students understand the concept. LeyVa has a great after school sports program. Even though they're budget cuts, the school manages to keep all the sports. I personally think that everyone at LeyVa has school pride, whether is wearing your sports uniform, participating in spirit days, or just having a pen that's purple! I came to LeyVa scared and unprepared, but now, I've graduated from this amazing school that has taken me far. I mean, all schools have bullies, and what i love about this school, is that they do something about it. The principals try their best to prevent it from happening. I love LeyVa, it was like my second home! "The Future Begins Here!""
"I am a parent at LeyVa and I am so impressed with the teachers and administration. They do an amazing job, going out of their way helping students on their lunch hour, after school. The poor comments written are obviously a disgruntled few and not the majority. Ask any student here at LeyVa who are a part of such a spirited school and they will tell you they love being here! Good students will always do well in a great environment and that they do!"
"Wow! I've been a teacher at LeyVa Middle School since 1998. I just can't understand the negative remarks made recently. In my opinion, LeyVa has never been better. There is so much focus on making students succeed here at LeyVa! We have challenging standards based classes. We have after school extended day classes for Language Arts and Math. Many teachers give up their lunch time to work with students. There are after school sports that really focus on being a team member. We have a great leadership class that encourages LeyVa pride and spirit. And the gang issue is at an all time low. We previously had years where gang related students flew their colors and attitude in my face. That is not tolerated here anymore and if it does pop up, the administrators deal with it immediately. Before school, break, lunch, and after school there are teachers, admin., and adults out on the yard through out the entire school on yard duty, so I challenge the remark of LeyVa not being supervised or unsafe....this is simply not true. Anyways, LOVE working here and so do my colleges, otherwise, so many of us would not be hanging around for so many years!"
"Well, if I were a parent, I would change your son/daughter's school to Quimby or August Boeger. Here, they were very rude, hung out in stereotype "cliques" insted of being altogether as the administration wants. My friend and I had some trouble dealing with the fact we had to go to LeyVa. You think we're the only people? There's twenty more, just ask. That's pathetic, no child should be afraid to go to school! But, it's true. They intimidate, bully, and show alot of school spirit. Yep, they're bulldogs alright."
