Leadership and Public Service High School

Overview written by the school: At the Leadership and Public Service High School, we believe that education is a portal to developing tomorrow's leaders. It is the school's mission to have families, students, administration, and staff collaborate to identify issues, define goals, and reach academic success. Our curriculum includes athletic, civic, and social programs, and connects learning to life beyond the classroom. We offer a strong advisory course that allows our students to form close relationships with our faculty members. Our students learn through innovative teaching practices which help them develop a deeper understanding of themselves, others, and our world.
