Mission Statement

  • Leestown Middle School is committed to engaging students in learning experiences that empower each with the tools for life-long success. 

    Leestown celebrates and takes pride in its wonderful diversity. We also take seriously the responsibility of educating all students to the fullest, and we have a strong focus on literacy and increasing academic standards and supports for students. Leestown offers a rigorous curriculum to prepare students for high school, with accelerated classes at each grade level and a wide range of exploratory experiences including French, Spanish, robotics, and speech and drama.

    We have a strong family atmosphere that encourages each student not only to excel in academics but also to grow socially and emotionally. Parent Learning Nights provide monthly opportunities for families to interact with students and staff in a fun environment.

    What makes us special

    “The Leestown Way” inspires our students daily to practice RESPECT -- Remembering basic kindness, Encouraging others, Standing together, Playing fair, Extending a hand, Causing no harm, and Thinking first.

    A vibrant arts program, a gold-level orchestra, a strong band and choral program, and a number of clubs and athletic teams complement the academic program at Leestown. Our Junior Beta Club was named a 2016 Beta School of Merit, and our student organizations distinguish themselves in competitions and performances.

    Our Pre-Engineering Program also provides students on an accelerated track with a challenging instructional program focused on math, science, engineering, and technology. Our efforts specifically prepare students for the pre-engineering program at Lafayette High School as well as other advanced programs in Fayette County schools.
