Why We Do It

The Leona family believes in bridging the educational gap and empowering our children so that they can reach their unique potential. We believe in educating and inspiring them academically as well as reaching the needs of the whole-child. We believe that our children can be the difference we need to see in the world today!

  • Our teachers strive to meet or exceed students' projected growth targets due to strong routines and procedures that facilitate rigorous learning in our classrooms.

  • Our academies have a high re-enrollment rate because of dynamically engaging teachers and technology integrated classrooms centered around 21st Century Learning standards.

  • Our annual parent satisfaction survey results are positive due to our family first model, which focuses on wraparound services supporting the development of the whole-child.

  • Our staff members strive to provide a safe and family-orientated environment that exceeds students' educational needs.
