Leigh Community Schools

The mission of Leigh Community Schools is to foster a positive educational culture where: students thrive, teachers guide, administrators lead, parents support and the community is the foundation for all. The school has sustained a successful athletic co-op with Clarkson Public Schools and looks forward to strengthening it in the future.

Leigh Community Schools teaches preschool, elementary school, middle school, and high school students. All ages of students have been under one roof since the new high school addition that was completed in 2020.
