Leesville Community

  • Welcome to Leesville Road Elementary School where we take pride in all that we do. The Pride Starts here. We are a K-12 three school traditional campus that binds our community together. Our school encourages staff, students, parents and community members to be actively involved in the well-being of our students. The Leesville Community is a great place to start your child's education. Our community is very involved in striving to start our little ones on the path to success. We begin with incoming kindergarten activities prior to them starting school. Throughout the year we host many family activities to get our parents and guardians involved in their students learning. Be sure to check our calendar and website frequently for up to date information on these fun events.
