Leavitt is a huge supporter of the arts and this quality is wonderful for the students. Visual and performing arts are strongly fostered there right alongside the real value placed on athletic performance. Leavitt's academic programs are excellent as well, offering many options both for level and subject of study, a great deal of AP courses as well as a highly functioning link to the local technical schooling program, LRTC.
