School leadership is TERRIBLE, bordering on abusive! Unwise, intolerant, and incompetent. Please do not consider LL Wright as an academic option for your children if you value their success.

Some good teachers...others are just there to put in their time and collect a paycheck. I am proud to be a Red Devil but I never got the recognition I deserved since I didn't have "the name" and it never helped that my dad was from Bessemer. It's not what you know in this town; but who you blow...starts in Little League, matriculates to high school, and onward in life. Screw L.L. Wright and the quote-unquote high horse that Tim Kolesar rode in on!!!!!
