“I’d say that the experience of being a student at Leelanau is one of a kind. You’ll never find the same support, friendships or way of learning anywhere else.”

-Catherine Oates, 2015

“To me, being a Leelanau student requires commitment. You have to be dedicated to your education, those around you, and to yourself. It is a place for you to grow, not only in your learning but also into yourself; to find who you really are. At Leelanau, we can laugh and learn from our differences because we are all accepted, we celebrate our uniqueness instead of being sheltered by it. It is truly a home away from home. Leelanau means a great deal to me. It has showed me that there are different ways to learn and when you find out which style of teaching suits you best, learning can be fun. This is a great confidence booster for myself and many of the other students as well. Everyone is very supportive of each other, and wants to see one another excel in whatever they do. “

-Helena Joho, 2015

Parents Say:

“I’m sure I’ll say it many more times, but you and the rest of Kris’s Leelanau family have been one of the best things that have ever happened to our family.  Cindy and I talk all the time about how we can’t imagine Kris getting a better education anywhere else, how if we could design a school and handpick the teachers and administrators, it would end up being The Leelanau School.  We just can’t thank you enough and hope that you know we are here to help in any way we can to make your job easier and to reinforce the lessons you are teaching Kris.The-Leelenau-School-Dogs
