Student Ownership

Leander ISD offers opportunities for students to own their educational experience through participation in advanced programs, academic and athletic competitions, clubs and organizations. Involvement allows for the development of leadership skills, builds confidence, and provides opportunities to contribute to a team.

It is the student's responsibility to develop good work habits and skills while in high school that will pay off during college and into your career.
