Honestly Ive heard alot of bad things about the school I would like to know more about the school, and the staff before I send my daughter to Leatherwood next year. Im considering Viper just because of all the bad talk Ive heard. Mostly about ONE teacher. Does this one teacher really run the whole school? Cause I really really hate people to give other kids different treatment just because of who its parents are. Ive heard this one teacher has been moved up a grade each year just so she/he could teacher his/her own child. While everyone else had to move around him/her to satisfy him/her. If thats the case I will def not be sending my child to the school. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Do your kid a favor and send them to Viper sweetheart. As long as that teacher is teaching at Leatherwood School my child will not attend. And I live within a few miles. If you are not of some relation to someone at Leatherwood your child will be treated unfairly. Your child will be made to feel like she is not good enough. Some kids get to do what ever they please. While others are made to feel like they dont belong. Thats a horrible feeling to have. Viper is a much better school, when it comes to individuality. Id much rahter my child to be comfortable because the staff cares for him, than to kiss the butts of a bunch of snobs to earn brownie points. I refuse to do that. And so should you.

Yeah. Leatherwood got all of the rejects from the other schools in Perry County. I know 2 teachers from AB Combs got sent there. One was the old principal who didn't even have his driver's license, because of too many DUI's, and the other one got took to jail for have guns on school property. All I have to say to the parents that have kids that go to Leatherwood is, Good Luck. Cause you're going to need it.

Who is this teacher? I think I know her. I have had the same thoughts, but if anything is said to the principal he defends her from what some of the other parents have said. This school has went to the dogs, literally. I think the board needs to come to up there and clean house. There is a petition called failure to comply concerning the principal. If enough concerned parents signed it something would have to be done.

I don't know how Leatherwood is now, but it wasn't that horrible when I attended. But as I said, that was years ago. But don't trash anyone guys, we are capable of more class than that.

Hey "Curiosity..", I attended Leatherwood, but luckily moved away to TN after K-3. To be honest, after moving back, out of a graduating class of about thirty, I know about 5 or 6 students who are now attending college, but I didn't graduate with them, so I guess I don't count. That's been a while though.

Let me let you in on a secret, Viper is just as bad when it comes to favortism. Its all about who knows who. They have some good teachers but the difference in kids go on there too.

All the leatherwood teachers do is talk on their cell phones...and send all the homework home for the parents to help their kids. We should be the ones getting paid to teach our kids because they sure don't do thier job!!!

The teachers that brought the guns to school is Tonya Ritchie and the old AB Combs principal is Brad Adams.
