"My favorite thing about Lee would be the love at our school. The faculty/administration are there everyday because we love our students and we love Lee Academy. Through everything, we at Lee are still caring, giving and compassionate. We carry each other in good times and hard times. Everyone looks after each other. We all come together to help each other, whether it's students (and their families) or a teacher in need at school; also, both faculty and students go out to help/volunteer where there is a need in the community . Every teacher wants the students at Lee to succeed, to create in students a solid foundation so they can be successful in all their future endeavors, as well as be strong, moral, Christian leaders in their job field/ business and as civic leaders in the community.
That's Lee to me."
