Principal's Message

Welcome to Leon Sheffield Magnet School, where we’re growing leaders for life! We strive to help students grow in all areas and to do what's best for every student.

We’re the older sibling, so to speak, of Benjamin Davis Elementary School, and our students are in third, fourth, and fifth grades. We’ve been selected as a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, and we’re also an Alabama Outdoor Classroom.

In addition to their academics, our students have multiple avenues to display their talents, including art, music, drama, STEM, and technology; their athletic abilities during special events, including Sheff Cup (soccer), Turkey Bowl (flag football), and Magnet Cup (wiffle ball); their performance flair via Creative Crew and a March production (“The Wizard of Oz”); their creative juices through robotics and Destination Imagination; their troubleshooting and strategic skills in Math Club and Chess Team; and their unique gifts and abilities in TAG. Leon Sheffield is a place to bloom and grow.

Welcome to our world!

David Kross, principal
