The school has a freshmen enrollment of 600 students and is accredited by the Texas Education Agency. Historically the school served a mainly rural population, but starting around the early 1990s the area experienced explosive growth due to expansion of high tech industries in the nearby Austin area. In 1999, the school became an International Baccalaureate school. As of 2007, the school principal is Mr. Brad Mansfield.
The school's mascots are Leo the Lion and Leah the Lioness. The school colors are blue, white, and red. Originally, the school's colors were simply blue and red, but this posed issues with home/visiting football games, where the opposing team would wear red as well as Leander. Because of this, Leander switched to simply blue and white. The red was reintroduced in the late 90s as an accent color.
Leander High is also recognized for its yearly integrated Fine Arts productions showcasing the talents of its students from the Band, Choir, and Theater Department in addition to the renowned Leander local dance teams, The Blue Belles, and the Leander Junior Varsity Dance Team, The Sapphires.
