Laredo is awesome! I'm going into the 8th grade there but anyone conserdering sending a child there for 7th grade, do it. This school is fun and there always looking for ways to challange you and be fun! They have plenty of after-school sports and activities like track, volleyball..... so and so forth but you get the piont, this is an awsome school.

Good academic school, some teams stronger than other. Lots of parental involvement, encouraged by administration. Note change in principal for this year.

I love Laredo! I had so much fun at this school. I loved everything about it. It is a good school. It was hard and challenging but I think that it will benefit me in my future. The teachers are awesome. Mr. Likeam was entusiastic about science and education and I learned so much from him. Mrs. Hurst my math teacher really knew what she was doing. She graded our quizes like they would grade the CSAP. In addition, she always gave us encouragement on our work and always had faith in her students. I personally commend all of the teachers and students at Laredo Middle School. It is a wonderful school and I strongly reccomend it.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
