This is my daughter's 3rd year at Laredo. I wouldn't let her go anywhere else. She loves school and is very successful at a time when adolescence usually makes kids lazy and withdrawn. The MYP program is perfect for her. The internationally-based curriculum is so enriching and really expands her world and understanding. All students take music, art, and foreign language. The drama program is top notch, as are choir and orchestra. Her advanced core classes are really challenging her as well. Don't let the test scores fool you, this school has good growth scores (that's what counts), and advanced students thrive here in the MYP (International Baccalaureate) program. Its a really good culture and healthy environment here, too. Granted, being in the honors classes, my daughter is mostly surrounded by kids who are driven to succeed and encourage each other. She has seen only one fight in more than 2 years. She never sees bullying, she has never seen or been offered drugs, and none of her friends are sexually active. Laredo has a really good group of kids and fantastic staff and I'm very impressed. Middle school was horrible for me. I wish I'd gone to a school like Laredo.
I work full time and the occasions that I have been to the school for activities has been so positive and uplifting. The teachers are so wonderful here. From the principal to the front receptionist each person is respectful, they work with you as a parent. They inform you and allow the kids to use anything they have (equipment) if needed for a project/presentation. I couldn't ask for a better school.
While my experience with both all of my sons 6th grade teachers, his dean and his counselor have been nothing but positive, I could care less for the assistant principle and how she chose to handle a discipline issue with a student that has some very apparently social and behavioral issues. While protecting all students of a school is important a little more interest in the student causing some issues is much needed as well. Kids are not born to be bad, there are underlying issues that cause children to act out. My advice for her, the assistant principle, take a little more interest in the cause of the probelm instead of trying to throw away the child causing the problem. Had that taken place earlier in the process, the event itself may not have happened at all.
I can't complain too much about Laredo.. their school curiculmn is good, and the teachers my son has had so far have been very dedicated to teaching them the material. Granted its up to them to get the work done. There is a few things I would like modified but they are not detrimental, such as how they handle the students, the security can be a little more polite (people skils), you have to give respect to get respect. But other than that and a few little things that are not worth mentioning, Laredo has a great educational program. No school will ever be perfect, there will always be someone or something that we dont like.
i love Laredo so far i have only one bad thing and it's all of the fights that happen. i saw one to day and one of t he kids got hit with a lock and was bleeding from a bump
this is not a very good school it has mean and rude teachers that call my daughter despicable names, the security guards are not friendly at all, and their teaching is very difficult for them to learn. You can also get referrals just for not wearing an school ID. As a parent i would not recommend your child to attend Laredo Middle School unless you want your child in good sports. They do have a wonderful track, basketball, and volleyball team(s).
i dont care what other people say, laredo is a fine school. our principal actually tries to help our school. yes there is a lot of problem with bullying and bad attitude here... especially 7th grade. i would know. teachers hate us with all their heart in 7th grade. but it's still a great school with many club activities and education system. teachers try to teach us even if we are horrible. so if you have the nerves, come and become one of us. trust me, u will find a group you belong here.
So far, the teachers and the education are great. There are too many disrespectful bullies there, however. I have been tripped three times by three different boys for no reason whatsoever. What is wrong with these people? I think the school should do more bully proofing.
The education and the teachers are wonderful. I feel, however, many students there are disrespectful and bullies. My kid has been tripped three times intentionally and has been stolen from on several occasions. I believe the school should start a bully proofing campaign.
I love this school! Sure there are some not-so-good people but there are at all the schools. I have only have two teachers that i didn't like as much as some others but they are overwhelmingly dedicated and fun. I did like the old principal better, but i don't believe that is for me to judge. wonderful opportunities and i get to choose all my classes that aren't required. The schedules are wonderfully set up and make room for learning in each and every class. Any errors are made entirely of our (the students) own mistakes. Oh yeah, and could you go easy on the homework? ;)
I love here at laredo. The school is so great that I wouldn't go any where else. the teachers are always doing their best to help students. The students are always having fun and are doing what the can for our commuity and for the earth. The world affairs challenge team came in second place! The has great talent. We put on plays a year, were the students run the whole show. Also, the choirs, bands, and orchestas put on great preformences. We have a great athledic program.the stundents can get evoled in track basketball wrestling and volleyball. The dances here are a great way to relax and hangout with friends. Over all, laredo is great school. go lions! got pride?
My kids received an excellent education at Laredo and were well prepared for advanced classes at the high school level. The teachers were dedicated to providing a high standard of learning, and were open to listening to my concerns as a parent. I would highly recommend Laredo Middle School!
The curriculam of this school is wonderful. It is IB middle year school. Most teachers are dedicated. The students have to take foreign language mandatory. But the students, maybe half of the students are not capable to challenge IB program. There are many students who don't know how to act at school and in classes.
Laredo is a great place to learn and i love how everyone is so nice to me ^^
Laredo Is like another home to me. Everyday is appreciated. Laredo offers many great programs you ca do such as drama, choir, orchestra, band, volleyball, track, and so on. Though it's a great school, it's not the best. I think we should have a little more discipline because the children here have filthy mouths and teachers don't say a word about it. Teachers are okay. But the environment and variety of programs and classes is what I like best in this school. It's a great place to learn and find out who you want to be. At laredo, I learned about the different lifestyles and cultures around the world. Now, being inspired by Laredo middle school I want to be a missionary, to help people around the world. I usedd to not even have thought about this idea before, but now Laredo has completely changed my outlook on the world. Go lions!
Out of all the Cherry Creek Middle Schools, I believe that Laredo has the most going for it. It is an International Baccalaureate Candidate and National AVID Demonstration School. Not many public schools offer Robotics, Japanese, French, Spanish, German, Orchestra, Drama and university prep science and mathematics classes. I have done some extensive research on schools in the area and Laredo offers a strong equivalent education as any prep school in Colorado, without the expensive tution. No where else will you find a better choice that combines diversity and education excellence. Kids are expected to jump higher and reach further to obtain their fullest potential. This is the best school for my daughter to thrive and achieve!
I disslike this school very much, the teachers aren't that good, the funding is horrable, and compaired to the other school close to it, it is very dissapointing
I love this school so much. Its cool how they put students first. And all the cool new classes its just awesome. -Bri
Laredo is a pretty cool school. I came up to Colorado from Hurricane Katrina. I had only been in the 7th grade for 1 week at my other school before the Hurricane hit. The staff really cares about you and the decisions you make. The Teachers are awesome and really want you to succeed. They have put in some new policies I hear like their going to go to be an IB school and they are also going onto the Trimester system.This year I graduate from 8th grade and img on my way back to New Orleans for High School. I'm happy to go home but I am going to miss and the teachers councilors and all the staff that helped me to this day.I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone.Go Lions!
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.
