Laredo Middle School
Teacher effectiveness: Somewhat effective

My husband and I spent my daughters 6th grade year at Laredo in the dean and principles office. The teachers are bully's and the administration doesn't address the issues. We went to the super and we never received any follow up on the issues. We requested her be moved to a different class and we were told, "there is no room for her to be moved". I spent more time in tears because my child was terrified to go to school and wasn't thriving like she normally does. She is an A student and has always loved school but one awful teacher changed that for her. We are no longer enrolled at laredo and we will see how 7th grade goes at a new school with a fresh start. If your child is at Laredo, I highly suggest that you talk to your kids and ask how the teachers are teaching and if they understand the teaching style. This teacher would talk about me to my daughter in from of the class and say things like "I don't need your parents complaining about my teaching anymore, so I need you to GET what I'm teaching" she was awful and I hope none of you have to go through what we went through.

This is an amazing school! They even have some sort of "money" to help children and teens stay positive and well controlled. Never have i seen any bullying or others hurting someone else! I recommend you send your children.

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 She loves school and is very successful at a time when adolescence usually makes kids lazy and withdrawn.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.

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.
