the teachers in this school make you work hard and let you have fun at the sametime. Students are challenged and they have many different before/after school activities.

LMS is a fantastic school. I am just finishing my 8th grade year and hate the thought of having to leave this place. The classes are exciting, and the teachers are always there for you, they give free tutoring on their own time and make things easier to learn. LMS is just finishing major construction, and the new part of the school is amazing. LMS has champion sports teams, academics and teachers- I wish I could stay here forever.

We've had three kids here so far, and they do a great job shepherding kids heads and hearts. The teachers and staff don't believe the common wisdom that middle school is one of the hardest times of life: they appear to think it's one of the best.

We are on our fourth child at LMS and are extremely happy with the education, structure and teachers. The counselors are amazing and have always been very open and helpful with any issue (educational or social). Our kids subsequently open enroll to the best schools BVSD has to offer and do very well - which is a tribute to the education they received at LMS. CSAPS are always excellent and my kids do not learn to those tests prior to taking them.

We're now on our third child at LMS over seven consecutive years. We've been impressed by staff and teachers all through that time, and the help we're currently getting with our special needs child is both highly skilled and sincere. The current principal is dynamic, caring, and sharp.

This is what you call a great school: helpful, caring, nice, very smart, clean, but with lots of personality, with strict rules but staff that actually care. If you are looking for any of these traits in a middle school, look no further! Louisville Middle rocks, and many a child or parent wishes they could go there. Never underestimate a brick building! Only one problem: no air-conditioning in the older parts of the building!

Posted March 6, 2006

After my child was experiencing abuse (both verbal and physical) by a few of her classmates, I had a meeting with the principal. My overall feeling was that the principal was unconcerned about the abuse my daughter was enduring, and even said 'boys will be boys!' She gave my daughter permission to leave the classroom if a situation got out of hand--that's right--my daughter had to leave and NOT the boys tormenting her. She experienced 3 miserable years at this 'school' and I only wish I had had the money to take her out and place her in a different school. I only learned of the extent of the abuse once she expressed it in a therapy session a few years after she completed 8th grade. Take my advise and seek a different school for your child--the neglect at LMS is inexcusable.

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.
