Ladue Middle School is an excellent school. The teachers, staff, children and parents are heavily involved in the success of each student. The school won the National Character award. The teachers push each child to reaach its full potential. The resources are limitless. The curriculum is challenging, activities both fun and enrichiching. I absoutley love everything about this school and it's district.

This school is great and I am very proud of being in it. Don't mind the 8th grade MAP test scores they didn't consider the other factors.

I love this School!!!! Everyone there is very nice and there is always a positive attitude toward learning! There are all different types of classes offered. For example, this is my list of classes: Science* Math* Strings Gym FACS ( Home ec.) Social Studies* Comm Arts* Core Extension* The classes I have with a star are required courses. Here is a list of other courses you can take: Video Journalism Industrial Tech (Woodshop) Band Chorus Genral Music ( involves learning guitar) Drama Tech Art Architecture and many more! This truly is and amazing school where you learn at very high levels ( We do more advanced curriculm and score better than most of the state on the MAP test.) Every morning I get up and want to go to school! This school is a very safe enviorment and we are expected to respect other peoples culture, race, religon, and backround. We are like one big family always open to new members! I love it!!!!!!

I think that MSL is an excleent school, and maybe alot better than private Burroughs and MICDS, Also more Merit Scholars and better Follow through from principal on down to staff and students. Dr. Richter deserves a perfect 10. Academic, Music, Art and Sports a 10. I graduated from Private. I am there 3 hours a week

I am very delighted to say that my children have gone through the Ladue Schools, and my youngest is now in the seventh grade. This is a great school for kids. They help them to feel good about themselves and challenge them in their studies.
