I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT LOUISA COUNTY MIDDLE SCHOOL! Over the years, I really lost faith in the public school system, but then, my family and I were fortunate enough to relocate and become zoned for this one. TALK ABOUT A BREATH OF FRESH AIR! Mr. LeReche, the 6th grade assistant principal, is so involved with these children and TRULY CARES about this school RUNNING RIGHT! He holds his teachers accountable, investigates, listens, is full of positive energy, works with the teachers as well as the students and their families as A TEAM. He is also very structured and organized. I am honestly not quite as enthusiastic when it comes to the principal, Dr. Chen. She isn't awful as she is always smiling; she just has a level of sarcasm and apathy when a concern is brought to her attention and we have simply found it to be unnecessary to communicate with her any further after experiencing this. Thankfully, other faculty at this school bring so much positivity and productiveness and work so well with Mr. LeReche and our family that we have no problems and for the first time, my child LOOKS FORWARD to going to school every single day.

If you are looking to move into this county and have children entering the middle school, please do your homework. From the secretary to the principals there is a serious lack of commitment, communication and professionalism. My child has special needs and I have never seen a poorer example of teaching than this school. There has been little to no support, even when you address issues to the board members directly. It is very sad how they treat parents and students at this school. Your children will be at a loss for attending this school.

How is Louisa MS today in 2013 & what should I expect it to offer my 13yr old son? We're relocating to Louisa in October 2013. Sincerely, Future Parent.

Agree with the posts 9/3/11 & 4/26/11 - LCPS are going downhill in every single aspect. Catering to HS students & football yet MS students are expected to comply. Funny how HS parents say "it's only every other Saturday..deal with it" to the MS parents / students - yet cannot seem to grasp that very same issue. You're right, it's "only every other Saturday..so deal with it HS parents/students." This school system has been faltering for years & going down hill - lets cater to certain individuals but not others, don't even ask the parents what ideas they can come up with collectively that is better than what admin suggested. Seem to think we're all backwards bumpkins that cannot put together an intelligent thought process. Guess those Friday Night Lights & what very few HS students that actually support their families ( would love to see the stats on that) outweigh the parents whose lives are turned upside down by having to pay for child care or send their kids to "teen quest" at an additional cost to them (county isnt paying for it) not to mention what middle school students have had to give up regarding most extracurricular activities, yet HS has not Very sad indeed.

For anyone with a middle school student looking to buy or rent a home in Louisa versus another county, you may want to look in the other county for the time being. Louisa High School became unusable due to the earthquake in Aug. 2011. Middle school students will attend school Tues., Thurs. & every other Saturday through Jan. 2012. The high school students have priority and will use the middle school Mon., Wed. & Fri. It is a difficult situation, but this schedule is not in the best interest of middle school students. The reason is that the board believed high school students would not attend Saturday classes. Even after Jan. 2012, the school's administration's solution for the time being is 90 modular units for the high school. You may want to bear this in mind if you are comparing school systems for 2011-2012, 2012-2013 and perhaps longer. Middle school students are getting the short end of the stick as the saying goes.

I am disappointed in LCMS. There are great teachers. But there are more mediocre teachers and bad teachers. Bullying is an issue. My child has spent too much class time watching movies with no connection to the class subject (like Disney movies). The school might be decent if Louisa Co put as much effort into education as it does in its H.S. football program. Sadly, the priorities of the administration do not include quality education across the board. A student s education should not depend on the luck of the draw as to which teachers they are assigned. The talented and gifted program offers lots of expensive perks to students who get into this program. Louisa looks for kids who score high on special standardized tests, not kids who actually display art, music or theatrical talent.

Very disappointed with LCMS. The school is so large, it makes it difficult to manage the emotional and academic welfare of students. Quality of instruction is varied, inconsitent use of technology or processes to manage communications, grades, assignments, etc., and there seems to be little control over influences and other behavior issues.

LCMS has great potential with the student body it has and their may diversified abilities. However, the school is failing the students on many levels. This first area of LCMS failing our many students is in academics and that is very obvious when classroom, homework, quizzes & test scores are reviewed day-by-day and on a random basis.
