Ladue Middle School (LMS) is a unique place to learn, teach and grow. With nearly 1,000 students grades 6-8, we serve ten diverse municipalities in suburban St. Louis. Our Mission and Objectives demonstrate our determination to provide a safe, positive, school environment dedicated to high academic achievement.
Mission: All Students Will Learn At High Levels Because of What We Do.
Objectives: All students, staff, and families will feel a sense of belonging to the LMS community; each student’s performance will be at or above grade level; and every student will demonstrate behaviors characteristic of responsible citizens.

Academically, our students consistently perform well. Of seventh graders, 43% score in the 95th percentile or higher on reading/math assessments. Our Science Olympiad teams were national qualifiers twenty-two out of the last twenty-four years. These outstanding outcomes are made possible by commitment, involvement, and collaboration between teachers, staff, parents, and community.

Our 2014 National School of Character recognition reflects tremendous strides in Character Education and Diversity, including establishing our Honor Code (“As members of the LMS community, we agree to treat others with respect, kindness, honesty, and a positive attitude.”) and “The 5 P’s”: Prompt, Prepared, Polite, Positive, and Productive.

We’ve created opportunities to honor student voices and celebrate individual successes and diversity. Students have initiated clubs, including the Gay-Straight Alliance and Character Council. Citizenship Honor Ceremonies celebrate the numerous students demonstrating outstanding citizenship and “I Am LMS” Day increases understanding and appreciation of different cultures, religions, races, and identities.
