Ladue School District Reviews

I am currently a junior at Ladue Horton Watkins High School and overall Ladue is a good school district. The high school is currently almost done with is multi-million dollar renovation, so the building is almost completely new. The academic environment is excellent with our teachers being actively involved in the students work and activities and do help students reach their full potential and prepare for their future. The school is very diverse with many students from different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds.
However, one thing about the district is that although they are diverse, there are very distinct cliches. The district as a whole, while diverse, does have an issue with fully understanding minorities, but the staff of the district is constantly achieving to make every student and parent feel equal and involved throughout each student's education.

Ladue's administration has always been very responsive to the parent and student communities. In addition to quality leadership, Ladue's teaching staff is full of some of the best people I have ever met. I have had fantastic teachers more often than not. However, there some questionable teachers but most of them are properly vetted and dealt with. The high school itself just underwent a $90 million renovation so the building is beautiful.
I love Ladue! I have been here since kindergarten and have only the best memories here. Each school prepares you well for the following school. Teachers are friendly and always happy to help. The high school is brand new with amazing facilities. The district has real pride in Ladue and the community.
