    Lacordaire Academy Lower/Middle School Reviews

    Lacordaire is a wonderful alternative to crowded public schools and overpriced, exclusive private schools in the area. Our son is thriving, has friends for life and his rigorous, thoughtful education is preparing him for high school and college. His small class is extremely diverse both racially and socio economically and his teachers are dedicated, talented and thoughtful--teaching these young people how to be good students and citizens. While there are no obvious bells and whistles, this school has a thriving arts program, (everyone is encouraged to be involved in plays and musicals---7th and 8th graders just tackled Shakespeare's The Tempest! no small feat), a terrific fine arts program and a strong STEM program. The very active PTA offers many social/volunteer opportunities for parents to get involved. Truly a special place and we feel fortunate to have found it.

    My child attended Laco for 3 years (middle school). This is a review of the middle school only:

    Pros:
    -Forensics club
    -Small class size
    -Nice community feel
    -Recent regorganization and new administrators brought it
    -Guidance department
    -Recent technology upgrades
    -They do their best to beautify the school and paint, etc but the classrooms are very old
    -Parent Association

    Cons:
    -The quality of the Foreign Language department is suffering and experiences a lot of turnover. If your child moves on to high school elsewhere, they will be put in the basic level language class no matter what, because Laco's foreign language department is not strong at all.
    -The Head of Math department is cruel and unusual treatment of the students, and after years of complaining nothing was ever done so she continued to get away with foul treatment and disrespect of her students.
    -Sports programs
    -Lack of cafeteria
    -The workload can be overwhelming at times but they've tried to address this
    Lacordaire Academy is a community where are classmates are like family and the teachers are like our parents. We are pushed to pursue our dreams no matter how what. Lacordaire is a sister hood, a family, and together we all help each other to reach the top.
