Lacordaire Academy’s Lower School offers a well-balanced curriculum that both engages and challenges its students through inquiry, innovation, and project-based learning. Our youngest students learn through exploration of their world with hands-on and interactive activities.
The Middle School at Lacordaire emphasizes meaningful engagement with the curriculum among faculty and students. Focusing on 21st century skills, students in the middle school collaborate with one another, engage in critical thinking, and are challenged to problem solve.
Lacordaire Academy Lower/Middle School Reviews
-Small class size
-Nice community feel
-Recent regorganization and new administrators brought it
-Recent technology upgrades
-They do their best to beautify the school and paint, etc but the classrooms are very old
-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.
-Lack of cafeteria
-The workload can be overwhelming at times but they've tried to address this
