Ladue Horton Watkins High School Reviews

Located at 1201 South Warson Road, Ladue Horton Watkins High School builds itself upon character and accomplishments. Rated the second best high school in Missouri and 363 in the nation, Ladue School District is known for excelling in academics as well as athletics. Not only is Ladue Horton Watkins High School known for this, they are also known for creating a welcoming atmosphere for all students. The most important lesson I learned was how to display my gifts and talents for all to see with confidence. At Ladue, each student understands diversity and celebrates each person on their ability to stand out from the crowd. After lacking in confidence for so many years, my transfer to Ladue Horton Watkins High School my freshman year was truly a blessing in disguise. Without the help of Ladue's amazing faculty and students I would not have found true happiness or become the person I am today!

Ladue is an amazing school to attend. Due to the recent renovations, the facilities are state of the art. I actually enjoy going to school because of the exciting environment. Our sports teams are very good, and our academics are competitive. I have loved my time at Ladue!
Ladue offers a wide variety of class which enables students to choose their difficulty of rigor. This being said, they struggle to have class in the middle of normal and advanced which can be quite challenging and have a lot of work. This can be a struggle when choosing classes to find the right balance of hard and easy classes. Ladue also has tons of extracurriculars from sports to every club imaginable. If there's something you enjoy doing, there's a club full of other people who do too. Finally, despite Ladue's stereotypes the school district has a wide range of diversity both socioeconomically and racially. This is great because it prepares students for the future where they will work with people from a variety of backgrounds.
