School Profile
Louisville Middle School is a neighborhood school offering rigorous academic programs and a wide array of elective choices.  We provide a rich academic curriculum including high school and honors level classes.  We include Pre-AP curriculum and strategies in our reading, writing, and math programs.  Gifted and talented students, as well as special needs students are supported with a wide array of academic choices.  We hold all students accountable for high academic and behavioral standards and we support those efforts by providing academic support time, clinics, before and after school help sessions and counseling groups.

LMS provides a diverse menu of programs to support the educational, emotional and social needs of middle level students.  Nearly two dozen clubs and activities engage our students during the school year.  Pirate Council, National Junior Honor Society, Art Club, Pirate 360, Science Club, Yearbook and our 21st Century Technology Lab are among the many before and after school activities we offer.  Academic competitions including Brain Bowl, Math Counts, National History Day, Science Fair, Chess, Scholastic Art Awards and other content area contests are high successful.  Athletics include a vital intramurals program from basketball to Ultimate Frisbee.  In eighth grade we continually strive for 90% participation in interscholastic completion from football and soccer in the fall to track in the spring.  Finally, with over 400 students participating in our Fine Arts and music offerings we believe that students excel when exposed to 1st rate Fine Arts education.
