    "We have had excellent experiences at Spoede Elementary, the middle school and the high school. No negatives. Moved in from Rockwood Schools in West County. They are also great, but from our experience, Ladue is far superior."

    "Despite this website's rating of 7 out of 10, it is labelled second in the state elsewhere. Its ACT score compare favorably with John Burroughs, and the tuition is considerably less expensive, even if one is to pay out of pocket! As a former employee of the district, I am aware of the 24/7 mentality common to the faculty, and the predominance of professionals (doctors, lawyers, professors, business executives) among the parent populations whose expectations extremely high, even unrealistic at times. Our two children who are old enough to have graduated from Ladue Horton Watkins High School were admitted to the select Washington University of St. Louis, so called "Ivy League of the Midwest"."

    "Outstanding high school. Very strong selection of AP courses; our children had especially good experiences in social studies. Great clubs, activities, supportive atmosphere. I agree with the previous parent about the misleading math MAP scores. (Site should fix this.) As a college educator, I was delighted to send my children to this school. Students are well prepared for college."

    "Excellent school with a very challenging curriculum but with very misleading Math MAP scores! GreatSchools.org gives LHWHS a lower score of "7" partly because of its low math test scores. It does not explain how the vast majority of Ladue students take the Algebra MAP test in 8th grade so the only ones taking the test in high school are an unrepresentative and small number of lower performing students. Ignore the Math test score results listed here, they are meaningless! If you want to see what the math scores are for the actual student body look at the numbers for Ladue Middle School. I've seen the typical student body in my son's classes and to think only 15%, 24% or even 34% of them are proficient in math is laughable."
