Welcome to Louisville Middle School!

‚ÄčLouisville Middle School (LMS, aka the House of PRIDE) is a vibrant, neighborhood school that promotes academic excellence for all students with an academic emphasis on Pre-AP strategies and curriculum.  Our wide variety of programming choices provides every student with the level of challenge necessary to support his/her personal journey toward academic excellence.  Our mission is to nurture a culture where students are valued as individuals and allowed to explore their creative talents.  We believe that positive self-concept is benefitted through academic success and it is our goal to raise the bar for all students so they go forward with the skills and confidence to be successful in our highly competitive society.

The LMS focus is to “show PRIDE in everything we do” in order to raise the achievement for all learners and help them on their way toward being New Century Graduates.  We work hard to close the gap between our highest and lowest performing students.  We do this by offering highly challenging advanced classes through language arts, social studies, math and science while also providing extra support in reading, writing, math, and study skills.  These support classes are offered with a smaller teacher/student ratio.  For students achieving at or near advanced levels, we offer a Talented and Gifted (TaG) Program and a wide variety of advanced course offerings.  We have added Smart technology to all of our classes, linking the 21st century instructional delivery with innovative multi-sensory curriculum, such as, ALEKS and IXL math programs, on-line texts, Make Music and library reference.  Led by our award-winning Student Services department, LMS has created a culture where students feel safe and problems are addressed immediately and appropriately. 

Parents are an essential element in the success of students and the school community, as a well.  Our parents provide positive direction and critical feedback for the school improvement process.  LMS parents promote student learning, act as Parent Mentors and Greeters, volunteer countless hours, and provide financial support for building programs.

Louisville Middle is fortunate to have a modern building that supports our innovative programming.  The House of PRIDE completed a 16 million dollar remodel, as part of the B.V.S.D. Bond Project.  This B.V.S.D. Capital Improvement Project includes a new fine arts wing, technology center, applied technology lab, ESL classes, orchestra, band and choir classrooms, plus a 21st century auditorium.  We have a new student center, administration and counseling offices, as well as remodeled science, special education, and math classrooms.
