"The students and staff at LaRue County Middle School embrace the idea of perseverance and productive struggle as a means to ascertain personal growth and achievement.  I am continually impressed with the academic, co-curricular, and extra-curricular success we have achieved as a school."


The mission of the LaRue County School District, in partnership with the entire community, is to provide all students, through individualized learning experiences, the knowledge and critical thinking and life skills to succeed in a diverse society. The school system offers a wide variety of experiences to enrich the lives of our students, from academics to extra-curricular to social and emotional support at each school. The district is responsive to student needs and provides additional time and support for learning as well as opportunities for enrichment. We support students in the expectation to take ownership and pride in their progress and their future success.


LaRue County Schools has received several awards and recognition in recent years. 2016 assessment results place the district 8th out of 173 KY public school districts, achieving recognition as a District of Distinction and a Distinguished/Progressing district. In 2010 LCS was the first school district to be awarded the Dr. Johnnie Grissom award for excellence in closing achievement gaps. In 2012 the district was named one of 4 "Diamond in the Rough" districts by the Bluegrass Institute. Other awards include EdWeek Return on Investment Top 20 and The Courier-Journal Top Work Places. The district has successfully implemented a laptop learning initiative in the high school and middle school.

"ALES strives to meet the needs of the students academically, socially and emotionally.  We have a great staff and students.  I am proud to be a part of it." 


LaRue County Athletics provide a well-developed mix of sports so our students may realize their full potential as students and student athletes.  We are competitive at high levels in football, basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball, wrestling, soccer, golf, tennis, track, and competitive cheer.  Through dedication and perseverance our students have earned many district and regional titles.  The LaRue County Cheer program has earned not only state titles, but also national titles as well.  We have also been home to Kentucky’s Ms. Basketball in 2014. 

We strive to see our students successful in sports, but our main goal is to build a student that is well rounded and provided the opportunities to be successful in life.  This includes holding our students to a high academic standard.  Our athletic program is an additional avenue outside of academics that provides scholarship possibilities for students as they pursue a college career and possibly a professional career. 

Come support our Hawks as they compete and showcase their talents on the field, court, or track.  Your support helps to encourage our young athletes to give it their best to be successful!
