Laird Principal Nancy Uxa


Welcome to Laird School, home of the Leopards!  We are a school that provides a positive and welcoming learning community where everyone supports, challenges, and cultivates successful, life-long learners.  

We are an AVID school and the vast majority of our teachers are AVID trained which means our goal is to challenge expectations, provide rigorous academic learning and strive to make a lasting impact on the children whose lives we touch.  

We have integrated Project Based Learning (PBL) at several grade levels and we continue to have teachers whom are members of the District Tech Cadre to ensure technology is being integrated into student’s daily learning.  Our middle school is 1:1 computing, with our students being assigned a Chromebook in which they access Google Classroom for many projects and assignments.  

Laird offers after school sports such as co-ed soccer, both girls and boys basketball, and track and field.  We also offer various after school clubs such as: robotics, coding, science, and gardening.   

We are growing by leaps and bounds and our goal is to be one of the strongest schools in the area!

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have regarding Laird School.
