Laird Principal Susan O'Brien Headshot


Welcome to Laird School, home of the Leopards! At Laird, you will find a welcoming learning community where all staff members work with students to help them acquire the skills they will need to be successful in school and enjoy a fulfilling life.


We are an AVID school, which means our teachers provide rigorous instruction using research-based strategies to ensure that our students are able to master the academic standards.

Project Based Learning (PBL) has been integrated at several grade levels and many Laird teachers serve on the District Tech Cadre to ensure that technology is available and effectively utilized with students. Our middle school provides 1:1 computing; each student is issued a Chromebook in which Google Classroom and other programs may be accessed to complete projects and assignments.

Of course, Laird offers afterschool sports, as well, such as co-ed soccer, girls and boys basketball, and track and field. We sponsor afterschool clubs including robotics, coding, science, and gardening.

Our goal is to be the school of choice for families in our area, so please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have about joining the Laird community!
