A Message from the Principal

Welcome to Northwestern State University Middle Laboratory School. My name is Ben LaGrone, and I am most honored to serve as principal in this special school.


Located in the Teacher Education Center on the NSU Campus, the school's purpose is to provide highly engaging learning opportunities for our sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-grade students, as well as quality field experiences for many of Louisiana's future teachers.


Early adolescence, or the middle school years, is a time of dramatic change for our youth. At no other time in their lives will students grow more socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually than during the middle years. That is why this is such a challenging, yet rewarding, time for students, parents, and teachers. We all must function as a caring, learning community.


NSU Middle Lab School has a rich history of providing meaningful and memorable education for our students. The ultimate goal is to have the middle years be the best years of every student's school career. We are very proud of our record of achievement here at NSU Middle Lab School- "Where Learning Comes First."
