Will compete in Manchester England this coming July.
Information in this report was incorrect. The North American Computational Linguistics Olympiad (NACLO) partially determines qualification to the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL), rather than the IMO. So the title should read "Linguistics" rather than "Math". The other key misinformation is the "[belief] to be the first in the history ...": Jason Wu earned a silver medal at the International Biology Olympiad (IBO) in 2006. Jason also graduated from Ladue. The Ladue-Frontenac Patch regrets the errors. Information was provided by the communications department of the Ladue School District. Max Schindler a senior at Ladue High School placed third, out of all students in the United States, in the North American Computational …

Host Rams are looking for some warmer weather and clear skies and a day of great competition.
For those who love track and field, it doesn't get any better than the Brusca/Strobach meet at Ladue Horton Watkins High School Saturday. This has grown into one of the premier meets of the spring season. The weather can be downright iffy. A couple of years ago, organizer and Ladue head track coach Keith Harder had to send everyone home because of a total rainout. "This has been the worst weather season I can remember," said Harder, keeping his pulse on the long-range forecast. This will be a real treat. A late entrant are the boys of John Buroughs. Ezekiel Elliott has pulled out of the Kansas Relays to run at home. He will be favorite in the sprints and hurdles and recently became a high jumper. This is the website for TRXC Timing, …

Several hundred million, but none of it is for sale other than the old Wright School property.
If someone was to sell their house, they would get a real estate agent or an assessor to put a valuation on that particular piece of property. The agent would add up the square footage, count the number of rooms, fixtures and value of the property and come up with a given figure. The Ladue School District is no different. Though no buildings will be up for sale (other than the location of the old Early Childhood Center), millions of dollars are wrapped up in value to the district. Here’s a look at the school buildings in the district, their founding years and current assessed valuations. Reed School, built in 1938. 60,565 square feet. Replacement Costs: building $12 million, $114 thousand. Contents: $3 million, $430 thousand; total $15 …
