My daughter is a 3rd grader in this school. She has been here for 4 years (since kindergarden). She was always happy about the school! She never complained and refused to go to school. What an amazing achievement from school staffs! All the kids I knew just love the school so much and they said they ...  Read more

Our child was in this school from K-3 and we loved every minute of it. We had an outstanding 1st grade teacher, truly awesome. All the other teachers were very good. The 'music lady' is a community treasure. We didn't have any issues with the principal. Parents are very involved and there are opportunities ...  Read more

Wow, I'm at my last straw with the principal. I have 2 kids at laurel - one in 3rd who has been there since K and another in K this year. The teachers have all been lovely and the school community is wonderful, but the principal is downright passive aggressive and unwelcoming. I am considering taking ...  Read more

I had a kindergartner and a 2nd grader at Laurel, and we are transferring to a different school because of the principal's lack of leadership.

Both my children were reading ...  Read more

I thought I would move to MP to have my kids attend a "GOOD" school. Laurel is good, until you have issues/ problems w/ teachers/ principal that thinks she knows what she is doing and DOES NOT. Parents - it's all show off ( high school ) all over again. Not warm and friendly. I give up! I want to move ...  Read more

There are way too many kids here, unfortunately. It's pretty a pretty school at least, but its gotten very crowded. The new principal is an extension of the old principal, which is not good. Very wealthy families attend, and they like to display their wealth...and the feeling is sort of like high school ...  Read more

My son went to school at Laurel and it was a great experience. Teachers were wonderful. Very strong parent involvement and support from the foundation make this nurturing neighborhood school a great place to be. Academics are strong and extra curricular activities readily available.

We are very pleased with this school. Our daughter's teacher is warm, dedicated and connected with the students. Our daughter has learned a lot and loves school. Great ratio, esp in kindergarten, beautiful campus, library, fields. We toured many schools before deciding to move to Menlo Park (based on ...  Read more

The music program is very poor...not much science either....excellent teachers for the most part. No noticeable innovation or creativity schoolwide.
