What a great school for boys. My son was welcomed on his first day as a Freshman and this experience was just the beginning. This is a tight, highly involved environment that brings out the best in each individual. Now a senior, he has become very involved with the schools activites. Kudos to Mr.

My son just graduated from St Laurence. He worked hard and was in the top 10% of his class. If your son wants a HS experience where he gets to be in individual and not just a number, then you should send him here. Teachers were very interactive with him. You can call and speak directly to the principal

Sure there is fund raising but ST L doesnt pressure or make mandatory donation requests..Whatever activity my son wanted to try he, he was given an opportunity to succeed. My wife is a teacher and felt that the staff at ST L was excellent. No school is perfect, but ST L was perfect for my son. ST L isnt an ultra-competitive school in sports or academics, but both students and staff try really hard and care about each other. If I had more boys, Id definitely make them Vikings. My older son graduated from Marist and wasnt happy he went there becuz Marist got too big. I tried to talk to the principal about an issue my son had at Marist and he never responded even after several contact attempts. Read less

I love St. Laurence School because we are family there. They go out of their way to help families who are struggling to keep their boys in school. They help as best they can. That is why they really can use the $20,000 because they are always trying to help our families.

The student body is the most diverse I've ever encountered. Integration is there, of course groups are formed -- that's natural, but when I was a student, my peers made a conscious effort to talk to everyone. This is what separates STL from the rest of the pack. Tolerance and discipline is expected while
... Read more school pride is contagious. The faculty -- at least when I was there -- was amazing. When I look back, the kids/young adults were not 'fake' nice, but genuinely humble; most kids came from blue collared families so they treated the school as a second family. I just wish the academics offered more AP classes and vocational tracks for those that weren't going to college. The school maybe small, and not as flashy as Rita, Rice, or Carmel but it's the hidden gem -- they guy next door that you shouldn't underestimate. Read less

Our third child is about to graduate from St. Laurence. 14 years ago when we went to an open house at St. Laurence, we really loved it. Just to compare, we went to visit other schools in the area, but we did not have the warm, welcoming feeling as we did in this school. Our third boy is graduating

We really appreciate the respect the children demonstrate when you visit the school for any reason (pay tuition...), the students treat you with respect, open the doors, guide you to the area you need to go(you don't find this welcoming everywhere.) After 14 years, we are still impressed with the great manners children demonstrates 'They sure become the greatest leaders we would like to see everywhere' Great Academics and extra-curriculum activities.

This is probably one of the greatest schools in the area. The teachers go above and beyond the normal call of duty. The atmosphere is awesome and everyone knows everyone else; you are treated as a second family. Don't let this school be pushed aside, you will not regret the time spent here and the lessons

St. Laurence was nothing short of a spectacular experience during my four years of attendance. I wanted to attend every day because if I didn't it always seemed like I missed something. The faculty is extremely dedicated to turning boys into men. Teachers at St. Laurence are looked at like legends.
... Read more The education is outstanding. The lessons learned are not just about math and science but about life and people. Social development as well as academics helped me become successful in my life and others as well. I would really like to question the parents who believe the discipline is over the top, because why else would you be paying tuition for a place that does not discipline its students. And discipline is what makes these men think about there decisions in the future after they graduate. Read less

St. Laurence has been an experience. You receive as much as you put in. The academics are average, but there are some teachers who make attending St. Laurence worth it.
