10 Parent Reviews for Mclaurin Elementary School

I have a son in the high school, My son has been going here since K-5 and we have had no problems with this school or teachers. In fact they offer tutoring to help your child as much as they can. This is a great small school and community.

McLaurin Elementary has really flourished under the leadership of Mrs. Nowlin & Dr. Brown. They truly love their job and care about all of the students. McLaurin Elementary students are able to learn and have fun at the same time. Testing is not the driving force here, like it is at so many other schools.

As someone else reported, mclaurin is like sending your child to family. That is exactly the problem at this school. I send my child to school to learn.

This is a fantastic school! My daughter is in Kindergarten and has two of the most wonderful teachers. I feel very safe sending her to school each morning. I am very satisfied with the principal and all of the staff I have met. And I just feel blessed that she attends there. Keep up the good work!
