12 Parent Reviews for Laurens Central School

My child went to Laurens from K-12. We felt the smaller school district lent itself to more attention for the individual student and also to a closer knit school community. There was never a problem with bullying. We also found that our child's classmates, as well as the teachers were tolerant of any ...  Read more

My child has attended this school for 8 years now and I found to be very disappointed in this school. For one why is NY paying a superintendent and a principal for such a small school? I find that the school expects way to much from the kids and tend to send all work home to do. Kids are on the average ...  Read more

My kids moved here from a nearby school district and I was surprised at how much more a small school can offer! The art projects are great! And the classes are so small!

I will be entering Laurens Central School as a senior this coming school year. I would not want to be graduating from any other school. Laurens is a great community and a great little school!

As a parent of 2 teenage children, I am completely disappointed with this school. My older son had problems and was not helped until he was put into a BOCES program (at my insistence). THEY were the ones who got him interested in school again. Now my younger one is having incentive problems with 8th ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The results for English language arts and math are displayed on GreatSchools profiles and the science results will be added when they are released in the Fall of 2013. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
