I love Laurel. Dedicated staff and an amazing PTA.

This past school year, 2 teachers resigned within the first months of school. At the end of the year, 1 teacher went on leave, 1 teacher retired, 1 teacher transferred, and 3 resigned. Once again, Laurel’s trachers leave. I would caution families to enroll their children in such an unstable school. There are other more supportive & stable options in OUSD. That’s where we’re going!!!

Test scores keep going down. Year after year, positive & good teachers transfer away, go out on stress leave, or retire earlier than planned. The principal means well but is largely ineffective. I'm glad my kid's on her way to middle school.

My daughter has been at Laurel since Kindergarten. She is excelling in many areas, reading, writing, math (is okay she would rather read and write), and socially. I love this school so much! Her previous school was private and she spent two years there. She cried and was bullied the last year. I couldn't wait to move her out and I moved to the Laurel because of the school. She has made friends and myself as a single mother, I feel such an amazing sense of community and support! I'm super grateful for the teachers and other parents at Laurel Elementry! Thank you all for doing a great job!

The faculty are very kind and supportive, the students seem to love going to school and the academics are challenging and engaging. The playground has a lot to offer and the library gets very new books frequently. So far we are loving the school.
