Laurel went through a couple of rocky years due to a really bad principal, but they have a new, very good new principal that seems to be really changing things for the better at the school. My son loves every day he's at Laurel. My other kid will be starting kindergarten in the fall. The trajectory of this school is great.

The facilities are great and from the limited experience I've had with teachers, they seem invested and genuinely care about the kids.

The principal at this school is terrible. This stems from the District's lack of care and direction. With new leadership and a focus on the curriculum, this school can get back to where it once was.

My two kids love going to school every day. Their teachers have been very attentive and I couldn't be any happier with how my kids have grown.

We are a family in the Laurel community who has attended Kindergarten through 4th and are very happy. I can't imagine better teachers. The kids were able to read before the end of Kindergarten and have tested well among their peers across standardized tests and appear to be on track for middle school. They were really pushed in 4th out of their comfort zone and excelled because of that. The parent involvement must be on par with schools who require volunteer hours. One program I really appreciate is the Adapted PE class the "regular ed" and "special ed" students share. A good learning experience for all involved. Laurel definitely helps build a better community. I just wish the kids zoned for Laurel weren't choosing private schools, as is frequently the case.
