School Reviews

I have two children that attend Laurence Manning and I could not be more satisfied with the education and moral culture that the school promotes. From educational programs to the feeling of family in every aspect of the school, LMA is the only choice for my family. Whether you come from the Sumter or Clarendon county community, Laurence Manning is the best place to send your child for quality and wholesome educational experience.
