The Laurel School

Tel: (415)752-3567
Grades: K - 8 | 66 students
The Laurel School serves students with learning differences and students who benefit from a small class size.
In a community that nurtures mutual respect and compassion, we cultivate the academic potential of each child through multimodal, differentiated instruction.
By teaching learning strategies, self advocacy skills, and social competence, The Laurel School prepares students for the next level of education.
We believe that the key to academic, social and emotional growth is to recognize the whole child: who they are and how they learn.
Our teachers develop specific strategies for learning and personal achievement by zeroing in on each child's unique abilities and learning style.
