School Notes

  • In the summer of 2020, The Newgrange School, The Laurel School, and The Robinowitz Education Center will come together under one roof as The Newgrange Family of Schools. The new campus is located on a beautiful property with abundant green space in Mercer County, just off the Scotch Road exit of I-295.
  • We serve children in grades 1 12 who have dyslexia and other learning differences such as dyscalculia and dysgraphia. This school, the newest part of The Newgrange School of Princeton, Inc. celebrates the strengths and talents of students with dyslexia and related learning challenges. The Newgrange School of Princeton, Inc. is a non-profit organization founded in 1977 and devoted to educational services for children with learning differences. The Laurel School is an extension of that mission. It was inspired by a substantial body of research conducted under former Executive Director, Dr. Gordon Sherman. Our theme Celebrating Cerebrodiversity stems from his work. We believe that our world moves forward because of the unique nature of our brains. Applied to dyslexia, we believe students with dyslexia can contribute extraordinary gifts to our world when they are provided with a properly enriched learning environment. With the Laurel School, we are pursuing that goal with a focus on young learners. The Laurel School of Princeton is closely affiliated with the Ann Robinowitz Educational Center in Princeton, NJ. The Robinowitz Center provides advanced learning and evaluation services including professional development, evaluations, screenings, consulting and tutoring.

The Laurel School is a wonderful community! The faculty and administration truly care about the students and are very much involved with the success of each student! There is a strong, structured academic curriculum and wonderful special subjects including music, theater, art, tech and physical education. With smaller classroom sizes, the students are able to make great, supportive friendships! All students participate in multiple musical performances throughout the year, including a fully staged musical! The creativity that our students have really shines through during these shows! We also offer a Consensus course which has brought out so many amazing qualities in the students! The Laurel School is a very special place to be, and I would recommend to everyone!
