I cannot say enough great things about Laurel School. The teaching, learning, and experience are, in one word, transformational. Its Head of School, Ann Klotz, is visionary. The community is amazing, its teachers--caring, and its students are happy and inclusive and proud and unafraid to speak their minds. We will forever be indebted to what Laurel has given our daughter.

Laurel School has been instrumental in my daughter`s life. She is more confident, thoughtful and inquisitive as a result of the incredible staff. She is on track for an Ivy League university, which she would not be had we remained in public school. The teachers challenge her. The resources and small class sizes are second to none. Laurel`s Center for Research on Girls is groundbreaking and a fantastic resource for parents navigating the ups and downs of parenting girls in today`s society. 140 acres of outdoor space at the Butler campus provides amazing opportunities for the girls to experience learning in so many unique ways. Ann Klotz is a gem. You will find no greater cheerleader for your girls. The resilience instilled in girls from day one contiributes to a culture of respect, hard work and fun.
