The Laurel School

  • 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.
