My daughter started at Laurel in pre-school and graduated fifth grade last year. We loved Laurel because it was such a nurturing and supportive environment while at the same time was academically demanding. It was not until My daughter started sixth grade at public school that We realized how academically superior Laurel is. She easily achieved straight A's this year in sixth and honestly could have skipped a grade. Amazing place!

The Laurel is a small school with a BIG heart. We chose The Laurel School for our son because of its small class sizes, caring staff and engaging curriculum. The school works as a community to encourage responsibility, sensitivity and resourcefulness in all students.
