I am pleased that you are interested in The Laurel School as a potential fit for your child and family.

On behalf of the teachers, parents, students, and friends of The Laurel School, I welcome you. Please be sure to explore our website to learn more about our dynamic programs. The About Laurel section should answer many of your questions about the types of students that benefit from the unique Laurel educational experience. I hope that once you have explored our website you will be inspired to see our programs in action and to apply for admission for your child.

Here is our application process:

  1. Once you have explored this site, please contact our Front Office to schedule a tour by calling (415) 752-3567, or emailing
  2. You may download an application for admission by clicking here, or request one by phone at (415) 752-3567.
