Parents see the Laurel Effect!

“My daughter attended a public elementary school and then a private elementary school that simply did not work for her. The class size was too large at 35-30 students and the teachers could only teach to an average. She was bullied by other students because of her differences and literally had nightmares about going to school. Since her transfer to The Laurel School in the 2nd half of 4th grade, I’ve seen my daughter on a path of steady, positive, progressive change. She is getting her best grades, has made friends, and her favorite classes include science and math.”

“My son has been thriving at Laurel since Kindergarten. His academic skills are stronger than his social skills. He has been supported both academically and socially by a caring staff and flexible curriculum. At Laurel he feels safe, loved, and (most importantly to me) understood and accepted.”

“My son is a creative, expressive, intelligent, loving 4th grade boy who thrives in routine. When he first arrived at The Laurel School, he was overwhelmed by his previous school experiences, hated going to school and had behavioral issues that made learning very difficult for him. After his first year at The Laurel School he has come to trust that he will be supported and respected and his confidence has soared! My son looks forward to going to school and now tells people his favorite subject is math- and begs for story time at night so he can read to me.”
