Laurel Highlands School District Reviews

I've attended Laurel Highlands since elementary school, but it's nothing to write home about. I'll admit, I've heard some horror stories from other public schools across the nation, but I haven't experienced anything too sever while attending LH. There were a couple of incidents that come to mind where we had bomb threats, but, if I'm remembering correctly, there wasn't any real threat. The staff, however, did treat it as a threat and prioritized our safety. I am sure that administration has out safety, well-being, and education in mind, even if some of their good intentions become misconstrued and minor inconveniences for us students along the way.

The school has a very excellent curriculum. The teachers are very informative with assignments. I have taken French for 5 years and it has become a very beneficial in my career. When it comes to special needs students, Laurel Highlands has best interest in their students, as i have a brother that is older than me that had PDDNOS and now has a career that he loves and it was because of our parents, trachers and the Votech training.
I believe that the time I have spent at Laurel Highlands has helped me prepare for my future in many ways. From the outstanding teachers to the understanding counselors, this school has helped me grow into an adult. Throughout my four years at this school school, I have been taught many useful things that I will need in the future. However I do think that the school has room to improve. I believe there should be some more clubs or extra curricular activities. There were also some students that made learning, but those are in every school.
