Laurel Highlands School District Reviews

I have seen a lot of change in Laurel Highlands over the last several years. My son, who has special needs, received a lot of care and attentiveness from his teachers. There were a few that could try harder, but what school district doesn't have that. The school was always beautifully decorated for the holidays. The teachers did a great job with the trunk or treat and family reading night activities. Overall, this was a great place for my son to attend. Unfortunately, we moved out of the district and really miss the great people.

I've had an overall positive experience during my time at LH. I've had a total of 2 teachers that weren't so great, but the rest were very good and significantly contributed to my education. They were helpful and seem to care about their students. My guidance counsellors were helpful through middle and high school. The gifted program helped me accelerate through high school, and my gifted teacher from middle school continues to be a mentor to me after middle school. I am glad I attended LH, and I'm proud to be a Mustang!
I went to this school district starting in 5th grade. At the time this school district was a little ways above average, then slowly started becoming a below overage kind of place. The schools themselves were old and needed a remodel. Shortly after I entered the highschool, the district got a grant for remodeling. The renovations seer completed after I had graduated. The academics fluctuated between good and bad, it depended on the teacher really.... Overall it's just a modern day school district trying to keep up with the rapidly changing economy that surrounds it.
