Laurel School District Reviews

I feel as though some staff truly care about the students while others just view their job as a job and don’t particarilt care for the students as they should. Administration seems to be more focused on the appearance of the school district rather than the lives of the students within. It feels as though they want to push us through school without truly preparing us for the college life. I would like to see this change, at least for the better of younger generations.

My experience at Laurel High School was it like any other experience I had another schools. Laurel High School is a very diverse School. Has many programs and activities and clubs that you can join and you won't be judged by it. The teachers at her school try their best to make sure everyone succeeds they you can stay after school to help us. If they see you struggling don't have a private conversation with you and create a plan to help you pass. The guidance counselors try their 100% to talk to every student about college. They ask us what college we want to go to and then tell you what you need to get into the college, they show us resources that could help us in the future they want the best for us.
Laurel was a great school, and i had plenty of fun and good opportunities with my education. The teachers and administrators were very helpful, I don’t see any flaws the school would have to change
