Laurel School District Reviews

I was fun freshman year then it got very boring is was the same thing everyday over and over again. Bullying is a major problem at Laurel I have seen children cry due to the bullying, and the teachers and administrators do nothing. I feel like sometimes I’m in a prison, we have no type of liberty. But I have found wonderful teachers that I very much look up to, I enjoy the deducation of most of my teachers. I made wonderful friends.

This school district is beyond reproach in diversity, proactive efforts to prevent bullying, and the teachers love of teaching.
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.
