Laurel School District Reviews

There are very few teachers here that are actually concerned about their students outcome. In most cases they simply throw the information at you and could care less if you understand it or not. This means if you don’t have the resources or the motivation to get help elsewhere your toast. The school has recently made a lot of changes; a new principal, some different teachers and new counselors, don’t know how good that will do them but I wish them luck. I’m just glad to be finally graduating and moving on with my life.

Laurel High School is a school that that’s live for everyone. They have great things to get involved in such as the following: school clubs, sports,academic programs, and they help you with extra activities. My experience being at Laurel High School was great. They’re always going an extra mile for all of their students. We have great progress in academics and sports. We’re a B school with the states top high school in sports. Our school opens up to anybody in need. We’re full of positive energy and we’re ready for any challenge.
Laurel High School is an average school. Our academics have become extremely better and our sports teams, such as football, track, and basketball have made it to state a lot. Overall things such as the facilities and food could use some extreme help. To be honest, we eat the same food basically every day , which isn’t healthy to me. Also the restrooms are constantly dirty, but I blame that on the students bad hygiene. Overall, Laurel isn’t that bad, it just needs a little makeover.
