Laurel School District Reviews

3 reviews
My overall experience I guess would be pretty average. I am the student council president and every class I ever wanted to take is available. I have run cross country for years. The teachers at the school are really cool. The administration is relatively young which helps when dealing with student body issues. I have gone to Laurel my entire student life and I generally have no complaints. I have a close group of friends and we all enjoy supporting each other in and out of school.

The school's teachers are very involved and willing to sacrifice in order to help their students, which makes most of the school's classes easy to get into and learn. The food could be better, and the computers are old, however plentiful. Overall, Laurel was a great school to begin my academic expedition.
I liked it when we didn't have a new superintendent. he has ruined everything for our school and it has gone downhill.
