Laurens County School District No. 55 Reviews

Although I have attended Laurens District 55 High School for two years, I have experienced a plethora of different, amazing, and subpar circumstances. To begin with, the opportunities at Laurens are amazing, such as the GEARUP grant program, free tutoring programs, out-of-state opportunities, and a variety of assessments to take to prepare you for college. On the other hand, there are the stances where learning isn’t the initial priority at school, and passing the class is deemed more important than retaining critical information. Not only that, but the issue of safety has occurred several times recently, with constant confrontations, and weapons on campus. However, the police and administration squad are quick to handle the predicaments and implement a safe atmosphere in the school. Overall, although there are several downfalls to Laurens District High School, the amazing opportunities and support from the administration allow me to achieve my goals and become successful in life.

L55 is a fantastic school! The teachers are caring and supportive. The academics are challenging and we have some of the most talented, creative and driven students in the nation. I had an amazing 4 years in Laurens 55.
I was a student at Laurens District 55 ever since I started 5k. I am glad to call this district my school. The teachers of this district truly care about all the students. Not only that but the administrators interact with the parents to help improve what is yet to be. The student body of all age is the best. We all do what is told both in class and to help give to the community. From Ford Elementary, Sanders Middle, up to LDHS the school district has changed in a good way. Safety procedures are in place, and the teachers have developed fun ways to help the students interact with one another. To me, the thing that I like the most is that, by the time we get to the high school, all the teachers make sure that every student is on the right path for their future. Without them, I would have never got this far in school. I am thankful to all my teachers for being there for me when I needed it.
