Laurel Junior/Senior High School Reviews

I would highly recommend Laurel Jr/Sr Highschool to all families! I moved to Laurel in 10th grade to take care of my grandmother. My grandmother was diagnosed with Pullmonary Fibrosis on December 15th, 2013 and given only a few years to live. We moved into her house and built her on a mother in law suite to be as comfortable as possible. I would spend my every afternoon being with her and helping her. The thought of moving to another school seemed extremely hard and nerve racking. Although, Laurel Highschool made things a thousand times easy and were very helpful! They supported me through everything! Any time I had any questions someone would be right by my side helping me. I made many life long friends! Everyone was so caring and many even supoorted me at my grandmas funeral on November 27th, 2015. I would highly recommend any family to move to Laurel Jr/Sr Highschool for their children!

Most of the teachers are great and would be willing to help you at the drop of a hat! The teachers make classes fun and enjoyable with a diverse range of activities. Laurel has a great amount of school spirit. Their arts department is very strong with a large amount of outstanding artists, musicians, with students who are dedicated in their work. A great school worth attending!
Most classes are small, an average of 15-20 students per class. Very sociable, friendly, relatable, great teachers! Laurel offers activities and clubs such as, FFA, NHS, FBLA and more! We have great athletic coaches. Our teams usually have successful sporting seasons!
