    I absolutely love Laurel. Between the teacher-student relationships, the classes, and the overall environment, I feel that Laurel is the best school I could possibly be at! The teachers love it when students meet with them; when you roam the hallways you are sure to see students meeting with teachers about an upcoming test or just to ask them a question. I love how the teachers available and willing to help.
    Laurel has the perfect class sizes. Each grade in the upper school consists of about 70 girls, and the classes will never have more than 18 kids.The small classes allow students to get close to their teacher, and the teacher to get close to their students.
    Overall, Laurel is an amazing place with a welcoming community. Everyone is so kind and friendly. I remembered when I toured Laurel, the girls were so excited to have me there. This is one of the biggest reasons why I chose Laurel.

    Laurel is an amazing all girls school! Majority of teachers and staff members are very friendly and are willing to help you whenever you need help! The sciences are not the best for 5th-9th grade, but after that, it only gets better. Best classes include English, the Maths, and History. The food is average quality, but the taste is good.
    We are so happy we chose Laurel as a high school for our daughter. We looked at several schools and decided on Laurel because of its well rounded approach to teaching that is designed specifically for girls. We have found that in addition to an excellent academic program and fantastic teachers and administrators, it also has an overall great culture and social environment. We easily recommend it to other families looking for a school for their daughter(s).
