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.

I attended Laurel School from 3rd grade through graduation, and I absolutely loved it. The community was incredible, and I remain in touch with many friends and faculty members alike. I was challenged and engaged academically, and found myself beyond prepared for college academics. I also appreciated the opportunity to explore and develop my passions for theater and the arts at Laurel. Throughout all of my years, I always felt like my teachers and administrators were invested in my growth and well being. Looking back over a decade after graduation, I could not have asked for a better school experience.
I have one child starting his third year at Laurel in the Pre-Kindergarten class and one child starting his first year in the Early Learners program. The teachers are incredible! They are so kind and really get to know your child. They communicate often on how things are going and are incredibly responsive when you have any questions. The overall atmosphere at the school is warm and kind and every child is known.
