Teachers in a small school are really there for you. All of the teachers know each and every student in the school and genuinely care about the students. There are many field trips available throughout the school and are usually open to most students. What is one of the best reasons for attending a small school is that the student can participate in multiple activities. Students have the opportunity to be involved in sports, band, chorus, drama, key club, or a multitude of other school activities that are run by teachers and school staff.

Our teachers all have their own unique style that involves watching movies, cooking, field trips, interactive projects and anything that is required to help each student learn. Laurens Central School is a great school.
The teachers are very proficient and excel in their area of teaching. The curriculum is just changing to accommodate the "core curriculum" however has been very good. Teachers are always available to assist students and the workload is very reasonable as teachers also realize the importance of involvement in non-academic area also. Due to the class size students can always be a part of the popular classes. This school excels in allowing students to take college level courses and most seniors graduate high school with about 21 - 27 college credits.
