Laurel Springs School
- Online School
- Ojai, CA
Parent: The curriculum is rigorous and creative. I'd say it's a lot more demanding than our public school. Decent amount of written work & short projects w/ less multiple choice. Pleased with amount of critical thinking required. I'd say it's about 6 hours/day of work with an all honors course load.
The student-teacher relationship is as good/better than our brick and mortar school. Teachers are very friendly and helpful. A few instances where I’ve heard child on a call with staff at 9:00 working through a problem. Remarkable!
Good club options and an online social network for older kids.
Elective choices are fantastic.
Warning: Semester exams are intense and difficult. Wish they could somehow grade on curve and help kids prepare more.
Wish they offered foreign language options beyond level 4. And activities like Debate Club met more regularly. 1xmo meetings make it harder to form friendships.
Overall, we highly recommend Laurel Springs and are so grateful to have found the school!
