St. Laurence High School Reviews

118 reviews
All Categories
Having graduated St. Laurence in the early 2000s and having gone back there for numerous alumni outings, I have seen a tremendous positive change in the academics, facilities, and sports programs. St. Laurence seems to have grasped the concept of a 21st century education with their innovative STEM curriculum. The building overall looks to be transformed into a 21st century academic setting with SMART Touch Boards, 1:1 iPads, and state of the art classroom seating. The sports programs have progressed to the point where all are competitive on a year in and year out basis, especially football and baseball. When my son and daughter are old enough they will become Vikings!

St. Laurence did what I think it needed as a High School, but not much more. While the school does a great job of keeping its students involved in their community and in the school’s community, its academics often seem to lack. They don’t give the students a lot of choice in the level academics they are placed in, with required AP classes for students in “high tiers” and no way to move out of those high tiers. Students in lower tiers can move up, but when they do, they are often thrown into classes they are unprepared for do to having missed a class they were meant to take first. The biggest issue with St. Laurence, however, is its complete loyalty to its sports programs. The arts have only recently begun to develop at the school, but they hardly get any administrative attention compared to the sports. Sports players are often able to get away with breaking rules and failing grades simply because the school doesn’t want to lose their best players.
Saint Laurence in my opinion was a fun, friendly, and diverse school. The teachers are there for you to help with any problems you have or any questions. The teachers also challenge and motivate you to do better then you did before to keep you from slacking or falling behind. There are also many different electives you can take to further your education or just to have fun. The atmosphere is very welcoming and pushes you to join clubs and plays to get a better high school experience. Laurence pushes there students to be the brightest and smartest they can be by offering students with other programs and mission trips. The school brings in speakers to talk to the students to talk about different job opportunities and what they do on a daily basis for work.
