Laurel is not the safest place. There are many thefts that go on in that town. There is also a lot of partying. The academics at the public school are not very good. The teachers don't care if students pass or fail. They are very into their sports and that is it. However, it does have a very small town feel which is nice.

A friendly town that has two grocery stores, schools for youth aged children, many churches and a great community. Beautiful little town that is not far from Billings,MT.
The cost of living here is VERY cheap! The houses are very good quality, and most properties are filled with families. My entire town is safe for living, the only part of town with lesser quality homes is the south side, but they are still nice quality houses.
