  • my daughter went to Laurel wood for 4 years. Overall, it was pretty good, but I think the teachers need to be a little more educated & learn to teach the kids & not just pile homework on them & expect them to learn by themselves out of the books.

  • My daughter attended Laurelwood from Kinder through 6th grade. I would not have chosen any other school to send my kids to. My son is now in his second year at Laurelwood. The teachers are amazing and Mrs. Nichols is the best principal this school has had yet!
