  • laura c saunders is a very good school that teaches your kid about discipline and behavior. the school is a very nice school. before it was a d after we got our new principal it became a "c" school and im very proud of the school. and it's not the school's fault, it's the kids in the school.

  • Hello everyone,
    I am very concerned about this school and those who are in charge. Today I took my child to school and I was not happy with what I saw there. Close to his class room there was trash all over, walls very dirty and school is currently a C school. School playground looks just horrible, is just depressing how dirty this school is and nobody has done anything to fix this problems. I now understand why my kid is not motivated to go to school.
