Laurel Elementary School is located in the foothills of East Oakland. Our campus serves a densely-populated, ethnically-diverse, predominately working-class neighborhood. Our mission is to improve students' academic achievement in a safe, stimulating, and nurturing environment where the needs of the whole child are met. In addition to our rigorous core instructional program and our science focus, we offer enrichment classes including dance, music, art, and technology. We also offer an afterschool program for grades two through five that has both an academic and enrichment component. Join our school community and be a part of Laurel Pride!
