Lawrence School is truly the hidden gem of Middletown. From the administration, to the teachers to the staff, everyone is so kind and caring. It puts my mind at ease knowing my children are in such great hands!

Lawrence School is one of the best friendly school, anybody in there will never feel like new, everybody answers you with a good big smile. They have so many encouraging and fun activities for the students. They give a strong basement for every student for them to be strong in everything. Apart from studies they gym is the fun part, every student in there love the gym time. Also as a parent I feel happy to be a part of the school, I have been able to share in my opinions & ideas. Every interested parent are given opportunity to volunteer their part . Have always felt as the best elementary school so far.

My son and I cried together because he had to transfer out of this school. Th principal, Ms. M***i, and her dedicated staff have provided a wonderful experiece for my son, and our entire family. This level of dedication is observed by every employee in the building. I have witnessed the custodian encouraging my son to practice good citizenship. The cafeteria workers know the kids by name, and know what my child will not eat. Even the YMCA-run Kids Korner before and after care program is exceptional at this site. *A special note deserves to be written for Ms. G*****s, the 1st grade teacher who blew my son's mind with her knowledge of the worl. She changed his perspective on learning and life in a way that will be with him forever. This school is GROSSLY underrated.

This school is under rated. The school has welcoming and caring astompere, just like a big family. Principal Mrs. Macri is very nice and dedicated. Kids love her. Teachers are excellent, eg Mrs. Landell and Mrs. Weitz, they are willing to go to extra miles to teach my boy according to his individual potentials... Overall, the principle and teachers in this school are top-notch!!!

Lawrence is an great school but has room for improvement. Overall, the teachers are great and love the principal. She is passionate and knows every kid by name. I also recommend the on-site before and after school program.

The variety of school programs provided at Lawrence School is fantastic. The principle has been assertive in making this elementary school a role model for other schools to follow from the grant programs, to the pilot program for the foreign language program. I'm pround to have my children attend Lawrence School.

The principal of this school is one of the most involved and pasionate principals I have ever's amazing how he makes it a point to know all his students and parents by name.

Lawrence is run by a man who thinks the parents are stupid and the only way to disipline a child is to scream at them. He does not like parents in the school because once they see what actually goes on in there he inevitably ends up with a complaint. The true class size is 22-26 students per class in 4 years I have never seen less!
