This is a wonderful school. My children have attented other schools that were bigger, but they never seemed to fit in. Here, all of the kids get along with each other and now they have many friends. At LHS, the teachers still believe in calling home when my child's academic progress falls behind in their class. Mrs. Sexton and the staff are friendly and always remember you by name. They know whose child goes with which parent. The school is not big enough to host a lot of sports, but that is okay because the kids here do not mind. They have a great basketball team, drama club, and baseball. My kids will not go anywhere other than Laurel Hill. --Kelsie Reeves, parent

I love LHS. This was my first year attending the school and it was great. I was in a larger environment at my old school and coming here was a change.In stead of having over 600 students in just grades k-5, LHS has about 450 kids grades preK-12. The teachers here are also very hands on. If you need help with any thing, the teachers are right there to give you help. Also, Mr. McSween, Mrs. Sexton, and Officer Joe make a great team. I am really looking forward to my next year an LHS. Go Hoboes!

Laurel hill is a great school. It is one not so big (considering the 450 enrolled) family that you love to see everyday. At laurel hill you do not dread getting up because you know you are goin to a comfortable, clean, family style enviornment. It isnt as big as neigboring crestview, but that is the best thing about it.It is also nice to be able to have good friendships with not only your class, but classes below and above you.I wouldnt trade my 4 years at LH for anything.

Laurel Hill is a very clean environment. Students are well behave and groomed. Everyone there is really nice. I have never been to a school that your teacher as your friend. Laurel Hill is a fun place to learn and a great school.

My children have attended Laurel Hill School on waiver for over three years now. This means that rather than attend an Alabama school where standards are behind three years they can attend a school where expectations are the highest. Mc Sween, Nobles & the staff are strict yet compassionate and uphold standards that many schools have forgotten. As for sports over riding their vision. I do not see how this is possible as they do not have the same programs available so our children are not blinded by the football seasons that most other students are privy to. Balance of structure compassion and a true love for our kids are what make this a great school. Congratulations to Laurel Hills newest rising star, Mrs. Sabine Lyons in the Art department; we as parents are proud to have you!

I too, attended LHS. I was there from kindergarten until I graduated. LHS does have things under control. The students are kept in line, and the administrators are wonderful. McSween and Nobles make a great team. It is a clean, safe environment, and most of the teachers make sure the kids that want to learn do learn. A well-known quote from a teacher who cares: 'chose to remember!' (homework, formulas, etc.) LHS is an outstanding school.

This school in my opinion, does not have their priorities in line. Their sports are at the top of their 'to do ' lists and academics are not put first. The student are not behaved at this school and the faculty needs to gain control of the students. They seem to do what they please and it is not organized at all.

I attended LHS for 10 years and I can honestly say that there is not a better school in Okaloosa County. Laurel Hill, has some of the most excellent teachers in the field and are amoung the most caring. There is not a moment during my school experience at LHS that I did not feel at home. The teachers where more than just teachers, they were all a friend and fill in parent at one point in time. Since, I have graduated LHS and moved on, I have never forgotten just how important attending a small school can actually be. LHS may be a small school and it may not offer as many programs as the bigger schools, but everyone knows one another and is able to count on each other when there is a time of need. I would reccommmend any parent to send their children to LHS.
