This school very bad for students who need learn English. The classes for learn English are very big and students can not learn good at Lawrence school.



- a
Great teachers and great facilities. The school also has made an effort in having good communication wth parents.

Compared to other Brookline schools Lawrence is below average. This school does not offer school lunches for Kindergartners, and their programs (EDP and after-school activities) offer very small number of spots. We have friends in three other Brookline schools and they appear to have way more resources than Lawrence. in addition after-school activities do not pickup K grade after school - guardians have to do that - unless one *won* a spot at EDP. We understand that there have to be some compromises made (lunches, etc) due to large number of students, however low number of after-school activities points to poor planning we think.

Lawrence is a great school with a diverse student body, excellent academics, committed parents, and supportive teachers who are passionate about their work and strive to bring out the best in each student. The school's excellent facilities and grounds, coupled with its numerous extracurricular activities and PTO events, give students every opportunity to make the most of their academic experience.



- a
It's a great community school where parents, teachers, and administrators strive together to make the school a wonderful learning experience.

I love this school. It has great kids and great teachers. It runs preschool- 8 grade. it is newly re-done with a great playground and inside the school it has everything. 2 gyms, music room, large auditorium and a great lunch room. The teachers are well taught and supportive toward students. this school gives students a great chance to succeed in the outside world.



- a
The school's culture is totally teacher centered, not child centered. There is a huge lack of motivation to help kids reach their full potential. Basically, there is no value added to the student. Students' ability remain the same year after year and there is little to no growth in their academic ability. Teachers have way too much autonomy around curriculum and assessments. They have poor specials teachers for the music and the arts.
