My daughter had some fantastic teachers for 5th & 6th grade at Laurin but for 7th grade the teachers fell short. I was not impressed and my daughter had homework almost every single night throughout the entire 2011/2012 school year. I think by the end of the school year she was overwelmed and exhausted. Some of the teachers cramed everything in for the last two weeks of school.
Most teachers are terrible about communicating with the parents. School could definitely benefit from a principal who does what is right to make this school better!!
The Best Vancouver, Wa home town school for 50+ years with proof to back it up!
It is innovative and cares about the children. It also has healthy choices available in the cafeteria.
School could be run a little bit better, some of the teachers need some help!
The new school counselor is amazing! She is only there part time and works above and beyond the call of duty to show kids she cares. There are a couple of teachers who are an uphill battle, but most staff is awesome. Office staff are wonderful! It is not Laurins fault that the district does not give them what they need as far as time/buildings etc.

The recess duty's are rude to the students and the lunches are way to short. The students stand in line for lunch, and by the time they get it and find a place to sit down, they don't have anytime to eat. Teacher's are not that bad, but the school itself is in dessperate need of reconstruction.
