LHS is a wonderful school to enroll in if you are self motivated. In LHS you can take public school classes,college classes, or do a class with the other students in LHS ,and if you want one by yourself with state guidelines and the teachers help. I was a student at LHS and it really taught me how to get self movtivated and the consequences if you are not. When it comes to preparing for college LHS is a great tool. Every semester you have to do a research paper and every grade older you get the more pages are required for you paper , it really gives you a feeling for college writing. Also in regular public schools you have teachers there all the time to say get your work done.... in laurel you are also told that but not as much... which reminds me of how in college your teachers are not going to sit and give you constant reminders ...... so it helps you prepare for college in that way also. the administrator of laurel is also the best i have ever had the pleasure to know!

This charter school is careful about its students. Schedules and study plans are created for self directed student work, in all subjects that interest an individual. Low pressure, yet firm direction and guidance are key in the success of its members. Regular HS classes are part of the agenda, when they suit a person's requirements for music, or any other specific direction the student wishes. It has made stronger, more broad minded people of both my sons. All the students at Laurel do regular community based, helping activities. They made gardens for the elderly, raise funds or poverty relief, gather materials for cancer rehab, and participate in International Awareness day.The school director is fun, gracious, and always there for each one of her people. This is a great idea. I really hope it goes on forever.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
