Bronze medal


Laurel Hill is an elementary school serving grades K-6. I had three children attend and can say that we were very pleased at each grade level. The school is inviting but secure. The office staff are welcoming and can often be found escorting a tardy child to his classroom in the early morning. The administration is responsive. There is one Principal and two assistant principals based on upper and lower elementary. The library is nice, there is an elevator in the building as it is two story. There are two guidance counselors and a large cafeteria. We were pleased with our children's time at LHES

  • Recommendations: Silverbrook
  • What did you like? The teachers. Mrs. Mitchell in fifth grade made such a lasting impact on our daughter we will never forget her.
  • What did you dislike? It was very very large and very diverse. At times my middle son had trouble on the bus, I wish that the dismissal time was more better staffed to monitor all the children waiting to get home each day.
