Best school ever! Seen larger schools and they just don't give the students the one on one like Laurel Hill.

As a parent and a child who attended 7 years. Academics are good. Would like to have seen more extracurricular activities. Facility is very neat/tidy. School teachers are great but do not communicate with parents and let them know about extreme changes in grades. School has changed principals 4 times in 7 years. Majority of students are WONDERFUL! However, my child was hit by a student who's parent was also a staff member of the school and no punishment. Another student also also sexually harrassed and assaulted my child and nothing good came of it. Another family member of mine was also the victim of TWO fights. One physical. Another was when students threw rocks at him. Principal refuses to hear parents side of explanations. School Resource Officer brown noses principals and does not appear to provide a safe environment for students. I pulled my child out Friday and not to return.
