KPW is a fantastic community and we have only heard wonderful things about LR. Our son looks forward to attending LR in the fall.

My kids are both in the Spanish Immersion Program at Laurel Ridge. We have left our home school to attend this program. We have always felt like outsiders to the school and many of the other parents. This attitude is apparent in the office staff, a most grumpy group of women. The school is large and recently redone so it is pretty nice and clean. The whole school has a high school clique feeling about it.
