Open Quote Laurel Hill is a great elementary school, our daughter has been very happy here and has developed a love for learning at this school. They are teaching her valuable skills that will serve her well during her life, and she is a happy student. I truly believe that is the key to success for all children, to be happy and to develop a love of learning. Close Quote

Open Quote The school has too many students that are disruptive in class and waste the time of the teachers and principals. Students that should be removed to a "special" class for trouble makers are not. Control of students is inadequate. Close Quote

Open Quote I'm not a supporter of the new no homework policy. Homework allowed me to be more involved in what my children were learning in class, and helped me reinforce what was already taught. I no longer have that opportunity. My children's grades reflect how damaging this new rule can be. They performed much better with homework. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
