Happy Birthday

By a Former Student on

Wishing you a great year full of fun surprises, great grades and loads of smiles on all your young students and wonderful teachers. Have a Happy 50th !!
An ancient student...

This school is like a trailer park. Every structure is dilapidated. No air conditioning in any classroom. But the air conditioning in the administrators' office is running even on weekends (based on my and several other parents' observations). No cafeteria for students from first grade to the fifth grade. That means: almost all students have to sit outside beside the playground, shivering in winter and spring and being scorched in summer and the fall.
If you expect the administrators there to guard the best interests of the students, perish your thoughts. Getting the very basics, such as air conditioning and cafeteria, is like luxury for all Laurelwood students. Comfort is only for the administrators. I won't be surprised to see some students get heat strokes. I am more concerned about tree branches falling on the kids when they are eating lunches under the big trees.
Don't expect anything from the administrators. Nothing will be done to protect the interests of the students.
Does Education.com post negative reviews? If yes, how come my last review was deleted.

This school has more than excellent teachers, it has a wonderful community of parents supporting it as well. My son loves to go to school and has nothing but great things to say about his daily experiences. While the classes are a bit large, the staff has handled it very well and many parents have stepped up to volunteer.

Teachers and parents make a school; without them there is nothing but chairs and books.  Laurelwood Elementary has a crew of devoted teachers and administrators, and a core of parents who always seem to "be there" chipping in.  My children tally up about 20 years of attendance here.
