About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Laurus Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Laurus Academy had 21 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Michigan average is 18 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Laurus Academy Reviews
Laurus is a great school academically and provides a safe learning environment for its students!
I've had 2 daughters graduate from Laurus Academy and now I have a son there in 2nd grade, their teachers are A+ as well as the administrative staff, I have never been more pleased to have my children at a school with so much caring for their academics and their well being. They are doing an A+ job there. If you are looking for a school where your children can excel, Laurus Academy is the place.
My children have been at Laurus since kindergarten and are in the 3rd & 4th grade now. Laurus is an excellent school with a dedicated staff of teachers and deans who work extremely hard to ensure that each child learns and prospers. The principal is a passionate professional who believes that every child can learn and works to challenge all students to be their best. The great thing is that the staff works hard to improve offerings each year. Parent communications have improved this year and dedicated parents ensure that programs are a success. One note of caution - when attending parent teacher conferences, come on time and early! Parents are very supportive at this school and the parent/teacher conferences are heavily attended. Exactly the kind of atmosphere I expect and enjoy.
My child has attended Laurus Academy for 4 years now. The only problem I have with the school is the parking lot,it's so small. As for education I can say I am truly satisfied. Oh I almost forgot Laurus could use a new secretary because one of them could really use some social skills I think her name was Ms. English. (maybe I caught her on a bad day or two)
I think Laurus is a fairly good school. They educate students not only in academics but morals as well. Which is something that is seriously lacking in the public school systems. However I am a little disappointed that they do not offer tutoring to all students. There parent communications could use some improvement as well.
