The Laurel School
Title Background
Our Students

Our students are our primary responsibility and concern here at The Laurel School. We serve students who have average to above-average intelligence but who might struggle in the traditional school setting because of their learning style. Our teachers and staff are experts in the methodologies that draw these difficult-to-reach students into the learning process.

We focus on the whole student—academic knowledge, social skills competency, and, above all, self-confidence. The students in our charge learn to love learning!

The Laurel School’s students typically have difficulty in a traditional classroom. Many have been diagnosed with:


  • Dyscalculia
  • Dyslexia
  • Central Auditory Processing Deficits
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Nonverbal Learning Disabilities (NLD)
  • Speech and Language impairments
  • Expressive
  • Recessive
  • Sensory Integration Dysfunction
  • High functioning autism (Asperger’s)
  • Pervasive Development Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS)

Laurel’s inclusive, compassionate, and supportive classroom environment is one of understanding and flexibility that allows every student to work within his or her own needs and continue to grow socially, emotionally, and academically.
