A Message from Hal Hensler, Head of School

The Laurel School provides a unique, nurturing environment where children with their own learning styles have the opportunity to develop skills that they are unable to obtain in conventional classrooms.
The Laurel School’s teachers use strength-based intervention to accommodate individual successes while constantly assessing each child’s individual learning plan. 
The Laurel School is a community of learners, teachers, and parents, working together to provide an environment where children learn, attain confidence, take risks, and speak effectively. I invite you to browse our website to learn more about the school and see the difference we provide. Please contact us to arrange a tour to see us in action!
Warm regards,

Hal Hensler

Head of School
