Welcome to Laurel Hill Primary School, home of the Loggerheads! At Laurel Hill, our mission is to develop well-rounded learners in a child-centered, developmentally appropriate environment where each student is capable of fulfilling their potential.
As a primary school, we feel it is our responsibility to support and foster the growth of the whole child. We do that by creating warm, caring environments across our school; by offering rigorous instruction that is appropriate yet challenging; and by teaching valuable life skills such as responsibility, independence, and citizenship.
A typical day at Laurel Hill is a busy one! Students begin their day in their classrooms with our news show and a morning meeting. In addition to our core subjects, each grade level has a curriculum dedicated to social-emotional learning. Students also have the opportunity each day to visit 1 of 5 special areas- music, art, PE, media, and technology. The skills learned in these classes are also woven into their learning in the classroom, and teachers often collaborate with others across content areas to provide engaging, hands-on learning experiences. Our students have daily access to 4 playgrounds and a trail with physical fitness stations, with plenty of time for them to play and explore. In addition, students also receive monthly lessons from our guidance counselor on topics ranging from self-control to self-esteem to bullying prevention. We also recently just opened our Action Based Learning lab, which allows students to learn math and language arts content while engaging in physical activity. Our mission is to develop well-rounded learners, and our staff work tirelessly to create ample opportunities for them to grow and succeed.
We have a building full of highly qualified, dedicated educators, and we have low teacher turnover. Our school has been accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children since 2008, and is considered the gold standard for early childhood education. We also have a very active PTA that supports our school and our teachers. Laurel Hill also has created partnerships with businesses in our community, including Mex-1, Chick Fil A, and others. Quite simply, Laurel Hill is a place where teachers, students, and families want to be.
