    "My son Andy is moving into the First Grade after an absolutely amazing Kindergarten year. He has become an amazingly social, well rounded child under Laurel's tender, loving care. He is now a social butterfly and very popular! This is a big change from the kid who started there. He really has a big personality now too. His teachers have been amazing! The principle really makes himself available to families and gets to know every child personally. The kids actually enjoy going to the principles office! As a parent, i am so grateful to this school and all it has done. They do individualized curriculum for every child and they do it very well. I adore this school!"

    "The Laurel School occupies a niche all its own, as the only K-8 private school in San Francisco for kids with learning differences. The small class sizes and individual attention make an incredible difference for children who would be lost in a larger public or parochial setting. Weekly drama classes and the annual musical have given my child terrific self-confidence, and a love of performance and making people laugh. We have been at the school for 7 years, and can attest to its fantastic program."

    "I am a grandmother of a six year old who attended kindergarten from September until Wed. June 5,2013. A week and a half before the end of the school year. My grandson has neurological issues that intererfere at times with his emotional control. We were insured by Hal Hensler the principal prior to admission that that they could handle this- We told him verbally and in writing what the issues were. On Wednesday my six year old was permanently suspended from the school which he loved. He was not allowed to clean out his cubby, say goodbye to his classmates or the teacher whom he adored. THIS SIX YEAR OLD HAS A BROKEN HEART. HE DOESNT UNDERSTAND WHY HE CAN'T GO BACK AND OTHERS CAN AND WANTS TO KNOW IF THEY WILL GIVE HIM A GOING AWAY PARTY. Anyone who has any idea how to deal with children would have worked with us to come up with a plan so this little boy could maintain his dignity and have some closure on his year experience. We would have paid for a sitter or done it ourselves. The principal Hal Hensler behaved in a very brutal, uncaring, ABUSIVE way to a six year old. . HE BROKE HIS HEART( and mine too) THE LAUREL SCHOOL HAS TOTALLY FAILED MY GRANSDSON AND OUR FAMILY."

    "I recently spoke with the Head of School and The Laurel School has applied for accreditation through the California Association of Independent Schools in conjunction with the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and should be conducting the accreditation procedures in the spring of 2013. Also, I have been told that all of Laurel's core teachers have special education degrees or have worked with special needs students for many years!"

    "My son has been a student at Laurel for 5 years, and our family's experience has been wonderful. The caring and dedicated teachers go the extra mile to work with kids that have different learning challenges and styles. In addition to teaching a curriculum in line with state standards, Laurel provides daily PE and weekly drama, movement and art classes for the kids. Laurel is a godsend for parents seeking a supportive school and community for their child."
