    About Us

    Believing all children must be challenged to maximize their potential, Laurelwood's highly talented staff offers its students a strong academic program with an emphasis on the basic subjects of language arts, mathematics, social studies and science, along with technology, and visual/performing arts lessons/activities sponsored by our local PTA.  Equally important to Laurelwood staff is the social development of each child, the attainment of a strong self-concept, and a basic human respect and tolerance for others.  Laurelwood learners are safe, respectful and responsible.  As an increasingly diverse community with over thirty languages spoken and a student body of over 700, Laurelwood is proud to partner with an active parent and business community.  Annual multi-cultural events include booths from fifteen countries and dance performances from around the world.  Academic goals and objectives based on State Standards and SCUSD Standards are planned annually and are reflected in Laurelwood's single plan for student achievement.
