    I have been more than pleasantly surprised at the quality of education my son is receiving at Lawrence School. He has consistently excelled in his two years there and the teachers and staff has been very supportive and caring. We heard many bad things about the school but believe in our City and knew we had to move forward with our son's education in the public school system. From our first experience at Lawrence with a caring committed supportive academically sound and advanced teachers we have been thrilled with our son's progress. He is in first grade and has been advanced to a 3rd grade reading class and his teacher keeps in touch with us consistently the lines of communication are always open. We love Lawrence School!
