    My son attends this school through the Trailblazers program. This school definitely has its ups and downs. More downs I would say than ups so I'll have to rate this school with simply 2 stars. The office staff can be extremely rude and unprofessional at times. But the faculty seems to be friendly and some actually do care about their students.

    Rating this school a ZERO!!!! Laburnum E.S. has many downfalls than they do positive. Teachers some stoop down to the kids level as if they are friends instead being the adult role model. The new principal is not personable to students. She chooses her own favorite student rather than being an overall liking to all!! Their rules and guidelines are less likely to be supported. Their secretaries are rude. Their cafeteria monitors treat the kids as if they are jail students by yelling at them. Many teachers don't get the recognition they deserve. As I stated the principal is not an equal opportunist instead she delegates the work and never stands behind her own students/parents. Why should parents not feel welcome? Why should a principal not ask for higher output and set the standards high for her staff. It may be her first year but she needs to regroup and construct a better team. Less talk about what she is going to do and more action!!

    MY children attended this school for 5 years and we have had our ups and downs here. there are awesome teachers there as well as some teachers that need to go back to school. The faculty is professional and will look our for their kids. more parents need to be involved with their kids causea few of the students are awful because lack of parenting but the shinning star students and teachers far out weigh the latter.

    The students are the best and the teachers/staff are the hardest working educators there are!

    Well I am very pleased with Laburnum. My daugther started in Kindergarten and she has learned alot. She is now going to the 2nd grade and has made excellent progress. She has never had a problem with bullying or anything like that. Her first grade teacher was wonderful and has taught my daughter well. I am very impressed with her progress and can't wait for her to succeed more. My four year old will be attending this year after going to private school but I like this school and I think she will really like it and will do really well there.

    For a parent of three which two of my children attend Laburnum Elementary School I am very very disappointed. My children have attended other schools and never have I had a problem with bullying negativity and down right disrespect for other human beings as a whole like I have discovered at Laburnum. I know every school has it's issues but none like I have seen there. If you have a child that is a good citizen and does well academically in school I recommend you stay as far away from Laburnum Elementary as possible. Especially if you don't want you child(ren) see the result of a world of parents who just don't take the time to raise their children. I hope you never have to be faced with even the possibility of having your child(ren) have to go there.

    This school is a wonderful place for your children to learn! Both the Principal and Vice Principal has always demonstrated great leadership. The uniform policy at this school is also a pleasure. Besides excellent teaching methods the children are taught to demonstrate (at all times) great pride and excellent citizenship.
