    Laurens Elementary is a great school and I have an autistic son and the teachers are wonderful for helping him learn and he loves going to school.

    I believe that Laurens Elementary School is an excellent school and is dedicated to each individual child. I have a special needs child and she has her every need met while at school. Every year that she has been at Laurens Elementary she has had awesome and compassionate teachers that are willing to go the extra mile to assist her in learning and growing. My child is Autisic and has many other issues that get in her way but the staff at Laurens Elementary work hard to meet her needs daily. My daughter loves going to school and I believe this is because of the loving and professional staff at Laurens Elementary.
