The early years are a time for exploration, emotional growth, physical development, and fun. In elementary school, we nurture the natural love of learning with caring teachers and stimulating curriculum. Our project- based elementary curriculum, which is available to all students in kindergarten through 5th grade, integrates classic literary themes across all subject areas. Beginning in the 4th grade, students can begin taking text-based courses, and in 5th grade, students have the additional option of online courses. Laurel Springs also offers a variety of virtual clubs for our Kindergarten through 6th grade students. This opportunity gives them a chance to share interests and interact with classmates once a month with a teacher providing an exciting learning experience sharing their passion for the club’s theme. Laurel Springs students emerge from the K–5 program with the foundation necessary to handle more challenging middle school work.
Middle School, Grades 6– 8
As students progress into their middle school years, our college prep program builds self-esteem and lays the groundwork for high school. Students in 6th through 8th grades can select project-based, text-based, or online courses or may choose a combination of curriculum options as needed to create an optimal learning experience. In addition, Laurel Springs offers opportunities for students to participate in our Gifted & Talented Academy starting in 6th grade. Beginning in 7th grade, students are eligible to join our online social network. The middle school counselor plays a key role in keeping students focused and on track, supporting academic success.
Join us for our next virtual open house to learn more about how Laurel Springs School can be an excellent match for your family.
National Junior Honor Society
The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) was founded to acknowledge outstanding middle school students. This program honors students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, character, and citizenship. The Laurel Springs chapter of NJHS is open to all eligible students, beginning in 7th grade, who meet scholastic and character requirements. NJHS not only recognizes students for their accomplishments but challenges them to continue their achievements through active involvement in school activities and community service.
