I want to be unique.

Who will your child be when she grows up? Will she be creative? Confident? Unparalleled? At Laurel, we value independent thinking and respect for self, allowing girls to discover who they are and who they want to be. We celebrate each girl's strengths, nourishing her mind and character so that she is ready for the complicated world she will inherit. Our expectations are high; our enthusiasm for girls is boundless.
