Our Curricular Philosophy
To meet the needs of Laurel students, three kinds of learning in particular distinguish our curriculum: experiential, interdisciplinary and community-based. Experiential learning asks girls to be active rather than passive–students learn by doing. Interdisciplinary learning takes many forms and occurs throughout the Laurel curriculum. Connections to other disciplines help girls understand that the subjects they study do not exist in a vacuum, nor are they naturally discrete entities. Community-based learning allows students to use both interdisciplinary and experiential methods to further their understanding of the role they play in the world.
