From our Head of School

The 2021-2022 school year is starting in just a couple of weeks, and I have never been more excited to welcome our Laurence students back to campus. What a difference a year makes! We are excited to bring new ideas and programs to Laurence, while other programs are returning after 18 months of the pandemic. And while we will still be wearing masks, I know that each of us will be smiling underneath them as we celebrate the fact that all of our students will be starting the school year learning in-person on a full-time basis.

We are just a few weeks away from those magical first moments of the school year – when the campus comes alive again and is filled with the laughter of children, along with the aspirations and optimism of a new year.  New families and new children infuse the school with energy and enthusiasm.  Returning children come back to their friends, academics, and activities, which they love so much.  As parents, we rest assured that they are getting the best education possible.
