My two children attended this school this past year. Friendly parents, staff and children. School follows all District rules. Unfortunately, school does not foster a sense of community with zero after school events hosted at the school. Once per month McDonald's night is it. Seagate and Pelican Marsh have higher volunteer and donation levels. Heavy focus on remediation, but not on highly performing students (except gifted, they get their own class which creates average to below average performance in remaining classes). School has a "good" reputation but this is definitely not a "great" school. Disappointed. Everyone is nice but they are not doing what other schools are able to accomplish which is disappointing and somewhat surprising considering the affluence in the area.

Administrators are very approachable and warm! They interact throughout the day with students in positive ways. This is my third year as a parent at Laurel Oak. I was an elementary school teacher before moving to Florida so I only sought out the best schools for my children to attend. My children have had wonderful teachers who truly care. I haven't been disappointed! There are many volunteers at this school and parents are very involved.

Huge lice problem at LOE!Teachers are not allowed to inform parents about lice outbreaks. Teachers are not provided with any ways to help curb the problem. Example: ALL students use the same set of four or five headphones at the computers in the classroom. Nurse will call parent about lice in your child's hair, but can't require you pick them up or treat it.All backpacks are lumped together, and students use same headphones in Computers class. Admistration is too worried about privacy laws instead of actually coming up with ways to help this problem. They have our hands tied.

Shocked this school is rated so highly! Have volunteered for years, and have seen this school decline RAPIDLY due to the lack of good administration and POOR teaching. I had two daughters in school at LOE and a little girl at home about to start pre-k. Moved my older two to private due to the HUGE LACK of classtime being spent on actually education. We are not the only ones leaving either several in our neighborhood alone have pulled their kids from LOE recently. These are 0(outstanding) or A students who are leaving. Over 325 students on the playground at once, and only one assistant to supervise. Over 3 classes combine together to go to related arts with only ONE teacher except for PE or gym where they will have two teachers and even MORE students. Even more shocking NOT all the teachers are certified to teach, they don't tell you that until you ask, just like the bullying on the playground where I found out ONLY one assistant is watching 325 students at one time. Get out while you can! The principal is set to retire soon, and the AP is a joke! Hopefully, they will place the Assistant Principal elsewhere, and bring in NEW SMARTER leaders! This school is a nightmare!

My kids have just started at this school this year after being in a private school. We are very happy with the academics ata this school and the staff and would have switched much sooner if we had known it was this good. And our kids love it!

I have been at Laurel Oak for 5 years now and each year I am more delighted with the experience my children are having. It is a very large school but safety and structure are priorities. If you want to be involved with your school, you are welcome here at Laurel Oak.

My experience with Laurel Oak Elementary has been excellent. The teachers, assistants,Deans and Principals are very hands on with the children. The atmosphere is friendly, cooperative and very positive. A great many of the parents volunteer on a weekly basis giving another dimension of support to the school. There are plenty of activities and opportunities for the children to participate and learn in a caring and pleasant environment.

Quality of academic program was good. Second language (italian) was taught starting in grade K. Choice of two onsite after school programs. Sports Camp offered good extracurricular activities ie gymnastics, cheerleading, soccer, baton twirling practice that my daughter enjoyed. Parents welcome in classroom and to come for lunch in courtyard with child and up to three friends. Both teachers and administrative staff very accessible. No tolerance bullying policy with immediate intervention by trained school counselor. Good holiday activities for the whole school.

I think Laurel Oak is a good school. I think that it is in need of some extra support from teacher aids or para professionals in the classroom.The children that are gifted or need some resource help could use some support. The Collier County School Board needs to address this issue.
