We know girls - how they learn, think and feel. ~

Since 1896, we have taught girls to claim their voices and develop as leaders. ~
Girls thrive in our compassionate community. ~
In this atmosphere, charged with intellectual vitality,
bright girls embrace challenges in academics, arts, and athletics. ~
Attuned to learning styles, we honor each individual
as she builds strengths and fulfills her promise.
Our 140-acre Butler Campus offers exceptional opportunities
for experiential education.
Laurel School - where girls dream, dare and do!   

Our students delight in intellectual and physical challenges and they develop bonds of friendship that last a lifetime. They are young women who become leaders in their colleges, work places, and communities.

Laurel School has two campuses.  The original Lyman Circle Campus, situated on 11 acres in Shaker Heights, is home to all four academic divisions. Opened in 2002, the 140-acre Butler Campus features extensive athletic facilities and opportunities for outdoor education and leadership-building programs.
