The Mission of The Laurel School is to improve educational outcomes for people with learning disabilities and to empower them to become accomplished, dynamic members of society. We will achieve this through evidence-based instruction for our students and expert professional development for educators.
The Laurel School of Princeton is dedicated to ensuring that dyslexic children and those with other language-based language-based learning differences the earliest grades become confident learners who are eager to demonstrate their individual strengths. Early intervention takes advantage of the “neuroplasticity” of the brain, providing a strong foundation for learning. We strive to inspire our students and equip them with the tools needed to achieve academic success. We achieve this through a powerful combination of teaching methodologies and technology. Our highly structured Orton–Gillingham multisensory program enhances academics, and also provides opportunities to nurture creative spirits.
As a specialized school, we individualize instruction to the unique learning challenges of our students. We foster the exploration of their gifts and talents both in and out of the school environment. We believe it is critical to provide experiences that validate their individuality while building confidence and self-esteem. Resilient children are more successful as adults.

Towards these ends, we strive to build community among our students, staff our families.
