Congratulations to our students! On the Iowa Test of Basic Skills October 2014, St. Laurence class scores were in the top 30% of the nation.
"In this complex world, it takes more than a good school to educate children. And it takes more than a good home. It takes these two major educational institutions working together."
Welcome to our home on the web. We are a school centered around providing more.
As a parent, you’re the most important influence on your child’s future. But what about the other people in his or her life? At St. Laurence, your child will receive an outstanding academic foundation from people who share your values. Nationally, Catholic school students outperform others on tests for math, reading and science. They also lead in graduation rates, and they’re the most likely to go on to college. Catholic school students receive a solid moral and spiritual foundation. After all, Catholic schools have always believed Christian teachings belong in school.
“There was something about the closeness and comfort of the school. Everybody was like family to me.”
“At St. Laurence, unlike any other school, the teachers get to know you personally…St. Laurence is more than a basic school, it’s where we learned about God, our faith, and how to become better people.”
“This school has made me who I am today, it has truly formed me to into a person I actually am proud to be.”
“I never realized how much a small school could make such an impact in one person’s life.”
