I. Progress Report

The City of Laurel Crossing opened a new primary school, Laurel Grove Primary, at the beginning of the year. With the new curriculum, I am pleased to report the educational success of all students. So far, we are above the SimNational average of schools meeting the minimum academic standards. By the end of the next school year, we will be counted among the SimNationally accredited school systems. We expect continued success with our challenging curriculum.

Construction of our secondary school, Laurel Hills Secondary, is now completed and ready to open for the fall semester, coinciding perfectly for the beginning of the school year. An open house is scheduled for next week, for campus tours and for student registration. Parents are urged to complete registration for their children, no later than the end of next week. Enrollment and registration forms are available on campus and can be submitted via fax, email or in person.

II. News and Information

Designs for the new university in Laurel Crossing have been approved and all permits have been obtained. Construction is expected to begin next month. A groundbreaking ceremony is set for October 1.

Interested in fulfilling a career in education? The Laurel Crossing School System is always on the lookout for teachers and administrators. We are opening the search to all qualified applicants in surrounding cities as well. If you are interested in applying, please send an inquiry to cityoflaurelcrossing@gmail.com, with ATTN: Department of Education. All non-local applicants will also need to coordinate with the Office of Immigration. Having a solid job offer will assist in the immigration process.

III. Goals

With our innovative curriculum, we expect to continue to be above average to comparable national school systems. Our curriculum is designed to not only prepare students to enter the workforce after graduation, but to also adequately prepare for post-secondary education at any college or university, local or non-local.

We will be eligible for recognitions at the end of the school year next spring. Parents are encouraged to actively participate in their children’s education. Tutoring will be available after two weeks into the new school year, and SPAT prep classes will commence in October in time for the December testing. Other options can be discussed with individual teacher-parent conferences.

IV. Additional Comments

Let’s do everything we can in educating our youth, so we can properly prepare them for the future!
