Description

Laurel Park is a growing multi-track year round elementary school located between Cary and Apex. We are focused on providing challenging and meaningful learning experiences so that our students thrive in a culture of excellence. We do this by cultivating student abilities in the classroom through positive relationships that encourage young children to ask questions, to apply their learning through hands-on investigations, and to understand and also take responsibility for the choices they make.

The quality of each student's learning at Laurel Park is enhanced by the special resources available within the school. For example, we have an outstanding fine arts program that builds student skills with performance in visual arts and music. Every student attends classes in technology as well as Spanish as a part of their program of studies. We boast a library media collection with over 20,000 volumes in addition to subscriptions to current multimedia resources. We also have a physical education program that integrates a PTA sponsored School Garden with lessons to encourage students to make healthy choices for an active lifestyle.

Nurturing your child through their journey of building foundational academic and social skills is what we try to do every day. Our teachers collaborate with each other regularly to plan lessons, monitor student learning, and to use data about student progress to guide their instruction. We are committed to providing every child with a safe and supportive environment so they can do their best work. The active support of parents who volunteer in the classroom and participate in the school PTA is a significant asset for our school. Each year the PTA sponsors numerous different student clubs, special events, and cultural arts activities that compliment our school's instructional program. As part of these efforts, the PTA organizes family friendly events each month. These events help build a sense of community and provide opportunities for families to make a direct impact reinforcing student learning throughout the year.

Important: Bus routes are subject to change based on actual student distribution, parent appeals, and other factors. The information here will be updated regularly, but updates may take several days to be reflected online. This route information last updated: 10:21 AM, Thu, Jul 24, 2014.

Stop times: Because routes change daily during the first weeks of school, specific stop times are not provided. Parents can anticipate a stop time based on the route start time, estimating 5 minutes between stops in suburban areas, and 5 to 10 minutes between stops in rural areas. The exact stop time will vary during the first weeks of school. Stop times may vary as much as 30 minutes as students settle into their routines. Students should be ready and waiting for the bus at least 10 minutes before the bus is expected to arrive.

Bus schedules: We urge parents to be patient as routes settle during the first few weeks of school. Bus routes may be extended by as much as 30 minutes as students become familiar with a new routine.

Questions?: Contact the Apex Transportation Office.
