Our School

Laurel Meadow Elementary School buildingWelcome to Laurel Meadow Elementary School (LMES), a pre-kindergarten through fifth grade school located in Mechanicsville, Virginia. Established in 2008, Laurel Meadow is a community school with a population of approximately 550 students. We inspire our students and staff, affectionately known as Laurel Meadow Lions, to achieve to their fullest potential.

Laurel Meadow Elementary prides itself on recognizing a “whole child approach.” We begin each day with a morning meeting, wherein students gather in a circle for 20 to 30 minutes and interact with one another through greetings, sharing, group activities, and morning messages. We find this builds a strong sense of community and sets children up for success socially and academically.

Additionally, LMES implements Math Workshop in grades k–5. Math Workshop involves students in small group instruction and differentiated math tasks that are appropriate for their level of learning. The focus is on problem solving and student talk about math methods. Students have choices in their activities and have time for practicing big ideas.
