Laney is a terrific school. My son is a junior and an honors student. My daughter is a freshman this year and is off to a great start. All of my children's teachers except for two have been superior. I mean exceptional!!! Mr. O'Briant is the most dedicated Principal I have ever seen. I volunteer in this school every week in the main office and I know what goes on. Some of the office staff is a little weak but otherwise, I am very happy. Both of my children attended a small catholic school through 8th grade so I was pleasantly surprised at just what an awesome education my kids are getting.

This school strives for achievement but may not be fair in discipline and may not make the students feel completely safe and comfortable at all times

This school is the best kept secret in the New Hanover County School System. Challenging and caring teachers along with a very enthusiastic administrative team. The proof in the pudding is how their students do after graduation. They are high achievers at some of the best Universities and Academies in the country.

My daughter has attended Laney for the past 3 years. I have been to the school many times to deal with issues concerning a variety of subjects and I have always found the staff to be extremely helpful and considerate. My daughter has had every opportunity to get the best education to be found in a public school. I highly recommend this school to parents looking for a place where their child can explore character and abilities and find out who they are while growing up.

The staff at Laney has been most helpful in trying to keep our underachiever on track. They keep us informed and offer helpful tools to achieve success. We are gratefule to be part of such a fine school, and look forward to our second child completing her public school education here at Laney.

This school has potential but I only see it excelling in the far future. For right now, academics are standard, but I would never call them challenging. Athletics have been better. Parental involvement is lacking, and most parents in it are what you would call, overly concerned. Overall, I would say this school needs improvement, but it's not completely useless.
