Our Mission
The Laurens-Marathon school is a community learning center that enhances the development of knowledge, skills, attitudes, and the belief statements that maximize the success of the individual and community. The district provides the leadership to implement the school's mission, beliefs, and essential learnings. This task is completed by the employment of quality staff and their continual development. The district provides appropriate instruction, time, materials, technology, equipment and facilities for individuals to successfully compete in society. The learner demonstrates the defined essential learnings prior to graduation from high school. The mastery of these essential learnings is necessary to develop skilled, inquisitive, creative, self-confident, self-directed, contributing, and quality individuals prepared to lead America.
