    As I speak with potential home buyers, the topic of schools inevitably comes up. I, too, faced this exact dilemma when I was looking for a home. I loved Highland Lakes, but I had three children and their futures to think about. My youngest ones were no problem at all, they would go to Mt. Laurel Elementary if I bought a house in Highland Lakes. I cannot say enough good things about the school and faculty. I doubt you would find many, if anyone, who would say anything negative.

    But I had a teenager to think about and I was torn as I had heard such amazing things about Oak Mountain. But, Highland Lakes does not fall into the district for Oak Mountain Schools. So I hit the pavement and visited both schools and talked to as many people as I could.

    While on paper Oak Mountain Middle School edges out Chelsea Middle School, I could not find one major detractor to not consider Chelsea. My wife and I talked long and hard; we weighed all the pros and cons. We figured that if we pushed our child to excel he would be successful wherever he went. You see, while the school does play some roll in your child's development it is ultimately up to the parents to drive the overall success of their child.

    I can say without a doubt that our son has settled well as he is being challenged and pushed to do well. The teachers and staff at Chelsea Middle School have been a dream to work with. I have no doubt that Chelsea Middle School is helping to set my son up for success in high school and beyond. I am also sure that Oak Mountain Middle school is as amazing as the reviews say. My point is don't let a report be your final deciding factor; explore all options and make a decision based on the whole picture.

    A year ago when my daughters first started at Mt. Laurel they were blown away. Having moved from Scotland seeing a castle was a normal thing. However we did not expect to see one in Birmingham, Alabama. From the minute we walked through the front door the staff and students made us feel as if we had come home. My daughters love attending Mt. Laurel Elementary and they consistently are excited to get up and go! This is unheard of, kids actually loving school on a mass scale! You need to visit Mt. Laurel Elementary and see it for yourself.

    Westminster is extraordinary, not just because of the academic excellence and statistics it can boast, but because of the community of solidarity that trickles down from the administration to the youngest student. You'll find peaceful classrooms filled with students who seem genuinely interested and actively engaged in learning material that is academically rigorous. The common theme is "Our kids know that they are loved, heard, and valued at Westminster."

    Founded in 1999 as Oak Mountain Classical School, the classical Christian school has a current enrollment of over 500 students (K-12th). Located at the corner of Hwy 119 and Cahaba Valley Trace, it's about three miles from Hwy 280 and six miles from I-65. There are openings available in 2nd, 7th, and 8th grades for 2016.

    The great thing about Mt. Laurel is that you can walk to almost anything you need or want to do. It is a side walk community. Mt. Laurel Elementary,established in 2004, is no exception. Parents have the opportunity to walk their kids to school if they want. It definitely reminds me of when I walked to school , in the olden days! The school's medieval architecture only adds to the educational experience. Mt. Laurel Elementary was recently recognized "by the Seaside Institute for Smart Growth, a non-profit organization founded to promote Traditional Neighborhood Developments, for its many innovative projects". The school has an enrollment of 350+ students and it offers before and after school care for children.
