Students in seventh and eighth grades enter our Junior High program where executive functioning, responsibility and structure are emphasized. Computer proficiency, science, drama, literature and writing, and intensive remediation in reading and math are part of every student’s daily schedule. Humanities are brought to life though experiential teaching, similar to the younger students’ Academic Clubs; students explore the evolution of government and become experienced “world travelers,” immersed in the study of other nations.
The annual science trip to the Teton Science School in Jackson, Wyoming, is a memory-making experience that teaches environmental awareness – with the added lure of snowshoeing and sleigh riding! Every member of the Lab School community – parents included – looks forward to the three times per year culminating moment when Junior High entrepreneurs apply their knowledge of world customs, culture and cuisine by running a three-day, on-site internationally themed restaurant. Interscholastic sports and The Lab School’s award-winning, championship debate team round out the Junior High programs.
