The Lab School values its progressive philosophy of education that for 50 years has guided project-based learning for students with average and above intellectual abilities whose minds need to be nourished while they take the extra time they need to acquire proficient reading and writing skills. Through exposure to the arts, immersion in experiential learning opportunities, and engagement in hands-on science labs, Lab students discover the joy of learning and have practice in problem solving at an early age. Diversity is celebrated and cultural competency is a primary goal.

Our strong sense of a community with a common purpose is fundamental to our daily success with our students. Strengthened by their passion and faith in the school’s mission, our administrators are instrumental in building a community of professionals that are well prepared to take on the challenges of delivering a life-changing education. Our administrators are encouraged to engage in professional development in leadership, innovation, and instruction. In turn, our teachers thrive in an environment that is fueled by optimism and professional support. Working alongside their leaders, they are encouraged to develop inspired curricula and effective methodologies. Their efforts are supported by professional development in a wide range of topics including reading, arts, learning differences, health and wellness, mindfulness, inclusivity and equity.

The Lab School of Washington is an inclusive and welcoming school that celebrates diversity, including ability and learning differences, race, color, religion, national and ethnic origin, gender identity and sexual orientation. We welcome candidates representing the diversity of today’s global world in our educational programs, admission policies, financial aid program, hiring, and school-administered programs.
