After School

The After School model offers homework time every day with flexibility and fun in the options afterwards.

After having a snack and completing their work, students will have an opportunity to relax and enjoy an activity from the choices provided. Outside play, art, and board games will be available every day, and we will have a movie day on Fridays. 

Additional programming such as Dungeons & Dragons, Fun Fitness, Chess, and Gardening will be offered based on enrollment and interest.

Convenient for working parents and stimulating for students, the after school program is a popular feature of The Lab School of Washington.

Students engage their creativity, challenge themselves mentally and physically, cultivate friendships, and continue to develop important social skills.

The after school program is available for children in Elementary, Intermediate, and Junior High. 

The Lab School provides an enriching, supportive environment for children with dyslexia, children with ADHD, and other learning challenges. Like our educational curricula, the after school program is specifically tailored to help children of all needs and abilities.
