Students build on their strengths and passions, embrace leadership opportunities, and develop strategies to tackle what’s challenging.
Through a unique arts-centered curriculum, the High School offers engaging courses that build the academic skills needed for college and career success, while simultaneously promoting organization, study, and test-taking skills.
The Lab School’s program is guided by the principles put forth by John Dewey who promoted a progressive education based on a variety of authentic learning experiences that engage the natural curiosity of students.
We want our students to:
- be problem solvers, collaborators, and creative thinkers.
- be self-aware and self-directed, take risks, confront challenges, and stretch themselves.
- know that we’ll be there to support them.
- discover their strengths and passions and develop strategies to tackle what’s challenging.
“Having ADHD is awesome, actually. Everyone else is looking at the world through a tiny straw, but people like me who have ADHD see the whole picture.”
