Two students smiling at camera in Intermediate art class

Intermediate

Students learn to apply their academic skills, embrace a higher level of independence, and engage in arts-centered, project-based learning in all subjects.

“Being at Lab has made me an extrovert. I’m never afraid to speak my opinion and I feel like Lab is a very welcoming place for that.”
— Lab School Student

Geared toward children ages 10-12, the Intermediate program focuses on growth and transition. Although still “ungraded,” students move to The Lab School’s main campus on Reservoir Road and begin to assume more structure in their daily routine, as attention to executive functioning skills becomes a priority.
