Preparing our students for personal and professional success includes supporting our families, educating the public, and review the latest scientific research and literature for application in the classroom. Here’s a look at our offerings as well as a list of further resources. 

Lecture Series: Programming for Parents and the Public 

Lab offers educational programs for parents, families, educational professionals, therapists, and community members. Our monthly lecture series offers enlightening and informative talks on timely and relevant topics such as sleep health, school-related anxiety, ADHD research, executive functioning challenges, neurodiversity, and the dangers of vaping.

PALS: Parents Association of The Lab School 

Just as your students feel they’ve found a place to fit in, Lab families also embark on their own shared experience. We encourage Lab parents to get to know each other and become more involved with their child’s education through PALS, which all year long spearheads community events for staff, students, and families in and beyond school.
