Employment and Internships

It is no surprise that many members of Lab’s faculty and staff have stayed for 15-25-35 or more years. One staff member said: "Everyone wants to stay at Lab. Who wouldn’t embrace the opportunity to be flexible and creative every day? Frankly, it feels like an honor to be a part of Lab, to play a role in our collective mission and process of helping students with learning differences discover their best selves and succeed.”

The Lab School of Washington is situated in the Palisades neighborhood of Washington, DC. Located minutes from historic Georgetown, the Potomac waterfront, and a short drive to the museums, monuments, and other local historic sites. Lab spans two campuses — just a half-mile apart — and offers its faculty and staff the opportunity to work in a creative, collegial, and collaborative atmosphere.

“It’s easy to feel excited to get up each morning and come to Lab. Sure, we work incredibly hard, but there’s nothing more rewarding than witnessing a child find success in a skill area that used to be so daunting for them like a ‘non-reader’ turning into a bookworm or a student who struggled to express herself talk enthusiastically about a family vacation or favorite movie.”
