The Lab School of Washington is dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive community that accepts and affirms the full identities of all people.
We know through experience that people with learning differences are often subjected to multiple levels of potential disadvantage and discrimination in school and in the community through dynamics such as lowered expectations, tracking, tokenism, stereotype threat, and implicit bias against LD.
At Lab, we celebrate difference in learning with courage, experience, and resourcefulness. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to creating a learning environment that helps our students feel a sense of belonging at school; we work to ensure our students do not have to hide aspects of themselves because they fear peers who will make fun of their learning differences. We come to the diversity and inclusion experience authentically from the learning difference perspective. Our community at The Lab School is particularly primed for authentic work in inclusion, diversity, and social justice. We operate from a fundamental foundation, which most schools have to to spend years building.
