Geared toward children ages 10-12, the Intermediate program focuses on 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.
Written language is strongly emphasized at the Intermediate level; a computer-based Writer’s Studio encourages youngsters to explore all forms of written expression. Intermediate mathematics concentrates on abstract reasoning as well as computation skills. Academic Clubs continue to be important features of the Intermediate program. And, true to the “Lab tradition,” the full spectrum of arts helps students access challenging new material.
Our emphasis on written language makes The Lab School of Washington among the most sought-after independent language-based schools for students with learning differences (often referred to as learning disabilities). We believe that every child is capable of achieving extraordinary things, and we’ve designed our school to help every child learn in a way that is suited to their unique needs and strengths, regardless of learning difficulties. The Lab School offers psychological services, tutoring, and speech-language therapy and evaluation to ensure each student has the best chances of success.
