From Director Robin Appleby
Lab’s long and
rich history is firmly rooted in experiential learning—a philosophy
that we believe maximizes the educational experience for our
students, be they small or tall. First and foremost, Lab teaches
students to be independent thinkers who explore challenging ideas and
celebrate the diversity of our school community.
I have been struck
by the passion with which all members of this community—students,
teachers, staff, parents, and alumni—describe their Lab experience.
While fostering strong individuality, our values result in deep
connections that last a lifetime. Kindness, born from respect for
individuality, permeates our school.
To choose to be part
of the Laboratory Schools is to embrace deeply held and widely shared
We believe in the power of the human intellect.
We believe that learning is an ongoing process that knows no boundaries, no end point.
We believe that our differences strengthen our international community.
We believe that those around us should inspire, support, and—yes—challenge us to work to our fullest potential.
All around Lab is
evidence of a life of learning—students and families who are fully
engaged, faculty who wouldn’t want to teach anywhere else, and an
unparalleled university setting that enriches our community and
resources in incomparable ways.
Welcome to Lab.
