U of C Laboratory Schools Virtual Open House
The Lab experience starts with the notion that children are to be taken seriously—as thinkers and as contributors in a community of learners. Then, between teacher and student, adult and child, a relationship develops that is born of respect—and an understanding that each person’s voice deserves to be heard.
Because the Laboratory Schools are part of the world-renowned University of Chicago, the importance of intellectual life—of thought and exploration—infuses everything we do across all aspects of our curriculum.
Families who choose to send their children to Lab care deeply about curiosity, inquiry, and education. All are attracted to this environment that creates and nurtures the hallmark habits of expansive thinking and complex problem-solving.
