The school serves two interlocking missions: to design and deliver the best possible education to its students, and to serve the educational research and development community as an inventing and testing ground for high quality educational programs.
The vision of the University Laboratory School is that “all students graduate ready for college, work and responsible citizenship.”
Schoolwide Learner Goals
University Laboratory School will prepare its students to be ready for college, work and responsible citizenship, through a program emphasizing disciplines of knowledge and habits of mind, as indicated by demonstrating skills development in the areas of critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication. In addition, our school focuses on three strategic areas: education of our own students, research in the area of educational best practices, and dissemination of educational best practices via professional development.
