Pioneering New Models of Learning
Khan Lab School was founded to develop new, personalized practices that center around the student. We create and test learning experiences to share with the world. In keeping with Sal Khan’s One World Schoolhouse philosophy, the school is an extended-year, extended-day, mixed-age program with a collaborative, project-based learning approach.
We do not have homework, grade levels, or grades, and the school is mastery-based. The main focus in all subjects is leveraging world-class teacher-designers to build a community that encourages inquiry and self-direction.
Khan Lab School is a non-profit, non-denominational, co-educational school enrolling and providing education to children without regard to gender, race, nationality, ethnic origin, or religious beliefs.
