Innovation & Investigation
The Khan Lab School was created to investigate and explore new methods of learning and instruction. We take a hands-on and sustained approach to research blended learning and education innovation, sharing our insights with schools and networks around the world.
Empowering Our Kids
Our students are capable of anything. We give them tools to become lifelong, passionate learners. We give them the power to strive, fail and flourish.
Pioneering New Models of Learning
The Khan Lab School was founded to develop new, personalized practices that center around the student. With this in mind we hope to develop and test new types of learning experiences and practices that can be shared with the world.
In keeping with Sal Khan’s The One World Schoolhouse philosophy, the school is a extended-year, extended-day, mixed-age program with a collaborative, project-based learning approach. There is not traditional homework, grade levels, or grades, but 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.
