The mastery-based school in Mountain View, California associated with Khan Academy.

Khan Lab School (KLS) is a non-profit, independent, co-ed school for ages 5 - 18+ founded in 2014 by Salman “Sal” Khan, founder of Khan Academy and author of the book, The One World Schoolhouse. At KLS, academic progress is decoupled from age as every student is expected to demonstrate mastery before moving on. Learning time is variable but the depth of mastery is constant. Learning is supported through weekly 1-1 advising, real-world application, and a culture that fosters student agency. As a lab school KLS is a model for innovation in education.
