About Khan Lab School

Small School.
Big Outcomes.

Founded in 2014, Khan Lab School is a non-profit, mastery-based school located in the heart of Silicon Valley.  Created by Sal Khan, the founder of Khan Academy and author of One World Schoolhouse, the school has served as a site of innovation for teaching and learning.

Our student-centered approach ignites students’ curiosity, promotes independent learners, and encourages students to pursue projects that align with their interests and ambitions. As a mastery-based school, we focus on the learning outcomes that matter most and evaluate student growth with meaningful metrics rather than traditional letter grades.
