- Student Life
In 2012, when writing The One World Schoolhouse, I outlined how modern education developed and how Khan Academy came to be. But, most importantly, the book
outlines a vision for the future of both in-person and online education given the tools we have and the need for many more people to participate in the knowledge economy. Two years
later, I founded Khan Lab School to test and refine these ideas in an actual school setting. Today, our school has grown to encompass a Lower School (K-6) and an Upper School (7th-12th) that
collectively serve over 260 students.
From our founding, the core ideas of the school have been
We believe that while content knowledge matters, that less is more and that we focusing on essential content and skills prepares students for their future.
While academic mastery is important, we also place an explicit emphasis on student mindfulness and social-emotional learning. At Khan Lab School, all of our decisions are made through the
lens of what is best for our students. We tackle tough questions without ego, are results oriented, and have high expectations for our school and our students.
Thanks for your interest in Khan Lab School. We look forward to getting to know you through our application process.
