What Makes Us Different

Khan Lab School is a community of learners empowering every student to navigate their own path.

Departing from traditional grade levels and grading systems, our mastery-inspired and project-based approach motivates students to achieve meaningful learning goals and benchmarks.


The best teaching and learning processes are student-centered and encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning.

Students are encouraged, at every stage of the learning process, to adopt an active stance toward their education. They shouldn't just take things in; they should figure things out.

Faculty-guides focus on student motivation, unblocking academic or social-emotional hurdles and guiding students through student-driven experiential learning.  They also create the context and conditions for student independence and may question, prompt or provide short explanations, but they do not lecture. Our dynamic and innovative learning experience fosters this growth.
