What is a Lab School?

What is a Lab School?

Laboratory schools are dedicated to research-based instruction and furthering innovation in education. Many of these schools are connected to universities, where students are able to benefit from university resources and best practices. Khan Lab School takes this concept one step further: we are connected to Khan Academy, and our students benefit from the international reach and expertise of one of the most well-known educational non-profits in the world.

Each day, millions of people visit Khan Academy to learn at their own pace. The free online lessons are available in dozens of languages, carefully curated by a diverse team of developers, teachers, designers, strategists, scientists, and content specialists. Khan Academy believes in inspiring the world to learn, and Khan Lab School is an important part of that mission: we bring Sal Khan’s “One World Schoolhouse” philosophy to life with rooms full of mixed-age students who are excited to come to school each day.

Our dedicated team is constantly improving the educational experience for our learners, and we are committed to sharing our findings with teachers around the globe.
