Why Lab?

The Charlotte Lab School offers a unique approach to teaching and learning, making it a great new option for Charlotte-area families and educators.

  • Parent/Educator-Led. Designed to provide the kind of experiences, opportunities and approaches to teaching and learning that educators and parents alike desire for their children.
  • Diversity. Reflects the true diversity of Charlotte– racially, ethnically, and socioeconomically.
  • Choice. Expands the public school choices available to Charlotte students and families.
  • Community As Our Classroom. Utilizes the cultural resources of the Charlotte metro-area to expand and enhance learning opportunities.
  • Technology. Harnesses the power of technology to enhance – not replace – the learning experience, to create anytime/anywhere learning opportunities, to make the school run more efficiently, and to enable real-time communication and collaboration.
  • Learning, Not Testing. As a charter school, the Lab School has full autonomy with curriculum, enabling a constructivist, student-centered approach with less emphasis on test prep.
