The Lab Way

World Languages

The goal of the World Languages/Cultural Studies program at the Lab School is to graduate 8th graders who are conversationally fluent in their selected language and to prepare them for advanced foreign language study in high school. At the Lab School, families have a choice to pursue Spanish or Mandarin Chinese.

  • Spanish is taught through a partial-immersion approach, with students spending two hours/day practicing the language and learning a Cultural Studies curriculum through the language.
  • Mandarin Chinese is taught through daily classes focusing specifically on the language.
