Congratulations to Mr. McKiernan for being named a recipient of the 2018 Sloan Award for Excellence in Teaching Science and Mathematics, given by the Fund for the City of New York and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This prestigious award recognizes creative mathematics and science teachers who support their students, achieve superior academic results, and inspire students through engaging and relevant student research, small group instruction, and developing presentation skills. We are extremely proud of Mr. McKiernan!
Students benefit from our technology program which features three computer labs,
SMART Boards in all classrooms, trips to Google and New York's Silicon Alley, MOUSE
Squad, and student technology teams. In addition, the school is part of the DOE
Software Engineering Pilot, allowing students to learn coding, robotics, HTML, and
many other programs.
Parents love our innovative technology and finance programs where students are immersed in a schoolwide economy with School Bucks, financial courses, school jobs, a school bank, and a school store. We serve students in grades 6-12.
Lab School seniors meet with their mentors to complete a career exploration rubric. One of the many ways mentors are helping to prepare students for college and careers. Please see our partnership page for other important partnerships that help us prepare students for success in our school and beyond.
