UCLA Lab School strives to be a caring community of learners dedicated to educating the whole child. We value learning that is collaborative, experiential, interdisciplinary, and inquiry-based. We delight in children’s natural joy of discovery. We believe our role as educators is to listen to children’s voices and encourage them to see themselves as active agents of positive change in their classrooms, communities, and the world.
Fundamental to this work is our Safe School approach, a system for creating and maintaining an environment that encourages all members of our school to be inclusive, to collaborate, to listen to diverse perspectives, and to be reflective in their learning.
