NYC Lab High School for Collaborative Studies Reviews

I am a new freshman so I have only been here for about a month. I chose Lab over a specialized school because of the sense of community and I have not been disappointed. What makes Lab unique is that there are great academics but that is not all. The teachers are incredible, the best part of Lab in my opinion. I feel connected to all of my teachers already. Most of the sports teams are good and there are great club options. The one thing I would say is there is little diversity and it is a bit cliquey. All in all, I love Lab!

NYC Lab School was the very foundation that helped me discover who I was and who I wanted. With teachers that feel more like family, and courses that truly challenge you, Lab is beyond an exemplary example of what high school should consist of. If you were ever falling behind, you had teachers who reached out and always offered the utmost support. There was an endless amount of opportunities offered at Lab, and I regret not taking advantage of them all. If you do decide to make the best academic and social decision of your life possible, please utilize everything this amazing institution brings to the table. You will truly miss it when its over.
The Lab School was the best place I could have gone to for high school. The open, accepting, and inviting atmosphere made me feel at home right away. There are amazing teachers and staff that encourage their students to succeed. The teaching is collaborative and always thought-provoking. Students feel comfortable and safe inside the school walls. The community is tight-knit and welcoming. Everyone is proud to be a Labbie.
